Mega Shift

megashift.jpgNewest book I’m working through is called Mega Shift by James Rutz.

Funny how books show up at certain times for me. This one is no exception. It caught my attention immediately on the book jacket:

The best news since year one…

Rutz makes this observation:

“When I was a kid in Sunday School, I was really impressed that 3,000 people were saved on the Day of Pentecost. Now that happens around the globe every 25 minutes. That adds up fast. By tomorrow, there will be 175,000 more Christians than there are today in 238 nations around the world. At a 2000 Reinhard Bonnke meeting in Lagos, Nigeria, 3,400,000 registered decisions for Christ of the six million that came. Campus Crusade for Christ estimates we’ll see a billion new converts in the next 10 years.

…From our vantage point in Europe and North America, where church membership is going nowhere, these numbers sound fantastical. This is the biggest megashift in history. But as national strongholds of sin are dismantled and pits of misery cleaned up, the true purpose of God for many nations will be revealed. We are in the early stages of a total transformation of our planet.”

This is no pie in the sky, left behind fantasy book. Rutz has some pretty impressive credentials.

I’m having a hard time putting it down.

First frost

We had friends from St. Louis come in on Sunday. I let them park in the garage while I parked in the driveway last night.

When I got up this morning, I had to scrape frost off the windshield.

That technically means it was cold.

My St. Louis friends thought that was funny…
