Two weeks ago I stated that I would give away a copy of Stephen A. Macchia's Crafting a Rule of Life: An Invitation to the Well-Ordered Way, a new title from IVP's Formatio Press. Check out the blog here.
I also said that I'd post a reminder last Monday, but failed to do so. Very sorry I did not follow through. But if you've been waiting, here is a chance to add to your library.
Here are four ways to enter:
- Share this opportunity on Twitter. Mention me: @bsimpson.
- Comment on this thread. Answer the question below.
- Send me an email this week by clicking here. Tell me one book I should be reading. Write two sentences detailing why.
- Like my Facebook Page. Leave a comment on the timeline, sharing a favorite quotation.
Here is the question:
Have you ever put pen to paper and written a rule or a vision document to help guide your decisions? If so, what was your experience? If not, how could you envision this being helpful?
When I was in seminary, I was required to write a 25+ page paper, tracing my history, identifying my gifts, discerning my talents, outlining goals, and envisioning my future. I still have the paper, and while I've made some different choices, the discipline itself helped place me on a trajectory that has been a blessing.
You can enter more than once to increase your chances and to have a little fun.
There is more to come this week, I assure you. I've been running a small business, which I plan to write about, and taking care of the family. But I've read plenty and have been inspired quite a bit, and have stuff to share, including a couple of posts about writing a rule of life. If you don't already, please subscribe to the blog in the right hand column. And if you do, I'm so glad to have you as a reader!
