Colby remains obstinately hopeful that the church can still be a force for amazing good in the world. With his wife and Co pastor Kate, they started Sojourn Grace Collective nearly six years ago, a progressive Christian church in San Diego.
Colby is the author of UnClobber: Rethinking Our Misuse of the Bible on Homosexuality, and his next book comes out next spring titled The Shift.
The Shift is a survival guide for becoming a progressively minded christian. It’s about the scary, confusing, and lonely journey of leaving or being kicked out of your conservative Christian community and finding yourself on the journey toward a more progressive faith.
The Shift features chapters such as:
What to do when the idea of god stops making sense.
What to do with your love/hate relationship with the church.
What to do with your more conservative friends and family who think you’ve gone off the deep end.
But it’s not just about surviving, because the truth is, a life more open, more loving, and more grace filled leads to a flourishing life of thriving.
The Shift will be available April 21, 2020, and today Colby is excited to announce that pre-orders are now available at colbymartinonline.com.
