Item Description...
Most agree the church needs to change, but how can this be brought about? Innovations and openness to new ideas are all around us, but in the church there seems to be a way of thinking and behaving that has written change out of the agenda. As a result, many have left the church, or as Charles Ringma says, go to church "out of habit or guilt, but are frustrated, alienated and don't participate in its life." In Catch the Wind, Charles Ringma answers questions such as: . How can people be empowered for change? . Can they become responsible for their own spiritual growth? . What is the shape of the church of the future? . How can churches be organized as if people mattered? . How can our experience of church be a family one? Catch the Wind doesn't offer a single "model" for the church. But it does make a case for a more dynamic, less structured and risk-taking approach to our life together that builds people up and equips them for mission in the world. Charles R. Ringma is Professor of Missions and Evangelism at Regent College. He has previously done mission work among the Aborigines in Australia, was the founder and director of the Good News Centre which worked with alcoholics in Brisbane, and was Australian founder and executive director of Teen Challenge, also in Brisbane. He has taught at the Asian Theological Seminary in Manila and is the author of Gadamer's Dialogical Hermeneutic, Cry Liberation: With Voices from the Developing World, and Seek the Silences: With Thomas Merton.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Poignant, reflective and challenging  Jun 7, 2005
If you struggle with the Christian church, this book is for you. Charles Ringma has the courage to stand up and ask some very difficult questions to the contemporary church. He challenges the assumptions that form the basis for the church's current institutional structures; structures that constrict and marginalized lay people.

While he doesn't describe a "single ideal model" for church, he does paint a picture of what church can be: a dynamic, caring, people oriented, and de-centralized community that is focused on, and centered in, Christ.
