Carol Howard Merritt | Co-Host . . . author of Tribal Church: Ministering to the Missing Generation and Reframing Hope: Vital Ministry in a New Generation, is quickly becoming known both in the USA and around the world as one of the “go to” voices who teach the church how to engage with the changing nature of the church and culture. “I’m writing with enormous hope,” Carol explains in Tribal Church, “because a generation of young, spiritual, progressives adults is wandering, looking for a place to finally rest.” In her second book, Reframing Hope, Carol took the next step and expertly described what kind of collaborative, action-oriented faith this new generation seeks. As a pastor, Carol served churches in the rural South, a village in New England, and in urban D.C. She led a congregation that had started a food and social services program for homeless men and women, an art program for children in transitional housing, and a program providing help for sex workers. She blogs at The Huffington Post, Duke Divinity’s Faith and Leadership blog, the Christian Century, and TribalChurch.org. You can connect with Carol on Facebook or Twitter.
