  • - THIS IS INCREDIBLE.
  • 00:03:37.270 --> 00:03:39.290
  • - ARE YOU STILL HAVING A HARD TIME BELIEVING
  • 00:03:40.010 --> 00:03:41.110
  • THIS IS REAL?
  • 00:03:41.130 --> 00:03:42.210
  • - WHY DID YOU BRING ME HERE?
  • 00:03:42.230 --> 00:03:44.030
  • - THERE'S NO EASY ANSWER THAT WILL TAKE YOUR PAIN AWAY.
  • 00:03:44.050 --> 00:03:46.190
  • - WHERE WERE YOU WHEN I NEEDED YOU?
  • 00:03:46.210 --> 00:03:48.190
  • - I NEVER LEFT YOU.
  • 00:03:48.210 --> 00:03:49.270
  • I NEVER LEFT MISSY.
  • 00:03:49.290 --> 00:03:51.130

  • YOU WANT ME TO FORGIVE HIM.
  • 00:03:54.240 --> 00:03:56.040
  • I WANT HIM TO HURT LIKE HE HURT ME.
  • 00:03:56.060 --> 00:03:59.260
  • - YOU WANT THE PROMISE OF A PAIN FREE LIFE.
  • 00:03:59.280 --> 00:04:02.080
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:04:02.100 --> 00:04:03.110
  • - THERE ISN'T ONE.
  • 00:04:03.130 --> 00:04:04.220
  • 00:04:04.240 --> 00:04:06.020
  • - YOU CAN DO THIS.
  • 00:04:06.040 --> 00:04:07.020
  • - I CAN'T.
  • 00:04:07.040 --> 00:04:07.250
  • - ON YOUR OWN YOU CAN'T.
  • 00:04:07.270 --> 00:04:09.230
  • - THIS IS YOUR FLYING LESSON.
  • 00:04:09.250 --> 00:04:11.120
  • 00:04:11.140 --> 00:04:17.130
  • 00:04:17.130 --> 00:04:24.280
  • - I BELIEVE YOU.
  • 00:04:25.000 --> 00:04:26.290
  • KEEP YOUR EYES ON ME ...
  • 00:04:27.010 --> 00:04:31.090
  • KEEP YOUR EYES ON ME ...
  • 00:04:31.110 --> 00:04:35.240
  • 00:04:35.260 --> 00:04:47.240
  • 00:04:47.240 --> 00:04:55.130
  • - THE SHACK AND MOST OF MY WRITING IS TRYING TO
  • 00:04:55.150 --> 00:04:59.030
  • REINTERPRET THEOLOGIANS SO THAT WHAT THEY'RE
  • 00:04:59.050 --> 00:05:02.190
  • SAYING IS ACCESSIBLE TO THE REST OF US.
  • 00:05:02.210 --> 00:05:05.290
  • THREE OF THE MAJOR THEMES YOU'RE GOING TO HEAR
  • 00:05:06.010 --> 00:05:08.140
  • REPEATEDLY IS THAT GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME, THAT
  • 00:05:08.160 --> 00:05:14.040
  • GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:05:14.060 --> 00:05:17.080
  • AND WE'RE GOING TO HEAR THAT GOD IS A RELATIONAL
  • 00:05:17.100 --> 00:05:20.140
  • BEING, AND THEREFORE WE WHO ARE MADE IN THE IMAGE
  • 00:05:20.160 --> 00:05:23.210
  • OF GOD, RELATIONSHIP IS AT THE CENTER OF
  • 00:05:23.230 --> 00:05:26.270
  • OUR TRANSFORMATION.
  • 00:05:26.290 --> 00:05:29.000
  • WE'RE DESIGNED TO BE RELATIONAL BEINGS, AND
  • 00:05:29.020 --> 00:05:31.090
  • THIS GOD WHO IS GOOD IS INVOLVED IN OUR
  • 00:05:31.110 --> 00:05:34.140
  • RELATIONSHIPS AND IN THE DETAILS OF OUR LIVES.
  • 00:05:34.160 --> 00:05:36.220
  • THE THIRD OF THESE THEMES IS THAT THE ONE MATTERS.
  • 00:05:36.240 --> 00:05:43.140
  • THIS IS SOMETHING THAT IS UNIQUE I THINK IN THE
  • 00:05:43.160 --> 00:05:46.210
  • LANDSCAPE OF RELIGIOUS IDEAS, THAT THE
  • 00:05:46.230 --> 00:05:50.050
  • ONE MATTERS.
  • 00:05:50.070 --> 00:05:51.250
  • DO YOU REMEMBER THOSE THREE PARABLES?
  • 00:05:51.270 --> 00:05:54.000
  • THERE'S A WOMAN WHO IS SEEKING A COIN AND
  • 00:05:54.020 --> 00:05:55.220
  • IT'S HER COIN.
  • 00:05:55.240 --> 00:05:57.150
  • AND SHE'S LOST IT INSIDE THE HOUSE, AND SHE
  • 00:05:57.170 --> 00:06:00.120
  • SEARCHES UNTIL SHE FINDS IT, AND THEN THROWS THIS
  • 00:06:00.140 --> 00:06:02.260
  • HUGE CELEBRATION.
