The Good News Challenge

This post is part of the 'Re-Imagining Discipleship' Series: Insights and reflections from Seed's 2023 Summit.“I know I am who I am because somebody loved me. Somebody cared for me. Somebody attended to me…. I cannot conceive of whatever witness I have been able to bear of the cracked vessel I am without acknowledging I was born into love”Words I am consistently struck by of Dr Cornel West when he introduces himself in a public event.

Pathway Builders Part Two

Where should those pathways lead? Our hope is that the pathways ultimately make it possible for Christians to be agents for redemptive change in society.

Identity, Story & Purpose

When God calls people into relationship with him, he offers them new life.

What happens, primarily, is that God designates us with a new identity. God changes who we are.
