The Romance

I counseled, taught, and preached about an intimate romance with God for many decades. Since 2010 I intended to write a single, concise article that makes this concept more widely accessible. Last fall, a friend's question prompted me to start gathering material for the writing project. But I got stuck on one last question. Then, just before Advent, another friend tipped me off about some material from Christian musician and writer. I bought it and was shocked when his insight resolved that final question. So I finished the article over the holidays and now offer it to you in the link below. The article took 35 years to write - but you can read it in 15 minutes. I wrote it to shave decades off of your journey to the romance. Here are the questions that frame the article:
  1. When did you start thinking about this romance concept?  
  2. What's the big deal about Christmas and Easter?  
  3. What is so valuable about humans that made God condescend so far?  
  4. How can we possibly respond to such a passionate heart as God's?  
  5. What roadmap can I offer others that will guide them into the romance?