  • 00:06:02.280 --> 00:06:05.050
  • ALL THE LANGUAGE ABOUT THE LIGHT THAT SHE
  • 00:06:05.070 --> 00:06:08.070
  • LIGHTS, IT IS ALL LANGUAGE THAT IS USED FOR
  • 00:06:08.090 --> 00:06:09.280
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:06:10.000 --> 00:06:11.140
  • AND THEN THE NEXT PARABLE IS ABOUT THE SHEPHERD WHO
  • 00:06:11.160 --> 00:06:14.090
  • GOES SEARCHING FOR THE ONE.
  • 00:06:14.110 --> 00:06:16.090
  • HE LEAVES THE 99 AND GOES, LOOKS FOR THE ONE.
  • 00:06:16.110 --> 00:06:19.250
  • THE SHEPHERD IS JESUS.
  • 00:06:19.270 --> 00:06:21.250
  • AND THEN IT TALKS ABOUT THE FATHER,
  • 00:06:21.270 --> 00:06:24.080
  • THE FATHER WHO WAITS FOR THE SON TO RETURN AND
  • 00:06:24.100 --> 00:06:28.200
  • ALSO THE INVITATION TO THE RELIGIOUS OLDER
  • 00:06:28.220 --> 00:06:31.260
  • BROTHER TO COME AND JOIN THE CELEBRATION,
  • 00:06:31.280 --> 00:06:35.110
  • A FATHER WHO'S NOT INTERESTED IN SOMEONE'S
  • 00:06:35.130 --> 00:06:38.130
  • CONFESSION BUT RUNS DOWN THE ROAD TO EMBRACE.
  • 00:06:38.150 --> 00:06:44.090
  • AND IN THAT STORY, IT'S THE RELIGIOUS PERSON WHO
  • 00:06:44.110 --> 00:06:47.020
  • HAS THE HARDEST TIME ACCEPTING THE FULL ON
  • 00:06:47.040 --> 00:06:53.000
  • FRIVOLOUS, RELENTLESS, CARELESS GRACE OF GOD.
  • 00:06:53.020 --> 00:06:56.080
  • THIS IS A GOD WHO PURSUES EVERY SINGLE HUMAN BEING,
  • 00:06:56.100 --> 00:07:00.180
  • WHO CLIMBS INTO OUR WORLD AND IGNITES THE THINGS
  • 00:07:00.200 --> 00:07:03.090
  • THAT MATTER TO US SO THAT WE CAN PARTICIPATE, SO
  • 00:07:03.110 --> 00:07:07.080
  • THAT WE CAN BECOME FULLY HUMAN AND FULLY ALIVE.
  • 00:07:07.100 --> 00:07:12.110
  • 00:07:12.130 --> 00:07:22.140
  • 00:07:22.140 --> 00:07:30.020
  • - I OFTEN GET ASKED HOW AUTO BIOGRAPHICAL IS
  • 00:07:30.040 --> 00:07:32.020
  • THE SHACK.
  • 00:07:32.040 --> 00:07:33.230
  • I DON'T THINK A WRITER CAN WRITE MUCH FICTION
  • 00:07:33.250 --> 00:07:35.270
  • WITHOUT PUTTING THEMSELVES IN IT, BUT I'M
  • 00:07:35.290 --> 00:07:38.220
  • WRITING A BOOK, A STORY FOR MY KIDS, AND I'M
  • 00:07:38.240 --> 00:07:40.260
  • WRAPPING UP MY HISTORY IN IT.
  • 00:07:40.280 --> 00:07:42.280
  • I HAD A WRITER FROM NASHVILLE WHO SENT ME AN
  • 00:07:43.000 --> 00:07:47.020
  • E-MAIL SHORTLY AFTER THE SHACK CAME OUT, AND SHE
  • 00:07:47.040 --> 00:07:50.100
  • SAID, YOU KNOW, I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:07:50.120 --> 00:07:51.280
  • NOBODY DID.
  • 00:07:52.000 --> 00:07:53.150
  • I HAVE NO CLUE WHO YOU ARE, BUT MY SENSE IS THAT
  • 00:07:53.170 --> 00:07:56.110
  • MISSY REPRESENTS SOMETHING MURDERED IN YOU
  • 00:07:56.130 --> 00:07:59.180
  • AS A CHILD.
  • 00:07:59.200 --> 00:08:01.130
  • AND MACKENZIE, HE'S YOU AS AN ADULT TRYING TO
  • 00:08:01.150 --> 00:08:05.030
  • FIGURE OUT HOW TO WRAP HIMSELF AROUND THIS LOSS.
  • 00:08:05.050 --> 00:08:07.100
  • SHE NAILED IT.
  • 00:08:07.120 --> 00:08:11.260
  • I'M MACKENZIE. I'M MISSY, AND THAT'S ANOTHER STORY.
  • 00:08:11.280 --> 00:08:16.190
  • I WANT TO READ YOU SOMETHING OUT OF THE FORWARD.
  • 00:08:16.210 --> 00:08:19.190
  • IT COMES EARLY ON IN THE BOOK.
  • 00:08:19.210 --> 00:08:24.230
  • MACK HAS BEEN MARRIED TO NAN FOR JUST MORE THAN 33
  • 00:08:24.250 --> 00:08:28.220
  • MOSTLY HAPPY YEARS.
  • 00:08:28.240 --> 00:08:30.230
  • HE SAYS SHE SAVED HIS LIFE AND PAID A HIGH
  • 00:08:30.250 --> 00:08:33.250
  • PRICE TO DO IT.
