Rob Strong knows how to stop a conversation in its tracks. Being a pastor in Massachusetts--"the least churched state in the USA"--can certainly raise eyebrows and halt conversations, but Rob never lets his faith bar him from doing what matters most: building sincere relationships with people as, together, they question and explore the nature of The Big Guy Upstairs.
Here he shares how approachable, interactive, and, above all, relevant God can be our lives, without any of the trappings of religion or "Christianese" that make many of us suspicious. Filled with his inimitable brand of wit and humor, Strong offers a fresh take on:
The importance of understanding our humanity and our purpose in lifeDisagreeing and still respecting the perspective of othersDiversity in life and how that means different things to different peopleThe role that God plays into all of these facets of our lives From a "weed" that turned into a delicious peach tree to a miraculous pair of brown shoes, Strong will engage readers with stories and biblical commentary that reveal why their lives are significant-and how God is more intentional, active, and closer than they realize.
