The Irresistible Revolution

I received a book a couple of days ago from my dear friend Andy W :: we were chatting on iChat and he mentioned about a chap called Shane Claiborne and the book about his journey called the irresistible revolution :: Andy was so eager for me to read this book (its based in Philadelphia) that he sent me his copy... with some of his personal notes and a word of encouragement in the inside...
"Yes indeed, it won't be long now." God's Decree.

"Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won't be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills. I'll make everything right again for my people Israel:

"They'll rebuild their ruined cities.
They'll plant vineyards and drink good wine.
They'll work their gardens and eat fresh vegetables.
And I'll plant them, plant them on their own land.
They'll never again be uprooted from the land I've given them."
Amos 9:13-15 (The Message)

He then added...
It's coming, the day the poor, the dispossessed, the despised and the rejected regain all that God has in store for them. And YOU will be right in the thick of it.
Wow! Thank you Andy for your kind words of encouragement and for the wonderful book. Will read it on the plane... and yes, I will be in the thick of it... wherever it is!
