      Restoring The Shack

    Based on Best-Selling Book

    Join the author Paul Young on an adventure to explore the metaphor of "The Shack" as the heart and soul of a human being that is broken, and how despite what many of us have been taught, God doesn't sit up on high waiting for us to get our lives together, but comes from within our own brokenness to heal us and draw us closer to him. Learn how the story went from being a story written solely for his children as an expression of how God had changed his life, to the NY Times Bestseller. Through discussion and reflection you may just discover answers to the questions of pain and suffering you have experienced, and move to place of real, lasting healing, too.
