Yesterday I had a lot of books on my desk, but last night I cleared them off and put them in a pile on top of the bookshelf. (Not really away, but out of the way.) So it's trickier to do this now. Is the thesaurus on top of the pile on the bookshelf closer than either of the books on the shelf above my desk? It's close. I cheat. I look at the two closest books to see what's on page 123. Yikes. They are both title pages for chapters. There aren't eight sentences on either page.
The winner is Celebration of Discipline: The Path to Spiritual Growth by Richard Foster. This is from page 122:
"The risen Christ beckons us to the ministry of the towel. Perhaps you would like to begin by experimenting with a prayer that a number of us have used. Begin the day by praying, "Lord Jesus, I would so appreciate it if You would bring me someone today whom I can serve."
(The other book was How to Probate an Estate in California. The closest paragraph was about ways to transfer real estate after death, which is useful advice in its own way.)
