Forging a New Path

Moving the church forward in a post-pandemic world
  • By Rebekah Simon-Peter
Product Description

Rebekah Simon-Peter’s Forging a New Path is a groundbreaking guidebook for the post-pandemic church. The prophet Ezekiel surveyed a valley of dry bones and asked, “Can these bones rise again?” His prophetic vision hinted at the lifelessness of worship hundreds of years ago.

In the twenty-first century, his question echoes through time in a new way: Can this church grow again? For people who care about faith-based communities, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and the Kingdom of God, this question is critical. When the pandemic broke out, it badly disrupted church life, already hindered by declining membership, forcing pastors and church members alike to ask once more, “Can this church grow again?”

Rebekah Simon-Peters wrote Forging a New Path in response to conversations and questions that people in churches across the country are having. The author focuses on three persistent questions:

· When do things go back to normal?

· How do we get people (back) to church?

· How do we do more with less?

Simon-Peter leaves no stone unturned, looking at pandemics past to see how medieval Christians dealt with these same issues. Their answers were surprising. The author writes this is the perfect time for Christians to envision and forge a new path forward with God. In this book, the author shares what we can learn from our past to help reshape our future. She writes that our future won’t come from superficial or technical changes but from profound changes in the way we live out being the church.

Simon-Peter borrows the words of Ezekiel, “Can these bones rise?” to remind the reader of the Scripture’s answer: “This is what the sovereign LORD says to these bones, ‘I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life.’”
