Dear UnBlog Family,
Well, I awoke today tingling with excitement . . . because today is a momentous one! John’s new book, “Journey to the Veil” is finally now available to the world.
I am humbled that these selected blogs, which have previously been available to just a few, can now come out of obscurity to bless the lives of many, many people. I just wish I could have included all of John’s blogs, and your wonderful and insightful commentary as well. In this book, I have chosen to highlight especially those writings that explain John’s unique understanding of the grace and empowerment of Jesus Christ in our everyday lives. And oh John’s stories . . . they are absolutely riveting!
During the past several months, I have been wrestling with what to do with John’s UnBlog—which was so precious to him. I feel that the time is now right for the UnBlog format to be changed. I am keeping everything intact here as it is presently configured, as a resource for folks who want to read material not included in “Journey to the Veil.” (Others of John’s writings and commentaries can also be found on www.followingthelight.org). However, we will not be formally posting on the UnBlog, at least routinely. Please feel free anytime to comment to me, though, and we can communicate in that way. I would love to hear from you!
For those of you who would like to participate in an active blog with commentary, there are doubtless some good ones to choose from. One blog you may want to check out is found at http://ldsperfectday.blogspot.com . If anyone has other good suggestions, please post them as commentary here.
I deeply love and appreciate all of you so much, and thank you for the joy and sweet support you have been to John, and to us all through this UnBlog experience. I also truly appreciate the tremendous efforts, spiritual wisdom and blessing that Shayne, “Spencer”, Eric, and many others have contributed since John’s passing.
The glorious work of truth still moves onward and upward! These are incredibly important times as we share truth, strengthen our testimonies of Christ and His gospel, and support one another in moving from this telestial to the higher terrestrial state that we will soon call “Home.”
As John would say, “Hurrah for Israel!”