  • 00:08:33.270 --> 00:08:35.150
  • FOR SOME REASON BEYOND UNDERSTANDING SHE SEEMS
  • 00:08:35.170 --> 00:08:39.180
  • TO LOVE HIM NOW MORE THAN EVER EVEN THOUGH I GET
  • 00:08:39.200 --> 00:08:42.230
  • THE SENSE THAT HE HURT HER SOMETHING FIERCE IN
  • 00:08:42.250 --> 00:08:46.030
  • THE EARLY YEARS.
  • 00:08:46.050 --> 00:08:48.290
  • I SUPPOSE IT THAT SINCE MOST OF OUR HURTS COMES
  • 00:08:49.010 --> 00:08:50.290
  • THROUGH RELATIONSHIPS SO WILL OUR HEALING.
  • 00:08:51.010 --> 00:08:54.090
  • AND I KNOW THAT GRACE RARELY MAKES SENSE FOR
  • 00:08:54.110 --> 00:08:58.050
  • THOSE LOOKING IN FROM THE OUTSIDE.
  • 00:08:58.070 --> 00:09:01.140
  • 00:09:01.160 --> 00:09:11.150
  • - STORY IS POWERFUL.
  • 00:09:11.170 --> 00:09:14.010
  • WE KNOW THAT.
  • 00:09:14.030 --> 00:09:15.150
  • WE CAN FEEL IT.
  • 00:09:15.170 --> 00:09:17.020
  • I THINK WE HAVE AN AFFINITY FOR STORY
  • 00:09:17.040 --> 00:09:18.160
  • BECAUSE EVERY SINGLE HUMAN BEING IS A STORY.
  • 00:09:18.180 --> 00:09:22.190
  • YOU DON'T JUST HAVE ONE.
  • 00:09:22.210 --> 00:09:23.290
  • YOU ARE ONE.
  • 00:09:24.010 --> 00:09:27.040
  • I THINK THAT'S WHY JESUS LOVED PARABLES, BECAUSE
  • 00:09:27.060 --> 00:09:29.000
  • THEY WERE STORIES.
  • 00:09:29.020 --> 00:09:30.110
  • YOU WOULD REMEMBER THEM.
  • 00:09:30.130 --> 00:09:31.240
  • AND PARABLES ARE TRUE EVEN THOUGH
  • 00:09:31.260 --> 00:09:33.150
  • THEY'RE FICTION.
  • 00:09:33.170 --> 00:09:34.280
  • EVEN JOKES ARE STORIES ESPECIALLY IF THEY'VE GOT
  • 00:09:35.000 --> 00:09:37.220
  • A GREAT TWIST IN THEM.
  • 00:09:37.240 --> 00:09:39.090
  • THIS GUY GETS TO HEAVEN.
  • 00:09:39.110 --> 00:09:41.020
  • PETER WHO SEEMS TO BE THE GUARD OF THE PEARLY GATES
  • 00:09:41.040 --> 00:09:44.130
  • COMES OVER TO TALK TO HIM.
  • 00:09:44.150 --> 00:09:46.050
  • AND THE GUY SAYS, WHAT DO I DO, PETER?
  • 00:09:46.070 --> 00:09:47.290
  • DO I JUST LIKE WALK IN?
  • 00:09:48.010 --> 00:09:49.110
  • PETER SAYS, WELL, IT DEPENDS.
  • 00:09:49.130 --> 00:09:52.230
  • IT DEPENDS ON SOMETHING?
  • 00:09:52.250 --> 00:09:54.140
  • HE SAID, OH, YEAH.
  • 00:09:54.160 --> 00:09:55.220
  • HE SAID, WHAT DOES IT DEPEND ON?
  • 00:09:55.240 --> 00:09:57.000
  • WELL, IT DEPENDS ON HOW MANY POINTS DO YOU HAVE.
  • 00:09:57.020 --> 00:09:59.010
  • WELL, HOW MANY POINTS DO I NEED?
  • 00:09:59.030 --> 00:10:00.220
  • WELL, YOU NEED A 100.
  • 00:10:00.240 --> 00:10:02.110
  • THE GUY THINKS 100, OKAY.
  • 00:10:02.130 --> 00:10:04.160
  • HE SAID, WELL, FOR THE LAST 15 YEARS I'VE BEEN
  • 00:10:04.180 --> 00:10:06.240
  • SATURDAY NIGHTS DOWN AT THE SOUP KITCHEN HELPING
  • 00:10:06.260 --> 00:10:09.130
  • OUT AND WORKING WITH THE POOR.
  • 00:10:09.150 --> 00:10:12.010
  • PETER GOES, OH, YEAH.
  • 00:10:12.030 --> 00:10:13.160
  • I'LL TOTALLY GIVE YOU A POINT FOR THAT.
  • 00:10:13.180 --> 00:10:15.060
  • A POINT?
  • 00:10:15.080 --> 00:10:17.150
  • HE SAYS, OH, YEAH.
  • 00:10:17.170 --> 00:10:18.190
  • TOTALLY WORTH A POINT.
  • 00:10:18.210 --> 00:10:20.030
  • HE SAYS, WELL, I WAS A PASTOR FOR 35 YEARS.
