I don’t post a lot about church ministry–even though that’s what my “career” has always been. I graduated from college so I could go into full-time vocational ministry. I think my life is just in a different season (namely, “mommy” season) so I’m not into ministry stuff or the church-world as I once was.
Recently, I was contacted to review a book by a pastor in Washington, DC. And it perked up my ministry ears. I had not heard of this pastor or his church. But I’d love to know about life as a pastor in DC! The pastor/author is Mark Batterson (oh yeah, he’s a blogger!) and the book is Wild Goose Chase.
Well, it turns out it’s not really a book about church ministry or having the career of a pastor. (I don’t know why I thought it would be…) But I got hooked on the description of the title and I think you will, too:
“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…”
Isn’t that great? Don’t you want to read more? Well, leave me a comment and let me know…uhm…how you made it through your last month of pregnancy, the last time you were on a wild goose chase or just that you love free stuff more than life itself. Then I’ll give away ONE BOOK to ONE WINNER this weekend!
