Usually when you don’t see a post from me in a while, it means I am working on something special. In this case, that’s a true assumption. I can’t share what I’m working on yet, but I will say that the particular section I spent this morning on has to do with being naked. I’ve been looking at different ways to express the idea of nakedness as well as looking at phrases and terms that utilize the concept of nakedness, and let me tell you, it is eye opening.
One of the phrases I’ve come across is naked power. Naked power is power over someone or something that is unrelated to an interest in the well-being or continuation of that person or thing. For example, a neutral third party who has no interest in the outcome but has the power to determine that outcome. I find myself extremely glad that God doesn’t exert naked power over us. God is interested in my well-being and concerned with how things turn out for me! That’s something to be thankful for, isn’t it?
Aside from this top secret project, I’m finalizing details for my book release party. I can finally share that my book release party will be on October 25, 2014 at the Westmoreland Drive Church of Christ in Orlando, FL from 3-5 pm. There will be a discussion forum, a panel, food, games and giveaways as well as a book signing. I hope to be able to reveal my super secret project at this time and have a surprise or two for attendees. I’m so excited to celebrate this release with those who are just as excited about the work this book is going to do in young lives. If you want to attend, please let me know. I will be sure to capture it on film so that I can upload it to the Altered before the Altar YouTube channel (more details on the channel to come) so that even my friends far away can join in the celebration.
I am still working on a few more events going into 2015 that I’m really excited about. As soon as the details are finalized, I will be adding them to a Speaking Engagements section of the site so that you all can see where I’ll be and support if you can.
It is my goal going forward to have a new blog post up at least once a week. If there are any questions you have or topics you want me to address, feel free to email me at inquiries [at] aseriousseason [dot] com.
