Sorry it's taken me forever to post something new on here. Facebook and college tends to take up a lot of my time...
So, I just finished this AMAZING book called Ordinary Radical, by Shane Claiborne. He takes the gospel quite literally, and has let Christ lead him all over the world, including a ten-week stint with Mother Teresa in Calcutta, India; Baghdad, Iraq, where he visited children's hospitals that had been bombed (yes, by Americans) and worshiped with the Christians there; and downtown Philly, where he is one of the co-founders of an "experiment in community," The Simple Way. God has truly blessed him.
I also decided to start using another book that he co-wrote in my devotional life: Common Prayer. Such a beautiful collection of liturgy. I highly recommend it.
