Today my Pastor and friend, Pete Wilson, releases his first book. I’m proud and excited for him because I believe this is an important message that will resonate with many people and hopefully allow them to get closer to God in their walk of faith. I always thought the book would be timely. I had no idea of how timely.
In the past few days Cross Point staff, church members and thousands of people in our community have lost belongings, their entire homes, and some even loved ones. Suddenly our entire community is thrown into our very own collective “Plan B”. But Plan B is not a book just about dealing with catastrophes; it’s also a conversation about dealing with disappointment in life and reconciling our faith with them.
I struggled with that question this morning as I watched the local news and my heart broke for my friends and neighbors. I asked the same question when my sister delivered her baby several weeks early and as the little guy fought for his life in a hospital in Florida.
what I love about Plan B is its honesty and authenticity. No platitudes. No 5 easy steps to a worry-free life. No gimmicks. I found myself lost in the real-life encounter and finding hope in places I least expected. Trust me, you need to read this book.
Thank you Pete for writing a book we all need to read. Plan B will change you.
How have the Plan Bs in your life surprised you? Sometime Plan B can be better than your best Plan A.
