Welcome from the Authors

Welcome to the blog for Red Like Blood, our book that comes out in April, 2011. We wrote the book because of something we believe to be absolutely true.

We believe grace is the most powerful catalyst for change the world has ever known.

We imagine grace as more like a liquid than a solid, meaning that it flows from the heart of God into the lives of people. Being a liquid means grace can only penetrate through the cracks of brokenness — but once it gets in there is no telling how far or how deep it will go.

We think grace is red, too, because all grace can be traced back to the cross of Jesus Christ. So if it strikes you as maybe true that grace pouring over brokenness really does flow red like blood, then you’re at the right place.

All our posts here are connected to the themes in our book, so if you like the posts then you will love the book because, in all honesty, we probably used up our best stuff in the book.

    Hello
    Bob & Joe -

    I’m reaching out to you
    today in hopes of meeting the needs of some specific children in your church’s
    community.

    The problem we, Ashley
    Furniture HomeStore, have is that we don’t know the names and stories of kids
    in your congregation, and in your local community, who are in need of their own
    bed.

    This is where you and your
    congregation come in. Perhaps you can see a connection with the following
    program and “confrontations with grace.”

    We recently created a
    program called “A Hope
    to Dream” that provides free twin beds for children who otherwise do
    not have one. We are asking you to consider creating a post in your blog about
    any one of a handful of topics where a mention and a link to this program would
    be appropriate. The topic could be, for example, about the last verses of
    Matthew 10 and how “giving a cup of water” to a child can come in
    many forms, or about being the hands and feet of Christ. No matter which angle
    you choose, this post will offer your readers the opportunity to nominate a
    child for a bed.

    Here is the recommended link
    information about “A Hope to Dream.” The link to the nomination form
    is located on this page:

    Title: Beds for Kids
    Description: Nominate a child to receive a free
    bed.
    URL: http://www.ashleyfurniturehomestore.com/events/ahopetodream.html

    Not all nominated children
    will receive a bed, but no children will have the opportunity to receive their
    own bed unless they are nominated. We greatly appreciate your consideration of
    our request that will not only bless each child in the program, but also bless
    those in your church who helped make it happen.

    Please feel free to reach
    out to me if you have any questions.

    Sincerely,
    Michael Herman
    for Ashley Furniture
