The New Normal


“The New Normal”

There are moments in life that change us forever. Whenever someone becomes a Christian, they are completely transformed. We used to number our goodness in deeds, words, and thoughts. But grace unsettles everything. In The New Normal we can study the book of Galatians to examine the reality of this transformation and the new way of living that comes with it. The problem is that we tend to want to keep doing what we’ve always done – we are constantly trying to improve on God’s way. What Paul told the Galatians 2000 years ago is the same message we need to hear today: the Gospel is the new normal.

Excerpt from a sermon at Seacoast Church, Mt. Pleasant, SC

Ever since my bouts with cancer and trying to clear my mind, I run into always trying to figure out what I am going to do next.  What are the plans for me on this earth.  Obviously, having had cancer four times, I apparently am here for a reason, a “new normal,” so to speak.  I think I have figured it out.  Many will think I am crazy (crazier) when I say that I was commissioned by God to put my story in writing to give hope and encouragement to others.  However, this is the case, and as far as I can tell, the writing and marketing of the work has been my “new normal’ thus far.  What is next, only God knows.Life after surviving cancerLife after surviving cancer
