Change is everywhere in life. God seems to have designed it that way. Whether beautiful or painful, life altering or small, our pages are written with a story of change. If change is everywhere, we are encountering new realities all the time. From our first conversation with a person,... to our first kiss, to a new job, to our first experience with loss, newness is all around. When encountering change, we can be hesitant to embrace it, even outright resist it. It's either scary, or hard, or too much, or not as much as we desired, or possibly a combination of these. Because change is constant, it can seem as if we are walking through the same scenarios again and again. We have felt these feelings before, had these conversations before, and walked through these situations before--these painful moments seem to never fade. Even as we journey through the same situation for a second or third or tenth time, it calls for something new, for our story of change to continue in God. Change For the First Time, Again shares the life journey of the author while offering reflections on how to walk through change. ""In a world filled with fakes and facades, here is a story told with honesty and authenticity. In Change for The First Time, Again, Scott Lencke opens his heart and lets readers peer inside. Read it and be moved."" --Jonathan Merritt, author of Jesus is Better Than You Imagined ""The difference between a conservative and a radical is not the difference between resistance to changing and embrace of change, but rather how organic the changes are. Scott Lencke's memoir of his already quite adventurous life is the story of a man and woman discovering organic connections between where God had led them and where God was about to lead them. Anyone facing a change of life--from the common to the extraordinary--will benefit from this wise set of reflections on organic changes in life that keep one's mission in focus."" --Scot McKnight, Julius R. Mantey Professor of New Testament, Northern Seminary ""I believe this will be the strength of this book--to help others let true stories and thoughts of change arise and be considered. To let the meaning behind relationships be developed more fluidly. To give space to the edges of experience and grow from them."" (from the foreword) --Ken Steorts, President, Visible Music College Scott Lencke serves on staff at Visible Music College, a music and ministry college with campuses in Memphis, Chicago, and Dallas. He regularly blogs at www.prodigalthought.net.
