Finding God in the Waves, Finally

"Mike,

Please stop reading all your reviews ❤️ But I know you will read them anyway, haha, so here’s a personal note of thanks. We are very different in many surface-level ways but deep down I feel such a connection to your inner spirit.

“When someone in vulnerability tells you everything they’ve known has fallen apart, the correct response is not to quote scripture, the correct response is not biblical apologetics, the correct response is a hug. The correct response is to say, I love you. They have to encounter an impossible love. It’s the only way the gospel comes to life.”
Mike McHargue

“People grow when they are loved well. If you want to help others heal, love them without an agenda.”
Mike McHargue

“What I've learned to do is be certain that I am uncertain. To revel in the fuzziness of my understanding of the world. And to look with great anticipation toward the next moment I'll figure out that I'm wrong about something. And that lets you get on this trajectory where you just become more and more and more open.”
Mike McHargue
