I’ll be reading today at 2 pm at Edward McKay Bookstore in Winston-Salem.

I’d like to have great turnout both for them and for me. If you live in or near Winston-Salem, NC, please consider dropping in to Edward McKay Bookstore between 2 and 3 pm on Saturday.

I’ll be reading from and selling and signing copies of Better With Friends (Rank Stranger Press, 2009).

Jesus says: “Blessed are the poor, the gentle, those who mourn, those who hunger and thirst for uprightness, the merciful, the pure in heart, the peacemakers, and those who are persecuted in the cause of uprightness” (Matthew 5:3-10). These words offer us a self-portrait of Jesus. Jesus is the Blessed One. And the face of the Blessed One shows poverty, gentleness, grief, hunger, and thirst for uprightness, mercy, purity of heart, a desire to make peace, and the signs of persecution.

The whole message of the Gospel is this: Become like Jesus. We have his self-portrait. When we keep that in front of our eyes, we will soon learn what it means to follow Jesus and become like him.

Emphasis mine.

See, it isn’t complicated.
