wild goose chase

So I wanted to let each of you know of a new book that came out today by one of my favorite authors.  I haven’t actually started the book but I know it will be good.  I love his previous book, In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day.  

Here is a brief summary for the book:  

Most of us have no idea where we’re going most of the time.  

“Celtic Christians had a name for the Holy Spirit – An Geadh-Glas, or ‘the Wild Goose.’  The name hints at mystery.  Much like a wild Goose, the Spirit of God cannot be tracked or tamed.  An element of danger, an air of unpredictability surround Him.  And while the name may sound a little sacrilegious, I cannot think of a better description of what it’s like to follow the Spirit through life.  I think the Celtic Christians were on to something…

Most of us will have no idea where we are going most of the time.  And I know that is unsettling.  But circumstantial uncertainty also goes by another name: Adventure.” 

Mark Batterson is the lead pastor of Washington, DC’s National Community Church, widely recognized as one of America’s most innovative churches.  NCC meets in movie theaters in metro stops throughout the city, as well as in a church-owned coffee house near Union Station.  More than seventy percent of NCC’ers are single twentysomethings who live or work on Capitol Hill.  Mark is the author of the best-selling In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day and a widely read blogger (www.markbatterson.com).  He lives on Capitol Hill with his wife, Lora, and their three children.  

Also, check out the website for the book, www.chasethegoose.com.  On the website, he has a link called 10 steps to setting life goals – worth checking out.  

If you want the book, either go to local store or go to my favorite store, here.  

Later this week, I am going to have a contest for each of you to participate in.  The winner will get a copy of Wild Goose Chase.
