The books and articles and blogs below are resources we would recommend to read and reflect on. We include them because we believe they are significant contributions for the good and growth of the church. Just because they are included does not mean we agree with everything in them; we always encourage people to read with discernment. At the same time, be open to the things the author has to say – allow the Lord to stretch you and grow you. And if you know us, you will not be surprised to hear us say, “Read these in community. Discuss them as an active member of the body of Christ.”

We will seek to update this page on a regular basis.
