The Christian Atheist

The Christian Atheist, by recovering Christian Atheist Craig Groeschel, is an honest, hard-hitting and eye-opening look into the ways people believe in God but live as if he doesn’t exist.

People in my church often ask me, “What can we do to help you?”

This week I’d like to dialog about how people can truly help and support their pastor. I’ll write from my perspective and would love to hear yours.

Your Words of Encouragement Matter

Dear Church,

Thank you so much for taking time to share how God is working in your life. Knowing that our ministry is making a difference is often all I need to keep going when I’d rather give up.

As your pastor, I’m way more “human” than I’d like to be. In my best moments, I’m fully convinced of God’s calling and presence. In my worst moments, I feel weak, insecure and totally ineffective as a Christian, much less the shepherd of a flock.

Just last week, one of you took the time to tell me how God has used our church to change your life for the better. I didn’t tell you, but on the inside I was wondering if my efforts mattered. God used your words to minister to me in a deep way.

Thanks so much for telling me how God is working in your life!

How has God used your church to minister to you?

    I just wanted to take a moment and say “Thank You” for writing this book. I have been at a crossroads with my faith. I’ve grown far from God and have been trying to return to Him. While out with my wife we stopped at a Christian Book store at our local mall. I was drawn to this book for some reason. It was until I purchased it and read it that I truly believe that God lead me to this book. It was everything that I’ve been struggling with in my life. I was a blessing to know that I am not alone. I know that I have a long way to go, but I know that God is with me. I told my wife after reading this book that I truly feel my life has been saved. Thank you again for writing this book. You helped save a lost Christian.
