I’m pre-reading Pete Wilson’s new book Let Hope In as part of a Launch Team that I learned about online. I had previously read his first book, Plan B, with a small group and have meant to read the second, Empty Promises, but never did (it’s currently in my amazon cart). As a semi-frequent reader of Pete’s blog, I was interested in reading this new book. When I signed up for the Launch Team, I’ll admit that I didn’t really know if this book would apply to me right now (and was lured by the words “free T-shirt”!). Once I was actually chosen (it was limited to a certain number of people and more had signed up), I believed that there was a reason why. Now, the more I read it, the more I see that I do need more hope. And I do need it now. But it’s a choice. It’s my choice to change the way I think and act in response to the truth that I know in my head but don’t always take completely to heart: that God loves me no matter what.
I’m looking forward to the rest of the book and seeing how it plays out. Wednesdays are Hope Days (much preferred over hump days) on Pete’s blog the next couple months, featuring exerpts from the book.
