Purpose 165: Glen Packiam: How Your Story Becomes Sacred In The Hands Of Jesus
Blessed, Broken, Given – these three words come from the gospels, and they’re the words that describe what Jesus does when he has bread in his hands. Luke’s gospel, in particular, tells three stories of Jesus taking bread, blessing it, breaking it, and giving it.
Our guest today, Glenn Packiam, wrote a soon-to-be-released book, Blessed Broken Given: How Your Story Becomes Sacred In The Hands Of Jesus.
Jesus describes Himself as the “bread of Heaven”, and each word – blessed, broken, given – is going to speak to us in a particular way. This book is about encouraging people to see the glory in the ordinary, the grace in the midst of their mess, and purpose in each moment of the day.
After listening to this episode, you’ll understand why he says the last twelve years have been a really beautiful journey of being humbled and discovering what it means to serve. You’ll understand how God truly sees us, and how we can meet people where they are.
