Winter is Reading Time

Winter is reading time.  Never mind the beach with its sand and flies and barking dogs.  Shut-in-from-the-cold winter is the time for books.  As usual, there is more than one in process piled on my table.  Current list:

Just finishedEverybody’s Normal Till You Get to Know Them” by John Ortberg.  Funny as ever, with a serious message hidden midst the laughter.

“The Priestly Bride” by Anna Rountree – lifts the God-hungry heart to a place of intense longing, almost to a point of pain.  Beautiful word painting of our Beloved.

“Redefining the Role of Women in the Church ” by Dr. James T. Davis.  The best I have ever read on what Scripture really says about the role of women, and how distortions over the years have kept 50% of the Body of Christ in bondage.  Excellent Bible study as well.

“Pen on Fire” by Barbara DeMarco-Barrett.  Clearly written encouragement for would be writers, with excercises at the conclusion of each chapter.

New Additions to the Pile:

“The Throne Room Company “by Shawn Bolz

The Supernatural Power of a Transformed Mind” by Bill Johnson.

“Soul Tsunami” by Dr. Leonard Sweet (a gift this Christmas)

“Growing Old Ain’t for Wimps” (gift from my housemate, Margaret.)

Some time I want to get to “Divine Conspiracy” by Dallas Willard.  Guess we could use a long winter.  Put the coffe on and another log on the fire….and maybe even unplug the phone!

  1. Hey, how does a Sunday lunch or dinner in Williamsport sound? I have no idea what you’re feeling up to, so we could go out somewhere, or whatever…but maybe Dean and all them and Alan and all them would like to meet Katherine? I don’t recall how far away Dean lives…but anyway, let me know if that’s something that could come together with such last-minute notice.

  2. So we’re on for Cornerstone (service at 10:30, right?) and lunch…but how ’bout lunch in Frederick somewhere? I’m just thinking that that would save us an hour’s worth of driving and give us more time for hanging out. It’s up to you; we’re cool with either one. Call me to let me know, as we’re about to head out.
