Adam McHugh’s Introverts in the Church: Finding Our Place in an Extroverted Culture (Downers Grove, IL: IVP, 2009). McHugh shows that introverts need not feel out of place in the local church and provides a number of tips on how to thrive in an often-extroverted environment. Of particular interest to me were the chapter on introversion and community, and the two chapters on leading as an introvert. So if you’re someone who’d much rather discuss your faith one-on-one, or someone who prefers reflective silence to endless chorus-singing, do give McHugh’s book a read. It might prove to be a survival guide!
About Providence, Divine Action and the Church
In this blog, Terry J. Wright posts thoughts and shares research on the Christian doctrine of providence. This doctrine testifies to God’s provision for all things through creation’s high priest, the man Christ Jesus. However, the precise meaning and manner of this provision is a perpetually open question, and this blog is a forum for discussion of the many issues relating to providence and the place of the Church within God’s action.
