Wayne’s journey has led him to greater intimacy and joy in his spirituality, and to ever-deepening and more authentic relationships with others, both inside and outside of the body of Christ. As a bridgebuilder he has helped very diverse groups find the common ground that can lead to cooperation instead of polarization.
Paul said that we are all ambassadors of the ministry of reconciliation. Learning to live openly and generously in the world gives God the best environment to extend his peace to others. Of course, not everyone takes it, and the outcome of our efforts is not always in our hands. However, learning to live loved changes the way we live in the world, making us better listeners even to those with whom we disagree and more generous with people around us who are in need. We’ll find ourselves giving a drink of cold water to a stranger, overwhelmed with compassion for broken hearts, and gracious even when mistreated by others.
