Wiens, Steve. Beginnings: The First Seven Days of the Rest of Your Life. Colorado Springs, CO: NavPress (Tyndale House Publishers). 2015.
Buried deep within each person is a hidden gift ready to be cultivated, nourished and grown. Based on the seven days of Creation, pastor and author Steve Wiens parallels that beginning with becoming or emerging rather than staying or stagnating. Believing each life is not fixed but instead transitioning, Beginnings focuses on each person as a verb, not a noun. With personal stories, intriguing ideas, practice actions, reflection and discussion, it is hard to remain standing still…
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Though not a light read, I found Beginnings to be an interesting read, especially when coupling the Creation story with inner purpose, opportunity and beginnings. Seeds, monsters, seasons, light…all ideas used to strengthen, encourage and shed light on possibilities of searching, growing and challenging while reminding us we are not alone in life. Able to relate physically, mentally and emotionally to his training of running a marathon, Steve Wiens took it one step further and asked what next? Perfect as a Bible study, Life Group idea or sermons series, this book will help you navigate that next life-transition a bit smoother.
