Normal is Boring

pogoheader

So much of life is aimed at maintaing status quo. We have to have certain jobs to make certain amounts of money. We go to great lengths to maintain equilibrium in our relationships and lives.

What happens if we begin living life differently? What if we begin living life Recklessly? This BLOG will be for stories of the Reckless, both those who are living Reckless lives and my thoughts on how to live Recklessly. Full disclosure, this is in advance of my next book, Completely Reckless┬áthat will be released in February of 2012. But this is a conversation I want to start, and a challenge that needs to be leveled. We as American Christians are living too safely. Mark Batterson, one of my favorite authors said this: “Quit living as if the purpose of life was to arrive safely at death.”

You may have followed my previous attempt at blogging at jacksonopolis.com. I have sold that domain name but am still involved with it. I can’t tell you much yet other than to say there is sweet stuff a comin’.

I would love to hear from you. Do you know people who are living Reckless lives for Christ? Send me their stories! Wonder what I mean by Reckless? Stay tuned….

Blessings,

    I have been a fan of Tim Keller and Mark Batterson for some time. I recommend all their books.Tim Keller’s Ministries of Mercy is a must read along with Mark Batterson’s The Circle Maker I was inertducod to Tim Keller at The Global Summit and Mark Batterson when he spoke at our Prayer Conference.I have almost finished Bonhoeffer and hope to read Unbroken next. These two books appeal to me because I had five brothers in WW2.Thank you for sharing your list.
