Whether you have already read the book "Through the River" or are interested in the topic of truth and how it impacts your faith and relationships, we welcome you and look forward to interacting with you.
One of the bloggers to review our book is working through a very difficult issue - homosexuality in the church. He worked to apply how our truth lenses might percieve this issue and we took some time to respond and give some feedback. Take a minute to read his review and our response.
Through the River: Understanding Your Assumptions About Truth
Behind your every decision and relationship are assumptions about truth that guide your actions. They go unnoticed in your daily life but their influence guides your faith, your relationships and your outreach. Come and explore the communities that live in River Town. As you read this simple analogy, we will introduce you to the three most common ways to view truth today – we call them Truth Lenses and they are an important part of your worldview. We will watch as the Rock Dwellers, Island Dwellers and Valley Dwellers interact while using different lenses.
