About this title


Anyone who has ever asked, 'Where are you God?' knows what it means to search in vain for God's presence, power, and guidance. Can God be found? Can God be trusted? Is God even real?

Blackbird Singing in the Dead of Night invites the reader into a pastor's conversations with a Silent God. Imagine a pastor, plagued by doubts, who's willing to invite spiritual seekers and skeptics into his private struggles of faith; who avoids pat answers while wrestling with questions about God, identity, purpose, and vocation; who experiences what seems like the silence of heaven but, instead of giving up, plunges into an experiment that reawakens his relationship with God and clarifies his life direction.

The religion/spirituality sections of bookstores are lined with 'sure fire' formulas for knowing God; but, as many of us can attest, relationship with God defies foolproof steps and easy answers. What sets this book apart is the way it folds the elements of memoir into an actual experiment in spirituality, offering a realistic, yet hopeful alternative for those who have experienced disappointment in their pursuit of God. Sometimes raw, always honest, and ultimately hopeful, Blackbird Singing in the Dead of Night shows that often times, the journey is the destination in disguise.

From the Author:

I'm passionate about serving people who want to lead, love, and live well. I especially love working with those who've learned from experience that leading, loving, and living well is easier said than done. The idea is irresistible. The reality proves elusive, indeed.

I conceived this book, not only to capture my experience during a transformative time of my life, but also to invite others into deepened reflection about their own life and relationship with God. I encourage you to read the book with your own personal interests in mind, flagging words and phrases that strike a responsive chord. I also encourage you to pause between chapters and ask: What thoughts, feelings, wants or actions does this chapter evoke in me?

Some will decide to read the book straight through. Others will prefer to read one chapter per day, turning their reading experience into a forty-day process of personal development. Some may even decide to give my experiment with the words of Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew a try for themselves. Reading groups will find much to discuss over the course of this book. A set of questions has been provide at the end for personal use or group conversation.

I wish you all the best!
