The world is fractured. Tensions are high, patience is low, and goodwill is hard to come by. In The Genius of One, author and pastor Greg Holder reminds us of the high value Jesus and his early followers placed on community and offers guidance for how to see and relate to one another in emotionally and spiritually healthy ways so that we, the church, can fulfill Jesus’ prayer for us and model a better way of loving one another in a fractured world.
Tracing back to a prayer Jesus prayed on the worst night of his life, “That they”―that we―“would be one,” Holder takes his readers on a winding journey from that glorious prayer to the practical realities of everyday life. For those who cling to the hope that God is still at work, this book will both stir a deeper longing for a better way and provide practical steps toward that way."
Living Water Peru, in partnership with Tommy Head Peru Ministries, works deep in the heart of the Amazon rainforest to bring clean water to native tribes living along tributaries of the Amazon River. These communities, forgotten by their government, cannot continue to develop without clean water. In many of these remote areas, the infant mortality rate is 50 percent or higher. The need for sustainable water solutions is desperate, but reaching these areas is often challenging. Getting to the villages, transporting supplies, and other mobilization efforts are risky, difficult, and costly.
