In Trusting Change, minister and award-winning author Karen Hering invites readers on the cusp of great change—which is all of us today—to explore the new possibilities emerging in our times. Whether you are living through significant personal transitions or navigating a world reshaping itself faster than ever, the ten skills discussed in the book provide tools for living on the threshold as well as spiritual practices and inspiration for connecting with your own inner wisdom.

Sharing wisdom found in the body, in nature, and in metaphors, these reflections include creative and embodied exercises that invite readers into a larger story of change. Through her writings, Rev Hering reminds us that trusting change is made possible by sharing its challenges and its possibilities with others. This book is a conversation with the reader meant to also stir conversations between readers as we learn to live into and through our transformative times together.

A discussion guide for the book study will be available to support you.

Rev Hering will be our guest speaker on Sunday Oct 1st at 10 AM to kick off our study series. Her lesson title is Crossing the Threshold of Change. What does it mean to live on the threshold of change? To dwell in that liminal space between here and there and past and future, a place of both letting go and discovering new possibilities. The threshold is a dynamic place that challenges us to find a new balance as we experience change – in the world, in our communities and in our personal lives. Rev. Karen Hering will explore poet Luci Shaw’s suggestion that “maybe this is what is meant for us – to be ready to be unsteady.”
