Bo’s Cafe

I had lunch today with some of the people who came from out of state to be part of our recording in the Indianapolis area. We had a great time. I enjoy conversations so much more than lectures…

Anyway, during lunch one of those present wanted to thank me for my involvement in helping bring Bo’s Café into print. Here’s what he said:

What The Shack did for my relationship with God, Bo’s Café did to help me find freedom from my anger.

He went on to tell us the story of how God unplugged a deep-seated anger in his life after reading the book three times. He’d been looking for this freedom all his life. What a great story and a great comment about the book.

That’s why I was excited about Bo’s when I read it. Here was a man trying to control everyone else out of his own fears, and then he comes to face to face with grace. It changes him in a wonderful way. If you haven’t read it, you might want to check it out.

    I was inspired that this man read Bo’s Cafe three times and had such a significant breakthrough so I decided that I would read it a second time. What I believe God showed me was that my style of relating is to run and hide when threatened, either physically but mostly emotionally. This has been a long standing pattern since childhood. I have learned that I can not fix this, Trying harder is not the answer. Rather Jesus is standing with me in this and will do His transforming work in me while I rest in Him.

    My Dad taught me a great deal about grace. My brother Andy Barlow taught me a great deal about being free in Christ because the sin issue between God and man was resolved 2000 years ago by Jesus Christ. I wept several times as I read Bo’s Cafe because I long for authentic and real relationships with God’s people. Unfortunately I have been unable to find this in my area. Most churches are big and superficial and quite nauseating in my opinion. Thanks for penning this important book.
