Glenn Packiam: Blessed Broken Given

How Your Story Becomes Sacred in the Hands of Jesus

Blessed Broken Given
(Multnomah, 2019)

WHO: Glenn Packiam, associate senior pastor at New Life Church.

HE SAYS: “There is Jesus, ready to take what you place in his hands. It is these very moments and your very story that he wants to bless and break and give.”

THE BIG IDEA: Our stories can become sacred in Jesus’ hands.

In Part 1, “Blessed,” explains that God restores us. Part 2, “Broken,” looks at how we often fall and make mistakes. Part 3, “Given,” shows what it looks like when we share our lives and experiences with others.

“What I get to do is be a witness: witness to a story becoming blessed as God returns people to their origins and restores their identity; witness to a story that may have been broken by failure or frailty or the fallenness of the world but is now bringing blessings to others, that is being given for the sake of somebody else in our church or in our community.”
