Mark Meynell
International ministry trainer and speaker Mark Meynell shares both personal experience and historical insight into the loss of trust that threatens the very cohesion of society. Acknowledging that the church also has a dubious record when it has wielded power and that many of its members suffer from culture’s breakdown of trust, Mark still advocates for faith and hope. Marks book "A Wilderness of Mirrors" not only explores the roots of the discord and alienation that mark our society, but also outlines a gospelbased corrective. An astute social observer with a pastor’s spiritual sensitivity, Meynell grounds his antidote on four bedrocks of the Christian faith: human nature, Jesus, the church, and the story of God's action in the world.
