You are Made for More
We’re made for more. And yet, the road between where we are and where we want to go can feel long and uncertain and sometimes disillusioning. Many of us have become weary of the journey and impatient with the waiting, but the truth is that it is in the waiting that the unseen work of transformation occurs, allowing us to cross the threshold to something new.
Many are sensing that the Church is on a new threshold. Author and pastor Brandan Roberston describes this threshold moment this way, “We are entering a truly liminal space where, for a multitude of reasons, many are leaving the ways they’ve historically worshiped and are entering into uncharted territory. This is an exciting time in religious history as we participate in radical and fundamental reforms of our institutions. A new reality is emerging, but we cannot see beyond the threshold.”
Do you wonder who and what can help the Church cross this threshold? A discernment model of spiritual leadership has always been at the heart of the Transforming Center. For more than 20 years, we have walked with pastors and leaders, providing guidance as they approach significant spiritual thresholds.
In order to expand our current ministry model and offerings, our goal is to raise $100,000 by December 31st. There is so much more to say than can be captured in a blog post or email. Watch the video so I can tell you a bit more.
