Driving real relationships in our changing world
The grieving process is part of being human, but far too often, Christian grievers are rushed into rejoicing that their loved one is in heaven. It is time for a better way to acknowledge that you can struggle with grief and still love God.
Intersexion is a harrowing, hopeful exploration of the cost of coming out—as a sexual minority, ally, or asker of difficult questions—and what it means to come into one’s own. It’s a book for anyone craving a more authentic life, a book about intersections we find ourselves in by no choice of our own.
Lost Faith and Wandering Souls acknowledges the religious identity crisis of our time and the full power of the psychological journey. By looking beneath the surface at deeper, lifelong dynamics, it shows a way to mourn our losses individually and socially so we can move to a healthier spirituality.
