Excerpts from An Alphabet for Change

Here are a couple of excerpts from this book:

TO THE READER

There are twenty-six attributes and practices outlined in this book, one corresponding to each letter of the English alphabet. I have dedicated a short chapter to each of these.

My intention is for the reader to take a chapter a day or one each week, much like a devotional, which will allow for a regular cadence of personal reflection time. In an effort to try to help in this regard, I’ve included a section at the end of each chapter entitled, “Stepping Toward Transformation.” This is my way of trying to provide some practical ways in which you may lean into the attribute or practice presented.

GENTLENESS

“What if we chose gentleness in our responses, both in words and deeds? What would that look like? I think it would look a lot like maturity. Gentleness is named in the Scriptures as one of the Fruit of the Spirit. Have you ever seen ripe fruit on a little sapling? No. Fruit is the result of a tree or plant that is both healthy and mature. Likewise, the Fruit of the Spirit is displayed in someone who is healthy and mature.

Unfortunately, our world is becoming vastly devoid of gentleness. No place is this more evident than today’s social media. Political posts, conspiracy posts, I’m-right-you’re-wrong posts—they seem to be the dominant themes across all of the popular platforms. It seems there is no longer room for difference of opinion nor cordial debate. Social media has provided humanity the means to spew our toxic rhetoric and responses at one another in an unprecedented manner.

Gentleness calls for a different response.

Gentleness does not constitute losing one’s convictions or identity. It is a matter of responding with a tenderness of the heart. It is listening to others, not only hearing them, but also looking for understanding.”

Enjoy! –Wren
