Last night, Mike and I went to a local mission benefit, The guest speakers were authors and best friends, Ron Hall and Denver Moore. Their best-selling book, Same Kind of Different as Me is an endearing story of an unlikely friendship brought together by a loving wife who saw through the superficial in life to realize, as Denver Moore said last evening, “We’s all God’s people.” Ron Moore unabashedly credited the Lord and his loving ,wife for the miracles that followed. The book is a treasure of freindship and unlikely pairings that only God could have orchestrated.
Mr. Moore and Mr. Hall signed books after the dinner, and I managed to snag a couple of copies. So, in the spirit of bloggy giveaway, I would like to give a signed copy to two of you who would be interested. Offer is good to US and Canadian residents. Two winners will be drawn on Monday, February 9. To enter, leave a comment about any of the following:
1. how you believe differences in backgrounds make good friendships.
2. where God is stirring you to go outside your comfort zone to reach others in love.
3. how you and your best friend met.
I can’t wait to read your comments, and you may enter as many times as you like, but only comments with a story will qualify.
If you have time, come back and listen to this song’s words by Norah Jones. It was part of what Ron Hall quoted as their theme song.
