Even though I promised myself I wouldn't. Even though every time I couldn't get the wording right or the pages right or my thoughts in any kind of order I said I'd never write another book. I am. Two of them. Funny how God uses that multiplies principle at inconvenient times. I told myself I'd maybe write another book when I finished grad school. I'm not at all finished with school and yet I find myself opening a new file on my computer and writing Chapter 1. Happy sigh. I'm finding that one becomes a writer because one can't not write. Don't like double negatives? Too bad :)
My next book will be about the church, about this generation and the one behind me, and why church cannot possibly continue as it has been. I've always had a love hurt relationship with church the building and church the people. And I'm not going to lie - being a single 32 year old woman makes it hard to fit into any church setting. I adore the people I worship with currently, but I still don't exactly fit there. I don't really fit anywhere. And in great moments of faith I consider that a spiritual blessing because it throws me into the arms of the Almighty just about all the time. But sometimes, if I'm really honest, I wish the church could be everywhere. And why can't it be?
I'm planning to figure that out in the months to come.
And the journey continues......
