Ken Whitt's 'God Is Just Love' to be Published by Read the Spirit Books
ENOIA, Ga.: How can people of faith foster love and resilience in our children while building sustainable, diverse communities? That's the big question Ken Whitt answers in his brand new book, "God Is Just Love: Building Spiritual Resilience and Sustainable Communities for the Sake of Our Children and Creation" by Read the Spirit books, an imprint of Front Edge Publishing. Through wisdom he has gleaned from scientists, scholars and lots of real families, Ken shows how God's love is a hopeful compass in our lives. He encourages enjoying stories, songs and explorations of the natural world with children—and closes with "100 Things Families Can Do To Find Hope and Be Love."
This book is big on hope—and even bigger on love that supports everyone who is concerned about the future world our children will inherit. Because of the big challenges we all face—from climate change to ever-deepening poverty in many regions of the world—we need to share big ideas and make big decisions. Ken invites his readers on a journey toward solutions where God's guidance is our compass.
Ken Whitt is the Executive Director of Traces of God Ministries, a nonprofit spiritual formation center founded after his retirement from 40 years of service to American Baptist Churches (ABC/USA). Ken's ministries have focused on nurturing children, youth and families, mission trips, prayer and efforts to build peace and justice. Through the ABC, he served on the General Board, the Board of International Ministries and the National Minister's Council. His love of global diversity extends from the communities with which he works—to the global variety of woods that fill his woodworking shop at home. Ken has four children and 12 grandchildren. His wife, Kathy, is a stained-glass artist, weaver, gardener and spiritual director. They live in the Hocking Hills region of southeastern Ohio.
