the grand paradox: an interview with ken wytsma
Ken Wytsma is the founder of The Justice Conference, a pastor, and the president of Kilns College in Bend, Oregon. Recently I had the chance to talk with him about his latest book, The Grand Parodox: The Messiness of Life, the Mystery of God, and the Necessity of Faith.
ST: What inspires you to keep going in times of doubt?
KW: On several occasions I’ve asked the girls if they know that the most important thing at the core of their dad is that I trust God and seek to be in the right place at the right time on a daily basis (in God’s will). It’s more important to me that they know my heart, core value and that I have a relationship with God than that they see me engaged in behaviors. Going to church, praying, reading my bible etc. are all things that I believe are good for my daughters, but even if they never saw those parts of me, them knowing my heart for God reigns supreme is what I’d want them to take into adulthood. If they see that, my life is a testimony and the best advice (or example) they could take into adulthood.
