Description
What happens when the reality you face doesn't align with the narratives of "truth" you've trusted up to this point? What if the destination you thought you were headed toward is not manifesting the way you hoped, is it possible to change course without disrupting the life you have built? Maybe the life you've built isn't what you feel calling you, but it's the life you know and makes you feel safe. "Light Through a Rusty Roof" is a captivating novel about life's wonderfully complex journey. Follow along as one man must wrestle with his identity as he experiences doubt, struggle, and growth. Can love conquer fear when it requires a leap of faith? In this unfolding adventure, Rev. Peter's life is turned upside down. A Southern pastor in midlife, he finds himself facing a daily struggle with fatigue, disillusionment, doubt, and cynicism. His hopes shrink, relationships contract, dreams fall apart, and transformative faith shrivels into a small, old box of institutionalism. As he encounters "the Others," his experiences with them are...unexpected. And their reality is challenging everything he knows to be "true." The journey may save his faith – if it doesn't destroy him first! Can he find the courage to abandon his sense of stability, embrace new friends, and choose a new beginning?

Cornerstone is an eclectic mixture of beautifully messy and amazing people striving to live in this story bigger than themselves.
