From Stories from the Roller Coaster (of a Faith Life): “My dilemma between fear and bravery–brought closer every time another group clambered aboard the ride and shortened the line–was about to come to a head. The next ride would be ours. I knew that we would be slingshot like a rocket into the tunnel through the wall to our right. Past that, well, I didn’t know. The ride was completely enclosed, so I didn’t know how high we would climb or how sharply we would turn or whether or not we would go upside down. I think my not knowing was the main reason that when the roller coaster came to a stop in front of us, I swallowed my fear and stepped through the gate and took my seat. “I have had a number of life events that mirrored my roller coaster experience. Some were first-time experiences that brought great fear and anxiety. Others were familiar because of other similar experiences. Still others I approached with bravado to hide the uncertainty lurking just beneath the surface. Occasionally, I have been able to throw my hands in the air and enjoy the ride. But the roller coaster always seems to be the perfect analogy to a life lived by faith.” Stories from the Roller Coaster (of a Faith Life) is a collection of "faith meets man's plans" recollections. The author's faith steps will inspire, encourage, and challenge you in your own faith walk. His goal in writing this book is to connect you with your own faith stories and to challenge you to pass them along to the next generation.
