Brennan Manning

We just now found out through a friend at our church in Los Angeles that Brennan Manning, my number one favorite Christian writer, spoke at a recent retreat. Ragamuffin Gospel and Abba's Child changed my life, absolutely. I was excited to hear that his talks at the retreat are online for download. I haven't listened to them yet, but I wanted to put the word out to any other ragamuffins who might be interested in hearing a Seasonal dose of grace.

Go here to listen. You'll get to hear lines like this one:

"Aristotle said I'm a rational animal. I say I'm an angel with an incredible capacity for beer. That's the real Brennan."

PS: Our friend Dave suggested turning the volume way up, as Mr. Manning has gotten pretty feeble of late and mumbles/slurs sometimes.

I heard Brennan Manning speak at Bel Air Pres, and he was amazing! Okay, totally pumped that you guys are up for the blog union! I'm compiling a contact list now, so we can start coordinating dates. We're dying for you guys to get your referral. Ours took 13 weeks, but our blog buddy Samantha is at the 16 week mark. I know so much of it is paperwork, so hopefully SOON, you'll be getting the call. Can't wait!
