The Shack Series Online

I'm not sure if you're familiar with the book "The Shack" by William Young, but it's an incredibly interesting read. The story is about a man whose daughter was abducted by a notorious serial killer while on a family vacation, which destroyed her father's faith in God. Later, the father (Mack) receives a note asking him to "Meet me at The Shack. Love, Papa" and he does not know what to make of it. "Papa" is what his wife calls God and the shack is the last known location as to where they could trace the killer's tracks. In the days that follow, Mack's curiosity gets the best of him and he travels back to that fated place and spends a few days with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.

The reason I bring it up is because our church is doing their sermon series on the book. While the book is fiction, it covers so many important issues such as your relationship with Christ, the process of grieving, forgiveness, and love. We're in week 2 of the series and so far our lead pastor, Keith, has hit on some pretty powerful points. If you've read it (or even if you haven't), but need to hear some inspirational words on these topics, you can check them out online:
So if God invited you somewhere for the weekend, would you go?
