Wild in the Hollow Book Club: an Introductory video
Friends, today is the day you can begin a Wild in the Hollow book club with your friends. Every Friday, I’ll provide a video for two chapters at a time, so if you want to meet every other week, you’ll have conversation starters for 4 chapters at a pop. It seems I’m stretching it out a little too much, but by the time the book is over, I hope you’ll find it was never about the book. I hope you find that all along it was about you and your people knowing what it is you really want and seeking what really satisfies. I hope you find freedom.
Before you get started, I strongly encourage you to buy Wild in the Hollow in bulk from Givington’s, who offers a great price and gives a nice portion to the charity of your choosing.
If you go ahead and watch the video today, it will not spoil your time with your friends. I believe it will give you something good to think about. Better yet, there’s no way to guess how powerful it will be to speak your story and your revelations out loud with your friends. This will be no ordinary Book Club. My videos will – by far – be the most unpolished and unprofessional things you’ve ever seen, and that’s perfectly fine by me (though I’ll try to get better at it.) My aim in creating these isn’t so you’ll be impressed with me but rather so you’ll walk toward freedom together with your friends, unafraid of the broken way, creating the culture of the weak-strong that the power of Christ may rest on you. It’s a most beautiful paradox.
Today we start at the beginning. I introduce Wild in the Hollow to you here and hope you’ll respond by introducing yourselves – even if you’re among old friends. Remember back. Where are you from? Tell us what home means to you.
May I also apologize for the shaky recording? Email subscribers, you may want to click through to the post!
Also this is a late-coming update to the post, but please do listen to Crystal Stine‘s Periscope Book Club on Wild in the Hollow. Here’s her video on the first three Chapters. That girl is seriously blinded by love. She lives to encourage, so just follow her.
