Dominic is the founder of Pursuing Faith and the author of a new book Your Longing Has a Name: Come Alive to the Story You Were Made For where he uses 2 Peter 1:5-8, the exact verses we are mediating on, to show us how our souls can and should flourish in difficult times. Dominic has a master’s in theology from the University of Oxford and has served as a pastor, a professor and a missionary.   Take a few minutes to meditate on 2 Peter 1:5-8 and then tune into this interview to hear where God led Dominic.   Some highlights from our conversation: How God led Dominic to write an entire book on 4 verses of Scripture. What flourishing looks like according to Jesus – and how it’s very different than what the world says flourishing is. What Peter means when he tells us to, “make every effort.” What goodness is, according to Scripture, and how we can find goodness in our lives. How Pursuing Faith is helping those who are deconstructing. (If you know someone who is deconstructing or has walked away from the faith all together, this ministry will be a gift to you.)
