In his book Times and Seasons, James Langston Tackles One of Life's most Illusive Questions: Why?
All the Research … All the Time and Effort Invested … All the hard Work … and Still your Project fails. "Not the right time" they say, but Why?
James who is founder and senior pastor of the Pilgrim Outreach Ministries International, a ministry broadcast on five continents to a potential audience of 1 million, says his ultimate goal is to tweak the world's thinking so that we may reevaluate our concept of times and seasons: specifically we are to never quit, to never give up, and to never ever regret having failed. To echo the words of General George S. Patton, "Success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom."
As head of the Navy's Drug and Alcohol Recruit Processing laboratory in San Diego, 1988-1991, then the busiest military processing laboratory on the west coast, James oversaw the screening and processing of more than 200,000 samples yearly with a .003 error rate.
In 1996 as Director of the Navy's premier Communications Information Technology (IT) School, he provided technical and military training for approximately 11,000 officer and enlisted students annually.
"I want everyone to be the best they can be using their god given talents and abilities," said James Langston. "I'm fed up with grouping everyone together with a cookie cutter, one size fits all approach. I refuse to be part of the culture that says it's okay to be just like everyone else. I want you to succeed! I want you to be encouraged! I want you to be a part of something that's a whole lot bigger than you and I."
"Oftentimes we tie our hands behind our backs by failing to consider that our successes or failures are tied to the times and seasons of life. For example, the time may look right to start your venture, but it may be the wrong season. Or the season may seem conducive to the vision, but the timing is not right … for us to be more than a byword, or an after thought, we, out of necessity must be watchers of the times and seasons around us."
Langston's "old school" approach to the day-to-day demands of life, love and living are further defined in his methodology to helping people. He says, "In order to have an influence and impact on those who have become discouraged with life, this path is often a necessary road of travel. I realize that there are many who view life as cold and uncaring, with no way out; however, for the record, there is a way out!"
Langston says he hopes this book will impart readers the necessary tools to take control of their time, their resources, their life choices and their futures now rather than later.
