Finding Freedom and Grace in a Broken World

New Title from Thomas M. Stallter: Finding Freedom and Grace in a Broken World: A Journey in the Purposes and Providence of God

FAITH NEWS SERVICE – We have been brought up to see things in a particular way—to interpret our experience and respond to events, people, and even to God in cultural and personal ways. This has given us a frame of reference that undergirds all else we know, trust, and love in life, as well as all we question, distrust, and hate.

But we live in a broken world, and it has influenced us more than we know; we wonder why we are unable to experience the freedom and peace Jesus talks about. But things are not always what they seem; we need to see them as they are, not as other influences have shaped them. It is time we let God speak for himself on the matter.

Finding Freedom and Grace in a Broken World: A Journey in the Purposes and Providence of God turns our minds to trust and freedom in our walk with God. It leads us to know God’s grace, providence, and purposes in a way that changes our lives and experiences in this broken world from this day on.

Endorsements:

This book “invites the reader to examine implicit values shaped in the soul by cultural assumptions of Western Christianity. The book stretches us to move beyond a performance-based Christianity to a deeply trust-based relationship with God himself. This multifaceted book with various entries covers well the gamut of the Christian life, written from the heart of a seasoned coach and a caring soul mentor.” –Christy Hill, professor of spiritual formation and women’s ministry, Grace College and Seminary

This book “is a comprehensive, exhaustive exploration, a deep dive into the world of knowing and trusting the God of Scripture. It examines divine grace from every imaginable perspective through 234 brief, easily digestible essays.” –Michael Card, author of Inexpressible: Hesed and the Mystery of God’s Lovingkindness

State of the Christian Workplace 2024 Report Highlights Employee Engagement Trends

FAITH NEWS SERVICE – (Mercer Island, WA)—The State of the Christian Workplace 2024 report provides insights into employee engagement and workplace health in Christian-led workplaces. For the first time, results from Best Christian Workplaces research are publicly available in an accessible and statistically valid format.

Now leaders who want to take steps to create a flourishing workplace culture can learn about what matters to employees in Christian-led workplaces. This glimpse into employee engagement highlights anonymous feedback from more than 100,000 Christian employees across multiple sectors.

Jay Bransford, President and CEO of Best Christian Workplaces, emphasizes the importance of workplace health: “Healthy Christian-led workplaces can succeed in spreading Christ-like service, character, and values to the world. Our research shows that in 2023 around 55% of employees in Christian-led organizations felt positively engaged. This is far higher than the percentage that is observed in the secular world. Having a healthy workplace doesn’t just happen. It takes intentional effort. Of the organizations we surveyed in 2023, we found that about 29% fell below our criteria for a “Healthy” score. This striking reality reminds us that many Christian leaders still need to be equipped to build Flourishing WorkplacesTM. Best Christian Workplaces exists to provide such support.”

Along with overall data, the State of the Christian Workplace 2024 report highlights trends over the past five years by demographics and by sector. As a leader in the study of employee engagement, Best Christian Workplaces has a robust data set that includes thousands of employee voices. The size of the data set allows statistically reliable categorization by different types of organizations.

Included in the report are the following categories:

  • Churches
  • Parachurch and Missions
  • Rescue Missions
  • Family Services
  • Christian Schools (K-12)
  • Higher Education
  • Businesses
  • Other Nonprofits

For more than two decades Best Christian Workplaces has come alongside Christian-led organizations to measure employee engagement and make positive steps to improve their workplace culture. Ministry Partners who use the research-based Employee Engagement Survey have access to their own data, and can also see how they compare to their peers. They benefit from the guidance of experienced Best Christian Workplaces consultants who help them interpret their results and develop action plans to improve workplace health.

Learn more about the attributes of a flourishing workplace by reading the State of the Christian Workplace 2024 report. Then listen to the voices of your own employees through an Employee Engagement Survey, and commit to action that improves workplace health.

Riveting New Release, “Former Things Forgotten” set in the Heart of Appalachia Will be Free to Download Tomorrow, February 20, 2024

FAITH NEWS SERVICE – United States—Monday, February 19, 2024

In a literary world teeming with tales of love and loss, debut author Thomas Trezise takes readers on an unforgettable journey that transcends the mundane and pierces the veil between heaven and earth. His novel, “Former Things Forgotten,” is set to release this month available where ever books are sold.

Crafted with eloquence and infused with profound spiritual insight, “Former Things Forgotten” presents the riveting tale of Tessa Gibbs, a fiery, red-headed woman yearning for escape from her harsh Appalachian life. Her journey takes her from the mountains of Eastern Tennessee, fueled by a desperate need to break free from her father’s oppressive religiosity, into a world that challenges her in ways she never anticipated.

Trezise’s narrative style paints a vivid picture of Tessa’s struggles, as she navigates the complexities of life, faith, and personal identity. However, unbeknownst to Tessa, her soul carries the weight of a celestial rebellion, a forgotten existence that echoes her earthly conflict. The ensuing battle for her soul forms the core of this compelling narrative, a story that explores the profound implications of the choices we make.

The author brings his unique perspective as a retired lawyer, Methodist lay preacher, and corporate executive to this powerful exploration of faith, freedom, and human resilience. Raised in Appalachia, Trezise infuses his narrative with the authenticity of his own experiences, offering readers a glimpse into the heart and soul of a region often misunderstood.

