Now his twentieth high school reunion looms and he has agreed to play in an exhibition game at the reunion, which is sure to be a wretched joke. And his ex-girlfriend's back in town, newly single.
Twenty years is plenty long enough for a man to mope after what might have been. It's time for John to make himself understand that.
How can you live faithfully when you’re not quite sure where life is taking you? How do you find joy and purpose in the midst of the uncertain, the unfinished, the uneasy? Inspired and comforted by Thomas Merton’s famous prayer that begins, “My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going,” award-winning writer and teacher Greg Garrett looks back at his own recent journey and tells stories from his life that will speak to anyone who has ever felt that sense of being lost along the way. Deeply honest and fully engaging, these reflections on discernment, discipleship, relationship, and vocation will inspire readers to reflect on their own journeys and discover surprising ways that God may be moving in their own lives.
This other way of following Christ is not concerned with an array of commandments or with holding the "right" beliefs. Rather it is centered on loving each other and loving God, what Garrett calls "love where the rubber meets the road, where faith meets the world."
Personal and moving, the book relates Garrett's experiences growing up in--and leaving--a disapproving conservative church and then finding his way back into a different kind of Christian community, one that is communal, missional, just, and loving. Garrett draws on popular culture to illustrate his spiritual points, showing how authentic Christian truth can be found in unlikely places.
