Dear All of You,
So I'm reading this book called "The Shack" by Wm. Paul Young (I wish I could abbreviate my first name, I've always thought that looked so wacko cool. We'll abbreviate me to Mre. for the purposes of this post so that I won't be consumed with abbreviation jealousy). Anyhow, I am about half way through this here book and it is most interesting. I'm not saying it's for everyone, cause it's probably not. But, I will go so far as to say I'm thoroughly thinking and enjoying thinking! (Now how often can I say that?)
It's a novel about this man who spends the weekend with God. I know, huh. It's not L.D.S., but it is religious in nature (hence; the weekend with God). World religions have been my most favorite subject in college history study. If there was a degree like that available to me, I would earn it, because it's just so darn fascinating! That's kind of the biggest draw of this book to me, reading Wm.'s philosophy in the form of fiction. I just really like learning about all our different forms of worship. Personally, my personal feeling is, and personally: I think God cares a lot more that you honestly develop in your heart a close and loving relationship with Him then He cares about your religious affiliation. I can't back that up in writing, but then I'm not teaching Gospel Doctrine. This is just a blog.
And so far, this man's weekend is making for a good read. I'll let you know how I feel at the last page!
Very truly ruly,
