First Trinity’s Executive Ministry Team (EMT)* makes a practice of reading and discussing books together, to help us continue to grow spiritually and professionally. We thought we’d share those books here, in case you’d like to read them, as well.
I loved this book! “The Other Half of Church” explores the connection between brain science and spiritual growth–life transformation. It turns out that what we “know” (the facts, information, and truth of the Bible) is only one half of what God uses to transform us into Jesus-followers. The book makes the case that what we know only gets into our lives as action when it is coupled with taking in God’s delight in us, relationships with other Jesus-followers, and an identity as part of God’s family. I highly recommend this book!
*The Executive Ministry Team (EMT) is made up of Pastor Chuck Whited, Director of Attract Ministries Jason Christ, Director of Care Ministries Marsha Peth, Director of Transformation Ministries Sue Steege, Director of Serve Ministries Carl Fretthold
