***This is a prequel novella to Fisher's Light. It is about the life of Trip Fisher. Fisher's Light should be read before Worth the Trip*** It's time for me to tell my story. I know I'm a coward for waiting this long to explain my side of things. I know I should have tried long before now to make amends. There's nothing like staring right at death's door to put a fire under your ass. I'm going to die with enough regrets to fill ten notebooks and that's a tough pill to swallow, but when I meet my maker, I want to be able to hold my head high with the knowledge that at least I confronted all of those regrets. The Life and Times of Trip Fisher I'm sorry, I love you, please forgive me.
Many congregations and church leaders are faced with the collapse of the institutional church culture in America. A great number of them have retreated inside their four walls and created church activities to replace their Christ-given mission to make disciples, and thereby extending His kingdom on earth "thy kingdom come." Abandoning their mission means they have abandoned their real identity and reason for existence. Others have gone to the other extreme by selling out to the culture. Their worship service is a form of entertainment with the objective "to feel good" and "be happy." Both choices have turned off many saved people, and they have left the church. In 1998, a Barna poll reflected that 20 million born-again Christians had withdrawn their membership. Today's poll shows an increase to 115,000 million. Many are out there striving to reboost the church's lost mission "to make disciples" and "thy kingdom come." God has not changed His mind!
"People speak glibly about life changing moments. Some truly qualify. You propose marriage and are accepted. You hear, 'You're hired' or 'You're fired' and your future shifts instantly. The doctor says 'malignant' (or something else life-changing) and everything is different. But anyone who has ever lived through it will tell you: It is profoundly shattering to learn, in one instant, that everything you thought was true about a loved one (my words: or perhaps your own life) is actually a lie. (Your entire world is turned upside down - what you thought about yourself, and what gave meaning to your life). The world rocks on its axis; when it is finally steady again, you are in a strange place that resembles, but is totally unlike the place you were in just a moment earlier."- Diana B Henriques from 'Wizard of Lies; Bernie Madoff and the Death of Trust'A story of renewal and transformation: a transformation of heart.

I want to continually test my own writing "limits", the "boundaries of my imagination." *And whenever c came to a cross roads in his life about which path to take, he meditated and prayed and followed the voice within, the indwelling Holy Spirit. What would Jesus do (WWJD) in this situation? Then he usually followed, not his mind (logic), but his heart, as well as the highest thought, the highest possible choice. So c chose to write about the road less travelled, the path of the pursuit of PEACE. Through attempting in some small way to break down barriers and divisions between peoples, one mind, one heart, one tiny step at a time. And every great journey starts with a single small step.Solet the story begin... # #PROLOGUEA TALE OF TWO CITIESIt was a beautiful spring day in September in the year 1988, the sky overhead a clear blue with not a cloud in sight. Desperately trying to find some answers to what was happening in their life, the middle-aged couple had just come from the neurologist in Perth, Western Australia. Shattered , they walked out of the 2nd floor building back to the bright red new Holden company car parked in busy Mill Point Road overlooking the shimmering Swan river. Feeling so alone in a new country, they felt shattered at hearing the news, not knowing where their lives were headed. Traumatized they didn't know where to turn... or what to do next... just devoid of hope
