Stumbling Into Miracles by Philip Larson https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08FP54W2P/

Now hear about and learn to live a life where miracles abound. Demons are cast out in alleyways on hard concrete outside in Mexico and Pakistan. Thousands have come to Christ in areas with pigs tied to trees and chickens running underfoot and open sewers streaming next to us. He shows up in fancy church buildings in suburban neighborhoods in the United States and the toughest street corners you can imagine in mud and muck and in business conference rooms and offices. He is the Lord of All. We do not control Him. It is our privilege to follow Him wherever He leads, whenever, to all people.

By Grace: Passion for People in Community by Philip Larson https://www.amazon.com/dp/1537729527/

Can I be fulfilled yet not a super Christian and decision maker? Yes! The answer is, Yes!Can I be fulfilled, yet, not winning soul-scalps on the evangelism team? Yes! The resounding answer is, Yes!There is no higher calling in the Kingdom of Christ than to be active in the daily labors of the local congregation. Glamorized pulpit ministry and committee involvement leaves people wondering where they fit. Our congregation models make the public and power ministry the pieces to pursue. The New Testament scribes tell us to make the less comely parts look more glamorous. How do we get it right?Living in the kingdom on a daily basis brings us closer to Christ. Expressing God’s forgiving love to a world full of grief and pain lunges us forward in becoming more like Him. Gracing others with kindness and gentleness prepares a path for those on the fringe of our congregations to follow. As they attempt to peer into the kingdom from a safe distance, they will shuffle closer to the borders of pardon and peace. How do we get it right?Phil Larson takes us on the journey of a couple connected to a local church, but doing effective outreach in the community. Through biblical instruction and insight and their personal story, you will find how to be effective in reaching your neighbors.Come to ChristGrow in ChristStay in ChristBattle the problems and issues that plague Christians in being sensitive and being seeking. This is not about being seeker sensitive.This is about being one who “seeks and saves the lost” as part of Jesus’ ministry to go into the highways and byways and compel with compassion.
