Ministry Toolbox: Journaling, with Adam Feldman

Ready to workAdam Feldman is a friend of mine from my Baltimore days. Adam planted Metanoia Church in Ellicott City, Maryland, and has been doing incredible work there through the years, intentionally focusing on creating disciples who make disciples. This week Adam released a great new book, Journaling: Catalyzing Spiritual Growth Through Reflection. While the book is designed to be a quick read, it is a deep read that sets up readers to really lean into the discipline of journaling. I can see this as being an excellent resource for church leaders who are looking to help their congregations learn about the importance of critical reflection in the life of a believer, and giving them the tools needed to investigate one method of incorporating this practice into their daily life.

In the conversation below, Adam shares the backstory of the book, and why it could be such a valuable tool to you, and your church. Check out the video, though you may have to watch it twice due to the magnificence of his beard:
