The Blury Line of Fiction

Beginning last summer, people encouraged me to comment on the best selling work of fiction The DaVinci Code. Without further delay, this Sunday I will comment on Dan Brown's book.

The Urban Spirituality series continues with its second installment this weekend. How do we spiritually navigate our suburban lives? I will continue sharing reflections about the unusual word urbiculture, which designates the practices and problems peculiar to cities or urban development.

Return here for semi-regular thoughts from me - Brady.

Brady,
Nicely done on the jokes...saving the punch lines till the last. I loved Scott Stegal's story/joke. I thought the whole concept was the most effective audience participation 'activity' that you have used to date. Equating the punchline to a secret and then tieing secrets to the secrets we each have and ultimately to THE SECRET and how He eliminates the need for our secrets...masterful. I will remember that concept for years. And with your permission even use it myself.
One of the lines I read in a text book in graduate school that I often say was worth the whole amount of shcool loans I am still paying relates to this idea of our secrets. 'That which we resist, persists.'
I am going to make a conscious effort over the next two weeks to reveal the secrets in my life that are persisting and limiting my effectiveness for the Kingdom.
Thank you. Nicely done. God's Bigger.
