here's what David Crowder​ had to say about #Hopecasting

"I'm a fan of happiness, and looking for the silver lining seems healthy. But I don't think most people—myself included—find "be happy" or "look for the positive" admonitions to be all that helpful when struggling with pain, sorrow, injustice or stuckness. Oestreicher redefines hope, or better yet, pulls us back to a workable set of postures for receiving hope. This book reminds us that hope is a beautiful gift, an influx of Jesus into our dark and dry souls."

If your desire for a city filled with Hope (and yet in crazy need of it) was piqued - come visit anytime.....you've got a place to stay! (well....I'd need to talk to my wife, but I'm pretty sure it's allowed.)  God bless you brother, and thanks for sharing!

here's your Friday Youth Ministry Nugget. this time, a quick set of practices for preventing conflict with your senior pastor or church leadership before it starts, or for navigating it if it's already present:

how 'about a little excerpt from #Hopecasting today? zombies and hope, deeply connected, ya know.
here's a li'l tasty appetizer from my brand new book, Hopecasting: Finding, Keeping and Sharing the Things Unseen...
