You know how sometimes, you read something, it inspires you to really make changes and then you may start procrastinating about when you will actually begin with the changes.
I DON'T want that to happen after reading Radical! I have to say this has been a real roller coaster read, but I have really loved it! It has stepped on my toes, made me feel like a selfish self centered person, and just plain hurt my feelings. But not without showing me the way to make things right.
I don't feel like I have to change the world, I just have to start with making changes with myself.
I am so taking the challenge.!
I can pray for the entire world.
I can read through the entire word.
I can sacrifice my money for a specific purpose.
I can spend time in another context.
I can commit my life to a multiplying community.
While I know that I can do all of those things, I also know that doing them will take discipline and me really committing to making it happen.
I'm not sure which will be the most challenging for me. I think the first two will just be getting into a routine of doing them, the last three will be more challenging. But I am definitely doing them.
I have really enjoyed being a part of Marla's read a long!!
