The Christian Church is at a crossroads and it’s painful. I write about processing change. If we ever needed to know how to process change its’ now. We have a choice, change or become obsolete. The choice is to continue in the way we have for the last 100 years or change. Lots of people are leaving their church. Perhaps this is a sign that people are ready for change. We will explore change in the church and how to be teachable so that we can be open to where God is moving next.
Stories of Resilience
I write about my experiences in Guatemala and El Salvador. Even on a day when a machine gun was pointed directly at me, by the time my head hit the pillow at night, I was at peace. I practiced things like journaling, mindfulness and contemplative prayer although I didn’t think of it in those terms. I share writing from my upcoming book about El Salvador and how God loved me through it all. I write about other people who found strength in adversity, such as Viktor Frankl and Joni Eareckson-Tada.
I write about the new move of God. In this segment, I look to the future. I explore new ways to approach Christianity. I write about what it means to live in this new season of the Church. How does our identity need to shift? I dream of Christian churches where leaders are not burning out and people are not leaving wounded: where the Christian communities are known to be life-giving and a place of love.