  • 00:10:20.050 --> 00:10:23.010
  • I MEAN, I MARRIED PEOPLE BUT I PREACHED AND I
  • 00:10:23.030 --> 00:10:25.130
  • BURIED PEOPLE.
  • 00:10:25.150 --> 00:10:27.090
  • AND PETER GOES, I DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:10:27.110 --> 00:10:29.020
  • 35 YEARS!
  • 00:10:29.040 --> 00:10:33.010
  • OKAY, I'LL GIVE YOU A POINT FOR THAT.
  • 00:10:33.030 --> 00:10:34.160
  • NOW, THE GUY IS A LITTLE WORRIED.
  • 00:10:34.180 --> 00:10:36.240
  • IT'S LIKE, THAT'S SORT OF MY WHOLE LIFE.
  • 00:10:36.260 --> 00:10:38.230
  • I'VE GOT TWO POINTS.
  • 00:10:38.250 --> 00:10:40.130
  • JUST THEN HE SPOTS ANOTHER FELLA FROM THE
  • 00:10:40.150 --> 00:10:43.010
  • SAME TOWN AS HIM.
  • 00:10:43.030 --> 00:10:44.260
  • NICE GUY.
  • 00:10:44.280 --> 00:10:46.080
  • HE HAS A LITTLE COFFEE SHOP DOWNTOWN.
  • 00:10:46.100 --> 00:10:47.250
  • HE'S A C AND E CHRISTIAN, COMES TO CHURCH ON
  • 00:10:47.270 --> 00:10:49.140
  • CHRISTMAS AND EASTER.
  • 00:10:49.160 --> 00:10:51.280
  • THE GUY WALKS RIGHT PAST HIM AND IN THROUGH THE
  • 00:10:52.000 --> 00:10:55.100
  • PEARLY GATES, AND HE SAYS PETER, ARE YOU TELLING ME
  • 00:10:55.120 --> 00:10:58.150
  • THAT GUY HE'S GOT 100 POINTS?
  • 00:10:58.170 --> 00:11:03.160
  • AND PETER SAYS, OH, NO.
  • 00:11:03.180 --> 00:11:05.140
  • HE JUST DOESN'T PLAY THIS GAME.
  • 00:11:05.160 --> 00:11:08.060
  • YOU SEE, WE LOVE STORY.
  • 00:11:08.080 --> 00:11:10.250
  • AND A STORY LIKE THAT KIND OF PUSHES THE POINT
  • 00:11:10.270 --> 00:11:13.230
  • PAST OUR AS C. S. LEWIS
  • 00:11:13.250 --> 00:11:16.190
  • WOULD CALL THEM OUR WATCHFUL DRAGONS.
  • 00:11:16.210 --> 00:11:18.220
  • A PARABLE HAS A WAY OF CLIMBING INTO OUR HEARTS
  • 00:11:18.240 --> 00:11:21.230
  • IN A WAY THAT SOMETIMES SOMEBODY TELLING US
  • 00:11:21.250 --> 00:11:24.030
  • FACE-TO-FACE DATA AND INFORMATION AND THEOLOGY
  • 00:11:24.050 --> 00:11:27.180
  • AND DOCTRINE JUST DOESN'T DO.
  • 00:11:27.200 --> 00:11:31.050
  • WE HAVE THIS INCLINATION TOWARD CERTAINTY, AND I
  • 00:11:31.070 --> 00:11:34.190
  • THINK THAT'S WHY WE LIKE RELIGION MORE THAN WE
  • 00:11:34.210 --> 00:11:37.100
  • LIKE RELATIONSHIPS.
  • 00:11:37.120 --> 00:11:39.100
  • WE THINK THAT DOUBT AND QUESTIONS ARE SOMEHOW WRONG.
  • 00:11:39.120 --> 00:11:42.120
  • RELATIONSHIP IS FULL OF MYSTERY.
  • 00:11:42.140 --> 00:11:45.110
  • THOSE OF US WHO GREW UP IN A CHURCH LIKE I DID,
  • 00:11:45.130 --> 00:11:47.270
  • WE KNEW IT WAS ABOUT RELATIONSHIP, BUT WE WERE
  • 00:11:47.290 --> 00:11:50.190
  • ACTUALLY THEN GIVEN DOCTRINE AND THEOLOGY.
  • 00:11:50.210 --> 00:11:52.150
  • AND WE KNEW THERE HAD TO BE MORE.
  • 00:11:52.170 --> 00:11:57.100
  • THERE HAD TO BE MORE THAN JUST A LIST OF THINGS TO
  • 00:11:57.120 --> 00:12:00.050
  • DO AND NOT DO.
  • 00:12:00.070 --> 00:12:02.290
  • THIS IS THE VALUE OF STORY.
  • 00:12:03.010 --> 00:12:04.150
  • WE NO LONGER CONSIDER SOMEONE AS A CATEGORY,
  • 00:12:04.170 --> 00:12:06.140
  • BELIEVER OR UNBELIEVER.
