I’ve never really gone along with these things before, but I decided to just go for it this time.
I’ve been tagged by Matt, and here are the rules as they’ve been described to me:
Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more. (No cheating!)
Find Page 123.
Find the first 5 sentences.
Post the next 3 sentences.
Tag 5 people.
OK, let’s see… Nearest book…
OK, that one ended up having a picture on page 123, so there weren’t even 5 sentences. ha ha.
Next closest book… page 123, down 5 sentences…
“But there is another side to it, a side which shows all the signs of the wind and fire, of the bird brooding over the waters and bringing new life. For many, “church” means just the opposite of that negative image. It’s a place of welcome and laughter, of healing and hope, of friends and family and justice and new life.”
