Rewilding the heart of ministry from the inside out
Book Cover & Preview Text
I was not prepared in any way for how much a broken heart would cost me. Or how necessary it was for me to have one to dive deeper into ministry. One of the most dangerous prayers that we can lift to God is asking Him to break our heart with the things that break His. It isnt the same as that adage about when you pray for patience, God gives you things to be patient with. No, being broken is irreversible. I can be impatient even though the Lord has been teaching me patience for many years. I can do some very unwise things even though I have been asking for a heart of wisdom since I was a teenager. Having a broken heart is something completely different. When you've been shattered by an experience, there is no going back. It reminds me of some of the last words of Frodo in Lord of The Rings. When he asks about whether one can pick up the pieces of an old life. It's impossible.

About the Book
Earl Buchan, a pastor and church planter, shares encouragement for all those looking around and saying to themselves “there must be more than this.” It all begins with a fearless searching of our hearts to rewild ministry from the inside-out.
He looks to the Bible and over twenty years’ experience in the church to share from his own successes and failures sharing wisdom, warnings, and reminders of why we are meant to be in Christ. Earl shares that it all starts with us, live a life of openness and it will change the atmosphere in our churches and in our homes.
As you read, you’ll get answers to questions such as:
What can you really expect when you enter ministry?
Why is it so important to be your authentic self in all circumstances?
What are the costs to living His will, His way?
How can we overcome ourselves so people see more of Jesus and less of us?
This journey is not for the faint of heart, or those full of themselves. The author has been both, and he shares how the Lord rewilded his own heart in order to reveal the beauty of a called life.