  • 00:12:06.160 --> 00:12:08.200
  • ALL OF US ARE MOVING IN TERMS OF OUR RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:12:08.220 --> 00:12:14.260
  • WITH GOD, WITH OURSELVES, WITH OUR FAMILIES, WITH
  • 00:12:14.280 --> 00:12:19.100
  • OUR COMMUNITY, WITH OUR ENEMIES, AND WHEN WE
  • 00:12:19.120 --> 00:12:21.030
  • ENTER INTO THE STORY OF ANOTHER HUMAN BEING OR
  • 00:12:21.050 --> 00:12:23.110
  • THE STORY OF GOD'S ACTIVITY EVEN IN OUR
  • 00:12:23.130 --> 00:12:25.250
  • OWN LIVES WE ENTER SOMETHING GRANDER,
  • 00:12:25.270 --> 00:12:29.050
  • SOMETHING MORE ELEGANT, SOMETHING THAT WE'VE BEEN
  • 00:12:29.070 --> 00:12:31.020
  • LONGING FOR.
  • 00:12:31.040 --> 00:12:32.250
  • THIS IS ABOUT RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:12:32.270 --> 00:12:34.100
  • THIS IS ABOUT STORY.
  • 00:12:34.120 --> 00:12:36.270
  • 00:12:36.290 --> 00:12:48.210
  • 00:12:48.210 --> 00:12:56.080
  • - RELATIONSHIP IS AT THE CENTER OF EVERYTHING.
  • 00:12:56.100 --> 00:12:58.170
  • IT'S ESTIMATED IN THIS WORLD RIGHT NOW THAT 75%
  • 00:12:58.190 --> 00:13:02.170
  • OF THE ENTIRE POPULATION OF THE HUMAN RACE HAVE
  • 00:13:02.190 --> 00:13:07.120
  • EXPERIENCED EITHER DIRECT BETRAYAL LOSS TRAUMA OR
  • 00:13:07.140 --> 00:13:16.260
  • ACCIDENTAL LOSS TRAUMA, AND ALMOST ALL OF OUR
  • 00:13:16.280 --> 00:13:18.280
  • LOSSES CENTER AROUND RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:13:19.000 --> 00:13:21.070
  • GOD IS A RELATIONAL BEING.
  • 00:13:21.090 --> 00:13:22.260
  • WHY DOES THAT MATTER?
  • 00:13:22.280 --> 00:13:24.160
  • IT MEANS THAT GOD HAS NEVER BEEN ALONE, AND
  • 00:13:24.180 --> 00:13:26.220
  • WE'RE MADE IN THE IMAGE OF GOD, AND THAT MEANS WE
  • 00:13:26.240 --> 00:13:29.180
  • HAVE NEVER BEEN ALONE.
  • 00:13:29.200 --> 00:13:31.270
  • IN FACT, LONELINESS AS OPPOSED TO SOLITUDE WHICH
  • 00:13:31.290 --> 00:13:36.080
  • IS A VERY POSITIVE THING, THAT'S TAKING A BREAK TO THINK
  • 00:13:36.100 --> 00:13:40.010
  • ABOUT OUR WORLD, OURSELVES, OUR FAMILY,
  • 00:13:40.030 --> 00:13:44.030
  • OTHERS. SOLITUDE HAS A PLACE.
  • 00:13:44.050 --> 00:13:46.030
  • IT'S A PLACE OF REST.
  • 00:13:46.050 --> 00:13:47.130
  • IT'S A PLACE OF RECHARGING, A PLACE OF
  • 00:13:47.150 --> 00:13:49.240
  • ENLIGHTENMENT IN THE SENSE THAT THE HOLY
  • 00:13:49.260 --> 00:13:52.290
  • SPIRIT TEACHES US IN THE QUIET.
  • 00:13:53.010 --> 00:13:56.060
  • THAT'S NOT WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:13:56.080 --> 00:13:57.190
  • I'M TALKING ABOUT LONELINESS, THE SENSE
  • 00:13:57.210 --> 00:14:00.120
  • THAT NOBODY CARES AND THAT NOBODY THINKS
  • 00:14:00.140 --> 00:14:04.050
  • THAT I MATTER.
  • 00:14:04.070 --> 00:14:06.130
  • LONELINESS THAT I AM ALONE.
  • 00:14:06.150 --> 00:14:07.260
  • THE TRUTH IS YOU'VE NEVER BEEN ALONE.
  • 00:14:07.280 --> 00:14:10.150
  • GOD HAS NEVER BEEN ALONE.
  • 00:14:10.170 --> 00:14:13.080
  • GOD HAS NEVER DONE ANYTHING ALONE.
  • 00:14:13.100 --> 00:14:16.130
  • THIS IS THE BEAUTY OF THE TRINITY, THAT THERE IS A
  • 00:14:16.150 --> 00:14:20.000
  • RELATIONSHIP THAT HAS ALWAYS EXISTED BETWEEN
  • 00:14:20.020 --> 00:14:23.250
  • THREE, AND NONE OF THEM HAS EVER BEEN ALONE.
  • 00:14:23.270 --> 00:14:27.000
  • BUT NONE OF THEM HAS EVER BEEN DIMINISHED OR
  • 00:14:27.020 --> 00:14:29.240
  • ABSORBED EITHER.
  • 00:14:29.260 --> 00:14:31.130
  • THAT'S THE BEAUTY.
  • 00:14:31.150 --> 00:14:32.260
  • THIS IS A GREAT DANCE OF MUTUALITY, AND WE'RE MADE
  • 00:14:32.280 --> 00:14:37.000
  • IN THE IMAGE AND NATURE AND LIKENESS OF GOD.
  • 00:14:37.020 --> 00:14:39.190
  • AND WE'RE NOT ALONE.
