When I say I’m going to do something I like to do it, I like to follow through, according to Jesus’ words, “. . . let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.'” About a year ago I said I would send an ebook version of the new book Love Like Jesus to anyone who signed up for an email subscription with GodRunning.com. And I will. That hasn’t changed. It will come in the form of a PDF. But I also said I would publish the Love Like Jesus book in 2018, and that’s changed. My original intention was to self publish but after researching the options further, I’ve decided to go the traditional publishing route. I’ll share more about that as things progress. Meanwhile I hope you’ve enjoyed the content I’ve already shared, from the book, on God Running. For a limited time you can still see the Love Like Jesus book posts by clicking on the Love Like Jesus Book link under “CATEGORIES” in the side bar. When the book is published that option will no longer be available.

Inspiration for this short passage of fiction was drawn mainly from three sources: James Joyce’s famous short story, The Dead, Luke 11:5-13 (which I would encourage you to read before reading this epilogue), and my wife Kathy and my personal experiences caring for her mom during the last nine months of her battle with Lewy Body Dementia.

There was a time when I had earned my mother-in-law’s lasting enmity. And I felt the same about her. It was so bad that

When they heard these things, all in the synagogue were filled with wrath. And they rose up and drove him out of the town and brought him to the brow of the hill on which their town was built, so that they could throw him down the cliff. But passing through their midst, he went away.

(Mark 2:16-17)

Surviving Power

My son Gabe drives a Tesla Model S P85D. His car has different modes he can invoke. One of those modes is called “insane” mode. When he puts his Tesla Model S in insane mode, if he wants to, he can go from 0 to 60 in 3.1 seconds. That’s an insane amount of power. Continue reading
