Do you feel as if you have been "burned" by the church and its institutions? Or have you stayed away for fear of being "burned"? In either case, you are not alone. Confidence in the church and its institutions has plummeted since the turn of the century, especially among the younger generation. The rush to judgment is premature. In David McKenna's growing years, he had to go through the hoops and hurdles of a radical holiness tabernacle. At the time, the human standards were odious. But now, from the perspective of seventy years or more, he can see how the threads of grace were being woven together into the whole cloth of God's perfect will for his life. With confidence, then, he only asks that this young generation give the church a chance. It is imperfect, but it is still an instrument of the grace of God. With full candor and full confidence, then, McKenna offers his spiritual odyssey as witness to the triumphs of God's grace.
