How To Survive a Shipwreck

September 25, 2016 - October 30, 2016

Life is turbulent. On that we can all agree. Dashed dreams. Broken relationships. Wounds from the past. An ever-changing and divisive cultural and political landscape. There are so many ways life can send us crashing against the rocks. Sometimes life can feel like one, big, giant, endless shipwreck. And when it comes to shipwrecks, it’s really not a matter of if, but when. We all face shipwrecks in life. And when we do, the only question worth asking is, “How do we survive a shipwreck?"
This series was inspired by Johnathan Martin's book of the same title.
