It is so good to get all the new resources finalized and available to people. I’m excited that THE JESUS LENS DVDs are out, and so is the video on-line for those who want to view it for free. A MAN LIKE NO OTHER has arrived at the docks in California, now it’s just a matter of getting them through customs, which is not an easy process these days. And IN SEASON is at the printer’s with a promised date of November 7, while we’re working on getting the e-book made for that. The number of pre-orders for both of those books have really surprised us.
And during this busy season it has been a joy to be on the end of hosting travelers, instead of being the one crawling on the airplanes! Last week we had a mother and daughter visit us from Visalia, and a couple from Colorado Springs stay with us for four days. Last night I met with a local group of believers who are part of a church plant in the area. They have been reading SO YOU DON’T WANT TO GO TO CHURCH ANYMORE and wanted to ask some provocative questions about all that in light of what they’re involved in. What a delightful group of people and a wonderful evening.
This afternoon a young couple arrives from Indiana to stay with us a few days. Then it’s the grandkids coming to Camp Grandma on Saturday night! That will be lots of fun. Then next weekend I’m off to Omaha, before returning in early November. Then we’ll have another wave of visitors coming from Sacramento, upstate New York, Texas and England. Wow! It’s nice to have some folks come this way for a change. I don’t always get the chance to intersect with people who come to the area, because of my travel schedule and other meetings out here, but it’s always nice when it does work out.
Then Sara and I are going into stealth mode to sneak into Green Bay, Wisconsin to catch a Packer game at Lambeau Field for the first time ever. We are also looking forward to meeting the folks that invited us. Then it’s Thanksgiving with family before I’m off to Louisiana to hopefully end my trips for the year. And in the meantime I’m working on a book for THE JESUS LENS book and finally giving some time to the FINDING CHURCH book, which I’ve been playing with for a number of years.
