Christians are arguing over what deconstruction means, why it happens, whether it’s good or bad, and what to do about it. Our friends at Gravity Leadership have seen that most people who are deconstructing are looking for a way IN to follow Jesus, not a way OUT, and so the way through deconstruction is to take Jesus MORE seriously, not less.
In this webinar, Ben Sternke and Matt Tebbe, co-founders of Gravity Leadership, will discuss how to navigate deconstruction faithfully: both for those who are undergoing deconstruction, and for those who are called to walk alongside friends, colleagues, and family members who are deconstructing. They’ll also point the way toward reconstructing a spirituality centered in God’s love that can be good news for the world.
