Wild Goose Chase by Mark Batterson

Most of us have no idea where were going most of the time. Perfect. Celtic Christians had a name for the Holy Spirit, An Geadh-Glas, or the Wild Goose. The name hints at mystery. Much like a wild goose, the Spirit of God cannot be tracked or tamed. An element of danger, an air of unpredictability surround Him. And while the name may sound a little sacrilegious, I cannot think of a better description of what its like to follow the Spirit through life. I think the Celtic Christians were on to something. Most of us will have no idea where we are going most of the time. And I know that is unsettling. But circumstantial uncertainty also goes by another name: Adventure.- Mark Batterson, from the introduction to Wild Goose Chase<br />