  • 00:14:39.210 --> 00:14:41.290
  • THE FIRST NOT GOOD THAT YOU WILL READ IN
  • 00:14:42.010 --> 00:14:44.160
  • SCRIPTURE IS THAT ADAM BELIEVED HE WAS ALONE.
  • 00:14:44.180 --> 00:14:49.160
  • HE'D NEVER BEEN ALONE.
  • 00:14:49.180 --> 00:14:51.240
  • HE WASN'T CREATED ALONE.
  • 00:14:51.260 --> 00:14:53.180
  • HE WAS SURROUNDED INSIDE THE LOVE OF THE FATHER,
  • 00:14:53.200 --> 00:14:57.000
  • SON AND HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:14:57.020 --> 00:14:59.020
  • BUT THAT'S THE FIRST NOT GOOD.
  • 00:14:59.040 --> 00:15:01.040
  • AND ANYTHING THAT IS NOT GOOD CANNOT ORIGINATE IN
  • 00:15:01.060 --> 00:15:04.010
  • GOD, SO ONE OF THE GREATEST LIES THAT WE
  • 00:15:04.030 --> 00:15:07.230
  • HAVE TO DEAL WITH IS THAT WE'RE ALONE.
  • 00:15:07.250 --> 00:15:10.190
  • MY WHOLE LIFE BECAUSE OF SHAME, BECAUSE OF THE
  • 00:15:10.210 --> 00:15:12.150
  • THINGS THAT I'VE BEEN THROUGH IT DROVE ME
  • 00:15:12.170 --> 00:15:14.200
  • TOWARD ISOLATION.
  • 00:15:14.220 --> 00:15:16.170
  • EVEN IN THE MODERN WORLD RIGHT NOW, WE'VE BEGUN TO
  • 00:15:16.190 --> 00:15:19.020
  • UNDERSTAND THAT ADDICTION IS EMPOWERED
  • 00:15:19.040 --> 00:15:22.190
  • BY ISOLATION.
  • 00:15:22.210 --> 00:15:24.200
  • IT'S WITHIN COMMUNITY THAT A PERSON BECOMES
  • 00:15:24.220 --> 00:15:28.160
  • A PERSON.
  • 00:15:28.180 --> 00:15:31.020
  • THIS IS WHY THE IDEA OF A COMMUNITY OF FAITH OR A
  • 00:15:31.040 --> 00:15:33.020
  • COMMUNITY OF FAMILY, A COMMUNITY OF RACE, A
  • 00:15:33.040 --> 00:15:35.220
  • COMMUNITY OF ETHNIC CULTURE, THOSE THINGS
  • 00:15:35.240 --> 00:15:39.100
  • MATTER TO US.
  • 00:15:39.120 --> 00:15:40.220
  • FAMILY MATTERS TO US.
  • 00:15:40.240 --> 00:15:42.060
  • FRIENDSHIP MATTERS TO US.
  • 00:15:42.080 --> 00:15:44.180
  • IT MATTERS DEEPLY BECAUSE WE ARE RELATIONAL BEINGS
  • 00:15:44.200 --> 00:15:47.220
  • MADE IN THE IMAGE OF A GOD WHO IS A
  • 00:15:47.240 --> 00:15:49.090
  • RELATIONAL BEING.
  • 00:15:49.110 --> 00:15:50.260
  • WE DON'T THINK THERE'S ANYTHING DEEPER ABOUT THE
  • 00:15:50.280 --> 00:15:53.190
  • CHARACTER AND NATURE OF GOD THAN RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:15:53.210 --> 00:15:56.040
  • 00:15:56.060 --> 00:16:07.200
  • 00:16:07.200 --> 00:16:15.070
  • - I HAD A BIG MAN COME AND SLIP ME A NOTE AT ONE
  • 00:16:15.090 --> 00:16:18.290
  • OF THE PLACES I WAS SPEAKING, AND HE WAS A
  • 00:16:19.010 --> 00:16:21.090
  • BIG GUY AND HE DOESN'T LOOK AT ME AND HE GIVES
  • 00:16:21.110 --> 00:16:23.080
  • ME A HUG ON THE SIDE, SLIPS ME THIS NOTE AND LEAVES.
  • 00:16:23.100 --> 00:16:25.200
  • AND I DON'T REMEMBER IT UNTIL THE NEXT DAY AND I
  • 00:16:25.220 --> 00:16:27.280
  • PULLED IT OUT OF MY POCKET AND I READ IT.
  • 00:16:28.000 --> 00:16:29.110
  • ON ONE SIDE ARE TWO PAGES OF ALL THE REASONS THAT
  • 00:16:29.130 --> 00:16:33.190
  • THE SHACK IS HERESY, BUT ON THE OTHER SIDE IS A
  • 00:16:33.210 --> 00:16:36.210
  • HANDWRITTEN NOTE.
  • 00:16:36.230 --> 00:16:38.070
  • AND HE SAYS, PAUL, I DIDN'T COME HERE TONIGHT
  • 00:16:38.090 --> 00:16:43.120
  • EXPECTING TO RUN INTO THE LOVE OF GOD.
  • 00:16:43.140 --> 00:16:46.230
  • I CAME HERE TO WARN GOD'S PEOPLE ABOUT THE WOLF IN
  • 00:16:46.250 --> 00:16:50.160
  • SHEEP'S CLOTHING.
