A few thoughts from Sandy as he is out of WiFi range up in the Alps of Switzerland on his 75th trip.

On each of our backpacking trips I select a book for everyone to read and discuss on the trip. For this trip I have chosen “The Pursuit of God” by A. W. Tozer. One of my all-time favorite books and a book that I used to use as a textbook in the course on prayer that I had taught for many years.
In the first chapter, Tozer writes, “To have found God and still to pursue Him is the soul’s paradox of love.” He goes on to say, “I want to encourage this mighty longing after God. . . . The stiff and wooden quality of our religious lives is a result of our lack of holy desire. Complacency is a deadly foe of all spiritual growth.”
As we travel around Europe, we will “pursue God”. We will seek to eliminate “complacency” in our spiritual life. We will intentionally pursue, even though we have found Him years ago.
What about you? Seek to eliminate “complacency” in your life and stir up this “longing after God.’
