Hirsch and Catchim provide an insightful and challenging work in The Permanent Revolution. It explores the five-fold spiritual gifts given in The Bible, Ephesians 4.
The authors communicate that the community of faith has commonly had a difficult time knowing how to respond, or what to do, with apostles-like and prophetic-like people.
This is a time to engage a rapidly changing world and to learn from others; we need to allow, listen, and consider voices other than our own.
- Do you have people in your life that represent these five categories of giftings/tendencies?
- Who can you ask to learn from?
- Which of the five gifts listed in Ephesians four do you identify with?
