Our good friend Rev. Jim Wilson has been publishing books for the past decade while being a husband, father, and pastor. He has been teaching on creative expression over four decades. His blog reaches more than four hundred thousand readers and his non-fiction titles have earned broad acclaim. Living as Ambassadors of Relationships is recommended reading from Canada’s Miracle Channel as well as leaders spanning all streams of the Body of Christ. The Holy Spirit and the EndTimes has garnered that same cross-section of endorsement – including Bill Johnson of Bethel Church, Redding – but Jim is grateful for the endorsement from the International Healing Rooms. Kingdom in Pursuit received accolades from Pastor Jim Garlow of Skyline Church, San Diego, the Chairperson of Renewing American Leadership and founder of the Pulpit Freedom Movement.
Jim – James A Wilson to readers – is very pleased with the response to his most recent title, Generation. His first novel has been nominated for the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, the most prestigious literary award in the United Kingdom. But what energizes Jim more than anything else is the privilege of helping others draw from themselves the incarnation of the vision – revelation – planted in them by their Creator, their Abba.
Of the coming Nov 2nd to 3rd Word Guild Writer’s conference, Jim says, “Everyone will learn how to structure their work – whether fiction or non-fiction – building from strength to strength and strong point to escalating strong point as we submit to God’s intention to speak through His servants in an escalating manner.” This conference is for practicing writers, aspiring writers, and any who want to sow into God’s plan to redeem the arts through understanding the craft of writing. We will focus on seeking excellence instead of mere perfection. Jim adds, “If you think you get the difference between excellence and perfection, I can say with confidence you do not…yet…but you will.”

Our good friend Giulio Gabeli shared a thoughtful video message on forgiveness. It reminded me of Dr Gary Chapman’s amazing book The Five Languages of Apology which I talk about in our For Better, For Worse book, and talked about extensively in Uganda and Rwanda. You may remember the five languages, most of which I never practiced before I came to meet Christ personally. I used to defensively make excuses, blame others, and just try to move on without really resolving things. I highly commend Dr. Chapman’s book in which he deals with the five languages: 1) I’m sorry (regret) 2) I was wrong (responsibility) 3) How can I make it up to you? (restitution) 4) I’ll try not to do that again (repentance plan) 5) Will you please forgive me? (request).
Writers plan to gather to equip and encourage one another in their craft.
