Finding Epic Adventure in Every Day Life

Bill Couchenour and Ed Bahler

There’s a growing tension to find answers to the question “How do I find meaning in the Sacred and connect it to my life?” Research highlights a widening gap between how we’ve lived out our faith and how we develop meaning through those practices. Unleashed! is a beginning conversation to a more thoughtful and fulfilling walk.

Unleashed! encourages living in the paradox, practicing faith beyond a to-do list, and connecting the whole of life with the Sacred. In our internet, macro/micro connected world we search for ways to weave the practices of our faith throughout life. Unleashed! journeys through the conundrum of practicing the traditional Christian disciplines while living in the everyday. It’s less about becoming something and more about losing ourselves to find ourselves Unleashed!
