It has now been seven months since the book came out and a few interesting things have happened since then. I was invited to share color commentary with my friend and small group guru Jay Firebaugh at New Life Church in Gahanna, Ohio on Oct. 25 and 26th. I was also commissioned to write a feature article for the Assemblies of God new magazine venture, Vital. This will be online as well as available for subscription purchase at http://vitalmagazine.com/subscribe
The article will be featured in their inaugural print issue, right now scheduled for January 2015. The article’s main focus deals with marriage and singles in the Church.
Finally, my library held a local author’s fair this past weekend. I was unable to attend, but they gave me a table for book flyers and 5 books to be given away. Plus, the library accepted a copy to put into circulation since they had not purchased it yet.
One of the amazing people I got to meet at Catalyst, where we launched the book, was Kevin Weaver. He has created a book entitled Re_Orient. Kevin and I have spoken about possible future work together, so he sent me a copy. It is more a movement than a book. Kevin takes you on a journey to find the true meaning of words of faith. Best to experience it firsthand as my words do not do it justice! Kevin’s web site is http://anuprising.com/i-am-kevin-weaver.html
I continue to work with Shaunti on updates in research related to the book and other projects she sends my way. The biggest challenge right now is to keep finding ways to get the word out about the book. I am hoping the book fair as well as the Vital magazine article will help in this endeavor.
