I have always loved Easter. On Easter Jesus Christ was raised from the dead and on that same day in 1971 He graciously did the same for me. I was one of those whom Bob Dylan perfectly described in “Like a Rolling Stone” I had “no direction home”.
I nearly stumbled my way into an Easter service that Sunday with the promise of a free dinner afterward. Having neither home nor money at the time actually didn’t bother me as much as it should, but I just figured things would work out. Things did “work out” but only because God had far better plans than I could have ever come up with. On that Easter I finally chose to stop running from Him. The gift of life – real life- eternal life- has led me on the most amazing and astonishing journey for these past 45 years.
This Easter week I would like to give away in E-book format the full version of “Would You Do It For One?”(Nursing Home Ministry for the 21st century) You will be able to get your free download from Amazon.com from Monday through Friday March 20-25.
If you are involved in Nursing Home Ministry or would like to consider getting started this small book offers inspiration as well as practical insights into the work of a nursing home volunteer. The last part of the book includes a seven session training workshop for small groups to work through as they prepare for the challenge and adventure of nursing home ministry.Here is the link.
