Last night, after the final event of my California tour speaking about My Peace I Give You, I enjoyed dessert with friends at Jerry's Deli. From left: Ben Eshbach, Bill Inglot, Father Jim Melley, Rob and Nikki Shallenberger, and a very happy yours truly.
My Peace readers will recognize Ben Eshbach as is the Sugarplastic musician and songwriter whose reading recommendation of G.K. Chesterton's The Man Who Was Thursday back in 1995 set the wheels turning that began my journey into the Church. Here is a sample of his band's gorgeous music—"Autumn All the Time."
Thanks so much to all the Dawn Patrol readers who prayed for me this summer as I toured the country speaking about healing sexual wounds with the help of the saints. Although I will be doing some more dates in the fall (click here for my itinerary), it was a special joy getting to dedicate three months to touring—reaching hundreds of people at more than two dozen talks in eight states and the District of Columbia. I made some wonderful new friends and got to reconnect with treasured old ones. Truly I feel I have received the hundredfold promised by Jesus in Mark's gospel.
