It's the end of the world as we know it.....

.....And I feel fine!

Heard that classic REM song on the radio this morning and thought it was wildly appropriate with all the hullabaloo going on over today's 6/6/6 date. Please, people. It's just a date. It's a day to give to God just like every other Tuesday of the year.

But like the song says, I do feel fine and in fact I want to give this blog over to a different "End of..." namely the book I just started reading called End of the Spear by Steve Saint. It goes along with my goal of reading more NF this year and even just two chapters in it's quite captivating. For those unfamiliar with the title or the tale, in 1956 five missionaries were brutally killed in Ecuador by the Waodani, one of the most violent tribes in the world. The families of the missionaries then went to live among this tribe and teach them a peaceful way to live and found reconciliation through God's love. The story might ring a bell to those who have heard of Elisabeth Elliot (wife of murdered missionary Jim Elliot) but this book is told by Steve Saint whose father Nate was also one of the five killed. Let me know if any of you have read the book and also if anyone has seen the movie by the same name (should be out on video soon).
