Actually I am deaf so I don't get to hear his sermons… but he gives us hearing impaired people copies of the sermons so were not left out completely. This book is an expansion of what he preaches… and I can tell you he practices what he preaches.
Love is the answer!
I have always been what has been termed, "A Questioning Believer" when it comes to defining myself as a Christian, and with anything or anyone that speaks of Christianity.
Having said that, I already knew that I would love this book when I heard that Ed Bacon was writing it. For many years, I have sporadically attended his sermons at All Saints in Pasadena, and I have always heard solid, honest, inspirational advice that resonates with what I truly believe is derived from the all-inclusive teachings of Jesus.
For me, Ed Bacon's suggestions at the end of each chapter are as important as following directions on a map in order to find the right destination without all the drama of getting lost. This book serves as a good map to The High Road; I know I'll be referring to it often and for the rest of my journey.
As I read about Generosity, I got in touch with that aspect of myself and the importance to honor and grow in that area. "The energy of love, of approaching life from your loving self, knows no limits."
As I was reminded of the importance of Stillness, I could hear the Spirit's, the Beloved's, guidance. "Stillness is pivotal in overcoming the sometimes subtle but invariably destructive power that chronic fear has over us."
And when I came to the chapter of Truth, it became very clear that I had to honor my Truth and with the habit of Candor, I had to take a leap of faith and break from my long-standing faith community and find a new one who celebrated ALL people, an inclusive spirit. I was finally able to negotiate the "forces of fear" and claim my "force of love."
The Habits of Play, Forgiveness, Compassion and Community can also play an integral part in our lives and Rev. Bacon writes with humor, authenticity, authority and conviction about integrating each of these 8 Habits into our lives. This is a MUST read book that will guide you into living in love, not fear.
This would make a great gift to family and friends that you love. I have given 3 of them so far.
