Ever ask yourself, “Who are these people who write for Forward in Christ?” Through this series, you can find out.
“I am incredibly fascinated by people and how their experiences—positive or negative—have shaped who they are,” says Greg Lyon, Forward in Christ’s newest Bible study writer. “I love listening to people’s stories and then helping them put the pieces together of how God is working in their lives.”
Lyon spends much of each day doing just that. As a campus pastor at Wisconsin Lutheran College, Milwaukee, Wis., his primary role is to be a pastoral shepherd for the college’s students. He notes, “My calendar usually fills up with one-on-one Bible studies, counseling, meet and greets, opportunities to build relationships, things like that. I also field a fair amount of theological questions. Many of our students who are lifelong Christians might have questions that they’ve had for a long time but have always been afraid to ask. I enjoy getting into those discussions. Many college students are also getting to the point where they are asking themselves, ‘What do I believe?’ It is a blessing for these students to have a place where they can explore these questions surrounded by biblical truth.”
Lyon will use these experiences as he presents his first Bible study series for Forward in Christ, which will use biblical narratives to dive deeper into common struggles among Christians, including anxiety, depression, guilt, grief, and trauma.
