A new (2012) bishop in the Episcopal Church offers hope that healing and all things are possible A reflective and prayerful education and formation resource for adults While there is truth in the idea that our past shapes our future, the gospel is all about the counter-intuitive promise that God is shaping us right now toward God's vision of who we will become. It is not our past that makes us into the image of God; God's redeeming love does that. In God, who we are not yet is shaping who we become. Appealing to anyone drawn to a deeper understanding of their own story and a richer sense of Gods transforming presence, this book will have special resonance for people at turning points in their lives. Career changes, loss of a loved one, graduation, illness, divorce, birth of a child, entering middle or later years: Life is filled with turning points at which we feel compelled to tell our story in a new and different way. Each chapter focuses on a gospel passage, leading to a reflection on a significant point in the author's life which uncovers deeper and more personal meaning in the biblical text. Questions conclude each chapter, engaging readers to look at their own lives good and bad and find God, experiencing the joy, surprise, and healing of God's future rewriting the past. Audience: Clergy, spiritual directors, individuals (spiritual seekers, those in discernment, bible reflections); adult study; pastoral care: those seeking hope and healing from a troubled past.
