The Beautiful Disappointment:
Colin McCartney


6x9 - 208 Pages

The many challenges life throws at us do not shape us. How we respond
to these challenges do. In "The Beautiful Disappointment" urban
youth worker and author, Colin McCartney, shares his personal struggles
in dealing with the murder of one of his staff, the death of a child in
his program and his own near death experience from a paralysing water
accident in Hawaii. While the author was recovering from this life
threatening accident in the critical care unit of Maui Memorial
Hospital he slowly realizes that trials are "beautiful
disappointments" God can use to purge us off all the false things we
have allowed to disfigure who we truly are. It is through this
"refining by trials" that the author experiences the intimate
presence of God, a presence in our soul that frees us to reconnect to
who we truly are as God originally created us to be. A true story that
will leave the reader truly changed.
