What a great evening of storytelling and lively conversation at the Continuum Center in Minneapolis on Wednesday, October 1! There were close to 100 people in the audience to hear six of the contributors to my book, Sixty Seconds: One Moment Changes Everything.
I spoke for a few minutes to open the evening, then introduced each of the speakers, who shared their stories and insights. Click here to watch separate videos of each speaker’s presentation.

THROUGH GOD’S EYES PDF SAMPLER
Phil’s eBook, The Logic of Living a Spiritual Life: Supporting a Life of Faith Through Logic and Reason, is now available for 99 cents on Amazon.
Order it at GodIsLogical.com.
In this eBook, you’ll find answers to questions like:
• What is the cornerstone of a spiritual life, and why?
• What is the secret to liberating yourself from other people’s judgments and expectations?
• Why is there an exception to “Everything happens for a reason”?
Those who worship logic instead of God are only half right. Not only is it logical to believe in God and to live a faith-based life, the existence of a loving, benevolent God that governs all creation is perhaps the only systematic worldview that explains every aspect of life.
