Playground chit chat


We have a playground in the middle of our housing that get's very busy. My friends husband Brandon always brings out some sort of religious book he is reading and somehow we always start conversing about it. There are usually 5 or 6 adults and it seems almost like an impromptu Bible study. Yesterday he brought out the book above Mark's Story. The day before we got into a conversation about The Shack. This book tends to be a little controversial and we all had questions about different parts. Brandon turned to me and shrugged his shoulders and said, "this is what The Shack" is all about. You either loved it or hated it and here we are talking about it. If anything it's a great religious conversation starter." I actually liked the book a lot. We did end up with some really good conversation. Same as with Mark's story. Then most things written by these guys are pretty good. I wonder what today will bring.

That is so cool. I really want to start a book club, but don't yet have a window of time to committ too, but the impromtoo kind are the best.
