Western Christianity is moving towards a religious realignment of epic proportions. How will your church navigate these changes? This is a book for those who will lead congregations in challenging times. Paradoxy helps you understand and explain what's happening, gives everyone a chance to speak and be heard, and moves you into the future as one body, together. Paradoxy resonates with my own experience. When the intention of people on opposite sides is to connect, not to win, they can bring forward the bes tof themselves. Deep human connection takes place in the presence of profound disagreement. It is a holy mystery." Mary Jacksteit, JD, MS Project Manager, Public Conversations Projection.
