OF THE MONTH
As far as inspirational books go, this one has been a particular favorite of mine. One that has impacted my faith in a way that few books have. A crisis of faith leads the main character to a journey of discovery that will result in encountering the life and teachings of Francis of Assisi resulting in the rediscovery of a faith that is as beautiful as it is divine. I hope you will join me this month in reading (re-reading) "Chasing Francis" by Ian Morgan Cron.

Chasing Francis, pg. 147
"Shalom is a deep harmony with the universe," Bernard said. "When sin entered the world, it ruptured the friendship we'd once had with God, with other people, with ourselves, with our bodies, and with the environment. Our spiritual, social psychological, physical and ecological relationships were fractured. Francis preached a gospel that was holistic. He wanted his hearers to have a those torn dimensions of their lives repaired. Conversion was about being reconciled and restored in every aspect of life. For Francis, that could only happen through the blood of Jesus, living by the words of Scripture, and conforming our lives to the gospel.
