Trust is a word we all use, but don't really understand. When it is broken, betrayed, lost it hurts and costs us physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. When we have it we don't really recognise it. Vanessa Hall has spent over a decade exploring and understanding trust from all angles - in our faith, ourselves, our personal relationships, our families, our businesses, our communities, our global society. She has traveled the world, presented to and coached people from all walks of life, and is on a continuous journey of learning to trust, and sharing stories with others. In 2019 Vanessa, through Entente, the International Movement of Trust, is launching a whole new series of online courses to help people around the world grasp just how significant trust really is.
The church has had to change through COVID, and this is the perfect storm for the emergence of the 'new' church. Written as an article for Equip Magazine, published by Ethos - the Evangelical Alliance Centre for Christianity and Society, Vanessa Hall shares her thoughts on what is and should be emerging as new ways of 'doing' and 'being' the church.
