So imagine my excitement when reading Jensen's latest column about the Lost "superfans" (which have included many other awesome bloggers and Losties out there like our beloved DocArzt), and seeing that I've been referenced! Not by Jensen, but by the person he's interviewing. Superfan Lyla Miklos wrote a Lost church service (seriously, read the article to find out how amazing she is!) and she says at one point that I might have played a small role in it happening:
The more I watched Lost the more I felt in my bones that there was a church service sitting right in front of me. After I read Nikki Stafford's Finding Lost it helped to organize and cement some of the ideas that were bubbling in my brain. I was able to give the concept some form and shape and focus.
Yay!! So hey, my books might not be considered review-worthy by Entertainment Weekly, but to find out they actually helped someone put together a fantastic church service based on my favourite show? Wicked. I'm also really pleased that Jensen has highlighted Lost's spiritual and redemptive qualities, which are such important aspects of the series.
Congrats, Lyla, and thanks for mentioning me!! (You can access the transcript of her church service here.) And thanks so much to redeem147 for pointing me in the direction of the article. :)
