First up in this week’s giveaway is a signed copy of my new book I Am a Church Member. Based on an idea originally taken from this blog, I Am a Church Member discusses the attitudes and responsibilities of church members. I address in detail what congregations should really be focusing on—praying for church leaders, being a functioning member, treasuring church membership, and more.
Six chapters with these titles include study questions to guide the discussion:
- I Will Be a Unifying Church Member
- I Will Not Let the Church Be About My Preferences and Desires
- I Will Pray for My Church Leaders
- I Will Lead My Family to Be Healthy Church Members
- I Will Be a Functioning Member
- I Will Treasure Church Membership as a Gift
Also included is Melissa: A Father’s Lessons from a Daughter’s Suicide by Frank Page, former president of the Southern Baptist Convention. In this book, Frank writes about the spiritual truths and biblical practices he learned and put into action following his daughter’s suicide. Page is hoping his story will help the church address this all-too-real problem.
As I wrote earlier in the week, perhaps a movement will grow from this book. Perhaps lives will be saved because we have a greater awareness and sensitivity to this darkness. Perhaps we will learn to love more deeply. Perhaps we will become more compassionate people. That is still my prayer.
To enter the giveaway, tell us if you could spend one hour with one character of the Bible (other than a person of the Trinity), who you would choose.
The deadline to enter is midnight CDT this Saturday. We will draw one winner from the entries on Monday morning.
