Encouraging note from the farmland …

Thanks for this encouragement … Nothing makes a writer or speaker feel better than hearing that people are going from “sitting pretty on their theology to taking action,” especially action that feeds hungry people and that benefits God’s stressed and exploited creation.

I’m another testimony to how God is using you and your writings…. I’ve read many of your books in the last couple months and continue to do so. I’ve gone from sitting pretty on my theology to taking action, starting a LIFE group (i.e. small group) and reaching out to the the hurting around us. We’ve been reaching out to our community and just finished a food drive that brought in 1.2 tons of food items for a mens shelter in our city of xxx.
We will soon be doing some environmental projects.
From your blogs, podcasts, GENEROUS ORTHODOXY, FINDING OUR WAY AGAIN, SECRET MESSAGE OF JESUS, to FINDING FAITH I have become reinvigorated in my work for the Kingdom. I’m a performing artist, mainly working for a ‘Christian’ theatre here amongst the beautiful farm land, where the generation-of-old has often stagnated the move of the Good News. But amongst even the cloudiest arenas of un-emerging areas, seeds are being planted for a vibrant, postmodern, active faith. Thanks for your part in planting these seeds!
