Episode 046: Confessions of a Former Grace Preacher
Intro music: Ventura Tyler Bates
Featured Music: Free Fallin‘ Tom Petty
And yes, you can still get Cornel’s book on Grace here
What do you do if you have a successful ministry, you have a growing audience, more and more invitations to speak, your book on the grace of God is selling well…and then you begin to doubt. You start questioning the church, God, and everything you invested your heart into.
Many Christian ministers in similar situations just keep their mouths shut and keep churning out the stuff people are wanting to hear because, well, their reputations and lets be even more honest, their financial livelihood depends on it
But not Cornel Marais…he shut down his blog, closed his ministry, and tossed out his books to start life anew. Today we have Cornel and his wife Rensia in house with us to share a bit about their journey as they look at life and God through a new lens that they are still in the process of figuring out.
