Paying Attention III: Uncommon God in Our Common World
People are tired, empty, anxious, and stressed. Our hectic, fast-paced modern world filled with convenience and incredible technology, has left most of us asking; "Is this really all there is?" Most of us are drowning in an abundance of both opportunities and material possessions, yet feeling unfulfilled, hollow, and longing for purpose, meaning, and direction. We are searching for what the world cannot give. We try to fill the "God Hole" in our souls with everything but the real thing. We are waiting and wanting to see God move in big, dramatic, and remarkable ways and when that doesn't happen, we assume God is not here, that He is distant, or is only available to others.
Rollie Johnson has an exceptional eye for seeing the holy and sacred in our common, ordinary, and day-to-day lives. Rollie lives with an uncommon appreciation for and connectivity to both Creation (nature) and his Creator (God). Rollie's unique and engaging style of writing will draw you in and help you to see and appreciate that God is all around us. Join him on exceptional adventures in the mountains of the west backpacking or elk hunting, mission trips in Mexico, rock climbing up Devil's Tower, or in the wilderness of the north canoeing or winter camping in 40 below zero temps as he points out the sacred and holy in creation. Rollie will also invite you along on day-to-day encounters with ordinary people who reveal that God is alive and well and living amongst us.
If you are looking to deepen and strengthen your relationship with God, then this is the right book for you. But don't expect the typical preachy, churchy vocabulary, or religious jargon of most faith-based books. This book is real, down-to-earth, honest, and practical. Rollie invites you to go deeper with God by seeing Him everywhere and in our common world.
