An Invitation ...
And a Gift ...
Every Bitter Thing is Sweet is my story—one of seeing how God can turn the bitterness of unmet desire into new flavors of joy—but I had you in mind as I wrote it. Personally, I learn through story. Story sneaks in through the back door and teaches me, albeit passively. My hope and prayer is that through the lens of my story, you would find Him—for you—in the pages.
But this is an invitation to invite others in, to scoot up alongside a group of others—ones with whom you’ve been doing this for years, or even perhaps others you’ve just met— and maybe take those cocktail party conversations to a different place. Who knows? You might need to move in close and whisper as you thumb over these pages.
It’s what we all want, isn’t it? Reaching into the life of another—moving beyond the surface—and letting ourselves be a little bare as we do. Finding Him, in an unconventional way, alongside others.
So, enclosed in this guide are suggestions for getting your group together, as well as questions that will help you discover each others' stories and, hopefully, go deep. Together.
