The Christian leader of the future is called to be completely irrelevant and to stand in this world with nothing to offer but his or her own vulnerable self. ~ Henri J.M. Nouwen
GRACE, TRUTH & TIME is a valuable resource for leaders. Learn to lead through God’s grace; create a space for spiritual growth and healing; empathize, listen and engage with those in pain; grow in prayer and compassion; foster hope and encouragement; build small group communities that thrive.
A companion resource to Chronic Joy’s THRIVE study series.
“GRACE, TRUTH & TIME is both practical and beautifully written. Aptly titled after three qualities God uses to bring about spiritual growth, this guide offers insightful, concrete tips for every type of leader — from the first-time facilitator to the seasoned group leader.” ~ LAURA J. BOGGESS, licensed psychologist, author of Playdates with God: Having a Childlike Faith in a Grown Up World
