Steve Sjogren’s newest book will help anyone wanting to live a better life.

It would be an especially good gift item for people who don’t go to church or don’t believe in God. They won’t get preached at, but experience the honest wrestling of a guy who went through a set of horrible circumstances and learned to live a better life after dying during gall bladder surgery that went very wrong.

CORRECTION: Scripture isn’t the ultimate self-disclosure of God. Jesus is. But it’s authoritative because it’s the normative revelation of the God we meet in Jesus.

Sometimes I’m asked, “What do you do for outreach when the weather doesn’t cooperate?” It’s not that difficult but it requires a little bit of creativity. Here’s a gimme to help you where you are (unless you’re in Phoenix).

Go out in teams to rake leaves. It’s not that complicated. Needed: Rakes, 55 gall bags, and most importantly some eager beaver people who are willing to get a little grimy.

There’s more to this but you need to go to ServeCoach.com for more details.

It’s amazing how transferable kindness outreach is. To reach out with God’s love in a practical way – to bring the Good News to skeptics – can be pulled off in any culture – even Scandinavia. Go figure.

We gave out hundreds of waffles in Norway. Waffles you ask? In Norway that’s the draw. When a Norwegian gets a waffle they feel incredibly loved!

What’s the “Waffle factor” in your neck of the woods?