  • 00:16:50.180 --> 00:16:52.110
  • I NEED SOME HELP.
  • 00:16:52.130 --> 00:16:54.180
  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE LOVE OF GOD IS.
  • 00:16:54.200 --> 00:16:57.000
  • I'VE BEEN IN THE MINISTRY FOR 42 YEARS, AND I DON'T
  • 00:16:57.020 --> 00:17:00.100
  • KNOW WHAT JOHN 17 IS TALKING ABOUT WHEN IT
  • 00:17:00.120 --> 00:17:04.130
  • REFERS TO THE LOVE OF GOD.
  • 00:17:04.150 --> 00:17:07.080
  • THAT'S THE SITUATION A LOT OF US ARE IN.
  • 00:17:07.100 --> 00:17:09.090
  • WHEN YOU WRITE A BOOK, YOU NEVER KNOW HOW IT'S
  • 00:17:09.110 --> 00:17:12.000
  • GOING TO IMPACT MY KIDS, AND THEN HOW IT SPILLED
  • 00:17:12.020 --> 00:17:15.000
  • OVER, BUT I MADE A LITTLE TURN OF PHRASE THAT
  • 00:17:15.020 --> 00:17:17.230
  • BECAME REALLY SIGNIFICANT.
  • 00:17:17.250 --> 00:17:20.270
  • WE'VE ALL HEARD THAT WELL, GOD LOVES YOU.
  • 00:17:20.290 --> 00:17:23.010
  • BUT IT'S KIND OF LIKE WELL, GOD LOVES EVERYONE,
  • 00:17:23.030 --> 00:17:27.100
  • AND I CHANGED IT.
  • 00:17:27.120 --> 00:17:29.080
  • I MOVED IT FROM THE SUBJECT GOD WHO LOVES TO
  • 00:17:29.100 --> 00:17:33.100
  • THE OBJECT YOU, AND I TURNED A PHRASE AND IT
  • 00:17:33.120 --> 00:17:37.150
  • CAME OUT I'M ESPECIALLY FOND OF YOU.
  • 00:17:37.170 --> 00:17:41.240
  • THAT WAS A GAME CHANGER BECAUSE WE KNOW GOD LOVES
  • 00:17:41.260 --> 00:17:46.050
  • US, BUT WE THINK WE'RE ONE OF A MASSIVE
  • 00:17:46.070 --> 00:17:49.060
  • BILLIONS OF PEOPLE.
  • 00:17:49.080 --> 00:17:51.110
  • THE ONE MATTERS.
  • 00:17:51.130 --> 00:17:53.050
  • HE'LL LEAVE THE 99 FOR THE ONE, AND YOU'RE THE ONE.
  • 00:17:53.070 --> 00:17:56.010
  • I'M THE ONE.
  • 00:17:56.030 --> 00:17:57.220
  • PAPA'S ESPECIALLY FOND OF ME, AND PAPA'S ESPECIALLY
  • 00:17:57.240 --> 00:18:03.190
  • FOND OF YOU.
  • 00:18:03.210 --> 00:18:06.260
  • 00:18:06.280 --> 00:18:18.280
  • 00:18:18.280 --> 00:18:26.160
  • - I HAVE A FRIEND -- I HAVE A LOT OF FRIENDS,
  • 00:18:26.180 --> 00:18:29.090
  • BUT I DIDN'T USED TO.
  • 00:18:29.110 --> 00:18:30.220
  • BUT I HAVE MORE FRIENDS NOW AS I'VE ALLOWED
  • 00:18:30.240 --> 00:18:33.060
  • PEOPLE INTO MY WORLD, AS I'VE MOVED AWAY FROM
  • 00:18:33.080 --> 00:18:36.080
  • ISOLATION, AND I HAVE A FRIEND NAMED SCOTT, AND
  • 00:18:36.100 --> 00:18:39.280
  • SCOTT IS THE FIRST MAN IN MY LIFE WHO TOLD ME, I
  • 00:18:40.000 --> 00:18:44.130
  • DON'T CARE WHAT A MESS YOU MAKE OF YOUR WORLD,
  • 00:18:44.150 --> 00:18:47.090
  • I'M NOT LEAVING.
  • 00:18:47.110 --> 00:18:48.250
  • THAT WAS INCREDIBLY POWERFUL FOR ME TO HAVE A
  • 00:18:48.270 --> 00:18:51.260
  • MAN SAY IN MY LIFE I'M NOT LEAVING.
  • 00:18:51.280 --> 00:18:55.280
  • I HAD NEVER EXPERIENCED THAT BEFORE, AND HE WILL
  • 00:18:56.000 --> 00:18:58.280
  • ALWAYS HAVE THAT SPECIAL PLACE OF BEING THE FIRST
  • 00:18:59.000 --> 00:19:03.110
  • PERSON THAT TOLD ME THAT I WOULD NEVER BE ALONE.
  • 00:19:03.130 --> 00:19:06.140
  • I'VE COME TO UNDERSTAND THAT I'VE NEVER BEEN
  • 00:19:06.160 --> 00:19:08.060
  • ALONE PERIOD, THAT ANY SENSE OF BEING ALONE WAS A LIE.
  • 00:19:08.080 --> 00:19:13.220
  • I JUST HAD TO LEARN TO TAKE THE RISK OF TRUSTING
  • 00:19:13.240 --> 00:19:17.270
  • THAT I WASN'T ALONE.
