As leaders there is always the subtle temptation to allow our identity to be found in our own accomplishments. Our degrees, successes, networks, and personalities become what form and inform our perspectives for ministry. But what if God is choosing a different way to shape us for His call? Desert experiences. Painful self-awareness. Suffering. What if God’s way involves the breaking of ourselves to be filled by Him? Join us as we sit down with PIR Board Member and friend Shalini Bennett who shares with joy and passion from her experiences of growth in understanding God’s sovereign ways, and the living hope we have in Christ.
