After much soul-searching and prayers, he takes up the mantle realizing that the old saying, it takes a village, is exactly what it will take to revitalize this church and allow God to cleanse the “old Girl.” Highly recommend to anyone seeking to strength his/her faith and accept God’s direction in his/her life.
This is the story of a man who loves God better than himself. He has been approached by a person with God's interest at heart. And this older member has asked Jonathon McCann to take on a two-year project, to attempt to bring the old congretation with its few remaining members back to life, to impact the neighborhood again, for the Lord. Jonathon was not a preacher or a pastor or a reverend or a Father. He was just a godly man, a husband, a father of children, a friend, a coworker. He was even a businessman. How could he possibly attempt such a hurculean task? That's what this book is about. For me, since I have been close to this type of experience, seen its attempts, prayed for those who have tried, and cried over the failures and the hurts, this was a riveting read.
This may not be interesting reading for all persons. This story definitely has a target audience. But I hope you'll give it a chance. If you've ever been a member of a group of people who love God, honor Him, and want to dedicate their lives to Him, then you may have shared some of the experiences found in this book. It will touch your heart and perhaps encourage you to look around and see where you fit in. It certainly touched mine and helped me gain some new perspectives.
My favorite parts of this book involved times when a few people's souls were mended from past hurts and slights. These were not the prettiest parts of the story, but certainly central to what Jonathon was trying to do and central to what God is always doing, because His entire message to us humans is about reconciliation. Sometimes the right thing to do is the toughest thing to do. The writer skillfully portrays some of these crucial moments with sensitivity and heart.
There are also amusing incidents, crazy times, silly people, angry people, vindictive and unforgiving people in this story. A fellowship of Christian believers is like a family. You will always have a wide variety of members like this. They are part of this story and crucial to the plot. This is certainly a memoriable book.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a complimentary review copy of this book from CKN Christian Publishing on behalf of the author. I was not required to write a review, positive or otherwise. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."
At the critical point in the effort to revive the struggling church, this resourceful, outside-the-box thinking pastor seeks an especially qualified preacher to deliver a sermon addressing the cancerous, still festering, issues which began the church's decline toward irrelevance.
Neither preachy nor adrip with tired cliches or Christianese this thoroughly Christian story does, nevertheless, touch on some important matters in a compelling, inspirational way. For example, Jonathan's pastoral approach with the unbelieving intern was, I felt, natural and instructive for anyone seeking to reach the unsaved because simple patient exposure to the things of Christ is far more effective than is urgent pushiness.
Honor God and love His people. That's the overarching message of this book less the many well conceived details fleshing out its heartwarmingly satisfying tale. I much enjoyed the message of this little book. The few toe stubs I encountered truly aren't worth mentioning, so they won't be.
