When Rob Strong tells people he's a pastor in Massachusetts--qthe least churched state in the USAq--it sometimes stops them in their tracks, but Strong never lets his faith bar him from doing what matters most: building sincere relationships with people as, together, they question and explore the nature of The Big Guy Upstairs. Here he shares how approachable, interactive, and, above all, relevant God can be in readers' lives, without any of the trappings of religion or qChristianeseq that make many of them suspicious. Filled with his inimitable brand of wit and humor, Strong offers readers a fresh take on the importance of understanding their own humanity and their purpose in life, how to disagree with but still respect the perspectives of others, and the role that God plays in every single facet of their lives--especially when they least expect it. From a qweedq that turned into a delicious peach tree to a miraculous pair of brown shoes, Strong will engage readers with insightful stories and biblical commentary that reveal why their lives are significant--and how God is more intentional, active, and closer than they realize.When I was in high school, my dad helped me purchase and fix up my first caraa 1981, twodoor hatchback, navyblue Plymouth TC3 (a ...
