the shack..

is a good book... I'm not quite through reading it, but today I read this and thought it was so good!! At this point in the story God (as portrayed by a 'large beaming African American woman' who goes by Papa)  is talking to a man named Mack and Papa says:

"All I want from you is to trust me with what little you can, and grow in loving people around you with the same love I share with you. It's not your job to change them, or to convince them. You are free to love without an agenda."
