I finished reading Vince Antonucci’s book I Became a Christian and all I got was this Lousy T-shirt with my wife tonight. We read through it out loud together. We laughed. We cried. We talked. It was great.
Vince’s book is unique in that he includes Greek word studies about as often as he uses the word “crap.”
Though Vince is already writing his next book (called Guerilla Lovers), I think the third book he should write should be called “Holy Crap.” It would be about how our lives are a mixture of holiness and crapiness, and sometimes, it’s hard to determine which is which. But if we focus on living for Jesus and loving Him, Jesus can take even the crap of our lives, and use it for good. Maybe as fertilizer to help others grow, or for use in the annual Alaskan Moose Poop Festival (I have just put this on my Bucket List. …Do you think they really drink out of those Moose Poop Mugs?).
I don’t know what Jesus can do with the crap in your life, but if your life is like mine, He’s got a lot to work with.
