That’s the average length of Jesus’ recorded conversations. Jesus changed the world, person by person, 42 seconds at a time, and so can we.
About the Book
What if followers of Jesus were better equipped to live like Jesus, embracing, authentically, every interaction?
42 Seconds helps you to live and speak like Jesus in every conversation throughout your day — at the mailbox, over the fence, and in the grocery store. Taking cues from Jesus’ example, and his own stories, Carl Medearis emboldens you with these simple Kingdom truths so you can share your life in Jesus with others in the most natural ways.
It’s basically impossible to introduce our neighbors and coworkers to Jesus if we’re not kind to them.
Being present for God may be the key to life.
It will stretch your faith.
As believers, his actual presence is in us, which means that we can be the actual presence of Jesus to others.
Check out the following resources to use alongside 42 Seconds with your church, book club, small group, or other gathering.
And, we’d love to hear from you regarding other resources you think would be helpful to you and your group!
