Change is everywhere in life. God seems to have designed it that way. Whether beautiful or painful, life-altering or small, our pages are written with a story of change.
If change is everywhere, we are encountering new realities all the time: from our first conversation with a person to our first kiss to a new job to our first experience with loss.
When encountering change, we can be hesitant to embrace it, even outright resist it. It’s either scary or hard or too much or not as much as we desired, or possibly a combination of these.
Change For the First Time, Again shares the life journey of the author while offering reflections on how to walk through change.
I am grateful for the Englewood Review of Books posting this review.
Scot McKnight, Author of The King Jesus Gospel and Kingdom Conspiracy
“The difference between a conservative and a radical is not the difference between resistance to changing and embrace of change, but rather how organic the changes are. Scott Lencke’s memoir of his already quite adventurous life is the story of a man and woman discovering organic connections between where God had led them and where God was about to lead them. Anyone facing a change of life — from the common to the extraordinary — will benefit from this wise set of reflections on organic changes in life that keep one’s mission in focus.”
Jonathan Merritt, Author of Jesus Is Better Than You Imagined
“In a world filled with fakes and facades, here is a story told with honesty and authenticity. In Change for the First Time, Again, Scott Lencke opens his heart and let’s readers peer inside. Read it and be moved.”
Dr. Ken Steorts, Founder and President of Visible Music College
“I believe this will be the strength of this book — to help others let true stories and thoughts of change arise and be considered. To let the meaning behind relationships be developed more fluidly. To give space to the edges of experience and grow from them.”