  • 00:19:17.290 --> 00:19:19.200
  • AND THEN AS I'VE DONE THAT AND OPENED UP MY
  • 00:19:19.220 --> 00:19:21.120
  • WORLD, I FOUND THAT I WAS SWARMED INSIDE A
  • 00:19:21.140 --> 00:19:24.120
  • COMMUNITY OF RELATIONSHIPS.
  • 00:19:24.140 --> 00:19:26.230
  • WE GET HURT BY RELATIONSHIPS, NO DOUBT
  • 00:19:26.250 --> 00:19:29.130
  • ABOUT IT, AND IT'S KIND OF A BUMMER THAT OUR
  • 00:19:29.150 --> 00:19:32.120
  • HEALING IS GOING TO COME THROUGH RELATIONSHIPS.
  • 00:19:32.140 --> 00:19:34.050
  • WE'D RATHER THAT GOD HEAL US WITHOUT ANYBODY ELSE
  • 00:19:34.070 --> 00:19:36.160
  • FINDING OUT ABOUT IT, BUT THE DYNAMIC OF
  • 00:19:36.180 --> 00:19:39.120
  • RELATIONSHIP BECOMES THE CRUCIBLE
  • 00:19:39.140 --> 00:19:41.050
  • FOR TRANSFORMATION.
  • 00:19:41.070 --> 00:19:42.170
  • THIS IS WHERE WE'RE GOING TO CHANGE, AND I'M
  • 00:19:42.190 --> 00:19:44.200
  • WELCOMING YOU INTO THE WORLD OF THE SHACK.

  • AND SARAYU.
  • 00:19:58.250 --> 00:20:01.060
  • WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF THE SHACK.
  • 00:20:01.080 --> 00:20:05.080
  • SO MOST OF US HURT COMES THROUGH RELATIONSHIPS,
  • 00:20:05.100 --> 00:20:12.170
  • AND MOST OF OUR HEALING WILL ALSO COME
  • 00:20:12.190 --> 00:20:15.140
  • THROUGH RELATIONSHIPS.
  • 00:20:15.160 --> 00:20:18.100
  • WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY IN EACH EPISODE TO STEP BACK
  • 00:20:18.120 --> 00:20:23.150
  • A LITTLE BIT.
  • 00:20:23.170 --> 00:20:25.150
  • WE NEED TO DO THIS.
  • 00:20:25.170 --> 00:20:27.120
  • I KNOW THE WORLD IS SCREAMING AT YOU
  • 00:20:27.140 --> 00:20:29.200
  • FROM ALL DIRECTIONS.
  • 00:20:29.220 --> 00:20:30.250
  • THERE'S AGENDAS.
  • 00:20:30.270 --> 00:20:32.030
  • THERE'S ALL THIS ACTIVITY AND DEMANDS ON YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:20:32.050 --> 00:20:36.150
  • AND WE NEED TO STEP BACK AND THINK ABOUT WHO WE
  • 00:20:36.170 --> 00:20:38.270
  • ARE AND WHO GOD IS TO US AND WHAT MATTERS TO US.
  • 00:20:38.290 --> 00:20:45.040
  • THINK ABOUT THE THREE THINGS THAT ARE MOST
  • 00:20:45.060 --> 00:20:47.210
  • IMPORTANT TO YOU IN YOUR LIFE AND HOW YOU ARE
  • 00:20:47.230 --> 00:20:50.210
  • FEEDING THOSE OR GIVING SPACE FOR THEM.
  • 00:20:50.230 --> 00:20:57.220
  • RELATIONSHIPS ARE AT THE CENTER OF EVERYTHING, AND
  • 00:20:57.240 --> 00:21:00.110
  • WE'VE ALL BEEN HURT, SO WHO RIGHT NOW IN YOUR
  • 00:21:00.130 --> 00:21:03.260
  • WORLD IS PART OF THAT HURT?
  • 00:21:03.280 --> 00:21:06.010
  • AND BE OPEN.
  • 00:21:06.030 --> 00:21:07.130
  • LISTEN TO THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:21:07.150 --> 00:21:09.070
  • SAY A PRAYER IN THE ONLY WAY YOU KNOW HOW.
  • 00:21:09.090 --> 00:21:12.050
  • A PRAYER IS JUST A CONVERSATION WITH GOD
  • 00:21:12.070 --> 00:21:14.020
  • ANYWAY, AND JUST SAY, HELP.
  • 00:21:14.040 --> 00:21:17.060
  • WHAT DO I DO NOW?
  • 00:21:17.080 --> 00:21:18.260
  • WHAT'S NEXT?
  • 00:21:18.280 --> 00:21:20.040
  • AND LISTEN FOR THE NUDGE, THE IDEA, THE THOUGHT.
  • 00:21:20.060 --> 00:21:22.170
  • THAT'S WHAT I'M GOING TO LEAVE YOU WITH THIS FIRST
  • 00:21:22.190 --> 00:21:25.240
  • EPISODE, AND WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT THIS AND A
  • 00:21:25.260 --> 00:21:28.180
  • LOT OF OTHER THINGS OVER THE EPISODES TO COME.

  • 00:21:40.040 --> 00:21:53.150
  • 00:21:53.150 --> 00:22:06.170
  • 00:22:06.170 --> 00:22:13.050
