As we traveled upon this venture of discovery, the character of God began to take hold of our hearts. We found ourselves becoming new and different persons. Church became a place to laugh and cry with others. Church became a launching pad for persons who wanted their lives to make a difference in the world. We had stumbled upon the kind of life that is astoundingly alive and cannot die. The institution we established eventually disappeared, but the life generated in those who gave their selves to this church continues to survive and thrive. Like waves upon a still pond the energy that motivated us has continued to move across the world and will continue until they beat their selves out upon some distant shore.
I hope the reading of this book will jump start the same kind of life in readers that was conceived in us who shared in that experiment.
