American churches are experiencing a power shortage, declare the authors of Living Your Strengths. "People aren't harnessing the power of their innate gifts."
Does this message sound familiar? Have you felt disconnected from your church lately? Are you not attending as much?
Or maybe you're a passionate member who wants to become even more involved, and you would also like to inspire others.
Whatever the case, more than half of churchgoers report that they don't get to do what they do best in their congregations. And this is driving people away.
But it doesn't have to be this way. Living Your Strengths shows all members how to use their innate gifts to enrich their congregations - right now. It teaches you to identify and affirm your talents and how to use them for growth and service.
The apostle Paul wrote: "For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ." He meant that every individual - every member - plays a role in energizing and shaping the Church.
Living Your Strengths will help you find your role - and, most importantly, it will inspire you to discover your true calling.
