Fellowship of Saints and Sinners

Fellowship of Saints and Sinners


“Don’t Let My Car Fool You. My Real Treasure Is In Heaven.”

I’ve missed you here at this intersection between life and God!  Last week’s scramble to meet a self-imposed deadline for Grace Sticks meant a cyber fast of sorts, but I’m grateful to be back.

By way of an update to catch us all up, later this month you’ll get some of my musings on human perfection and disability at author Amy Julia Becker’s blog, “Thin Places.”  You’ll also find another installment in our ongoing interview series with influential evangelical women writers. “There’s Power in the Pen” features women writers who last fall appeared on Christianity Today’s “50 Women To Know” list.

Meanwhile, today and tomorrow I’m finishing up the very last chapter of Grace Sticks: “Don’t let my car fool you.  My real treasure is in heaven” consists of meditations on The Way (Jesus) as more than just a heavenly escape route.

So, I’m curious…when was the last time you saw this bumper sticker, and what in that context was the meaning of it?  Got a contribution to share in the way of a related story?  Leave your thoughts or stories below, and they may make it into the book!
