Does anyone else operate on a school-year schedule, and thus feel like September is the beginning of a new year? I have spent the past few weeks setting “goals” for the upcoming school year, which is more or less the same as setting new year’s resolutions in January. For me, those include spiritual, physical, and professional goals.
If any of you are thinking about things that you want to see change in the year ahead, I want to bring your attention to a new book (came out today) by Keri Wyatt Kent, called GodSpace: Embracing the Inconvenient Adventure of Intimacy with God. My review: “We have filled our homes with stuff, our calendars with activities, and our hearts with a desire for more.” Keri Wyatt Kent’s GodSpace invites us to declutter our hearts, our homes, and our calendars in order to make room for the inconvenient wonder of God’s presence. Kent tells stories from her own life and offers practical suggestions on how we can open ourselves up to God’s work in our homes, our communities, and the world. With humor, insight, and concrete examples, Keri Wyatt Kent has written a book that encourages me to make meaningful changes that will enable less space for disappointment and more space for God.