Former Things Forgotten” is more than a novel; it’s a journey of self-discovery and spiritual awakening. It invites readers to examine their own lives, their choices, and their destinies. This book serves as a beacon, illuminating the path towards understanding the eternal nature of relationships and the consequences of living for oneself or living for God.

Be prepared to be captivated by “Former Things Forgotten,” a thought-provoking novel that promises to leave readers pondering long after the final page is turned. This is more than a book; it’s an experience—an invitation to delve into the depths of one’s soul and emerge with a renewed sense of purpose and destiny.

Thomas Trezise’sFormer Things Forgotten” will be available for download for free on Amazon for 5 days from February 20, 2024 through February 24, 2024. Former Things Forgotten” is highly rated by those who have purchased the book. Here’s what just two of the reviewers have said:

Rich allegory throughout both sub-plots. The way the sub-plots converge has an element of surprise but also a feeling of ‘well, of course.’ Trezise displays a deep empathy and respect for Appalachia and its people. More than a story about faith, Former Things Forgotten offers a keen perspective–without trying to convince or convert–on what it means to have a personal relationship with God and the meaning of free will. A fairly quick read but you might catch yourself going back and re-reading various chapters–as the storyline progresses, it hints at things you may have missed in earlier reading. Don’t resist the urge to go back…it’s worth it.
Michael Cameron
5 Stars – Parallel storylines and clever twists

Former Things Forgotten is a well written story with thought provoking messages. Strong character development and mountain life wonderfully crafted. Christian theme embracing Christ and the Kingdom of God a much needed & timely topic in this day and age. Worth a read.

5 Stars – Thoughtful & Inspirational Novel

New book helps families deal with the devastation of miscarriage

FAITH NEWS SERVICE – In her honest and heartfelt reminiscence, Christ’s Passion – Hope and comfort through miscarriage, Heide L. Wright bravely discloses her personal testimony of walking through the lonely heartbreak of miscarriage, reaching out and taking hold of God’s hand, learning to wholeheartedly trust in the Lord, to hand over her grief to Him, who in turn, refines her bereavement in such a way, it transforms her outlook and deepens her faith.

Heide is reminded His ways are not always our ways and His thoughts far higher than ours. She testifies to the truth, the Lord can use all things for good and He has a distinguished plan for every single one of us, including those conceived who don’t get to breathe their first breath. Her relationship with the Lord is sincerely inspiring.

Christ’s Passion – Hope and comfort through miscarriage takes us on a journey of grief, questioning and struggle, to perseverance, growth and hope, encouraging the reader to look beyond their anguish and to determine there is security and renaissance in One who is greater, who loves them (and their baby) unconditionally. Christ’s Passion imparts courage to the reader to surrender all tribulation, anxiety and fear to the Lord, who exchanges our ashes for His beauty.

Throughout her life, Heide has often found the Lord has used her writing to bring about a purposeful healing as well as a greater understanding of His love for her and her readers. Therefore, she felt it would be meaningful to include a journal and reflection space within the pages of Christ’s Passion. She anticipates as the reader pens their thoughts, their concealed pain for themselves privately, it will aid in the all-important grieving process, and with confidence, will exchange their sorrow for peace.

Released by Ark House Press, this full colour book is presented with virtue as the delightful imagery complements the gentle tone that whispers hope throughout the words that grace each sentiment. Christ’s Passion – Hope and comfort through miscarriage is sincerely a remarkable read as it shares the message of Christ’s love, His healing grace, and a strong emphasis on the significance of life within the womb.

About the author
Heide L. Wright began her writing odyssey with poetry, (not counting the numerous ‘value books’ she scribbled as a primary school student!) Her first published book, Bring Me Roses, (under the author name Heide Louise) is a collection of poetry Heide composed as the Lord assisted her to trust in Him, securing His assurance that He loves her wholeheartedly and that like each of us, she has value in the eyes of the Lord. Heide believes through the work of the Holy Spirit, God used her writing to build her self-esteem and ultimately, brought about an admirable healing as He equipped her in battle, to gain her life back from the grasp of the deceptive and harrowing illness anorexia nervosa. As she overcame; as the Lord used her agonising trial to do a work in her, He filled her heart with such an assurance that His love knows no boundaries, that He is her Prince of peace, her entire source of security, and the very foundation of her heart’s desires.

Heide is a wife to a very patient and humble, God-fearing man and a privileged mother to their nine children, (plus her three girls she miscarried.) She and her family reside in Perth, Western Australia. Heide spends her days caring for the needs of her family and maintaining their home. (Limitless loads of washing and considerable pots of cuisine for inviting dinners!)

Heide’s testimony is truly a noteworthy victory. Nothing is impossible with our God.

Final thoughts
Heide L. Wright believes the most exciting and significant moment in our lifetime is when we choose to commit our life to Christ. However, you are never truly prepared for the difficulties that are before you and you cannot anticipate the sheer loneliness and hardships you could encounter. She has discovered that often there can be a persona amongst Christian’s that life is always good and that even when you are suffering, you are meant to hide that fact, in order to prevent bringing a lesser testimony to God’s goodness. On the contrary, we live in a fallen world and pain is inevitable. God never promised life on this earth would be effortless. However, what He does promise it that He will be there for us. Heide emphasises, the longer we endure adversity, the greater we grow in strength through the Lord, and our faith in Him deepens. Our trials, trust and commitment can indeed bring glory to His name. Even though at times life can be troublesome, God can bring about distinguished beauty.
