FINDING STABILITY IN COMPLEX IDENTITY

In the years I’ve spent leading sessions about Third Culture Kids, I’ve mistakenly referred to the traits we derive from growing up between worlds in the context of ministry as our “Identity.”


We tend to be geographically aware. Adaptable. Multiligual. Inclusive. Relational. Agents of change. That’s who we are—what defines us—right?


Wrong. Though it’s an easy conclusion to reach, it’s also i...

“God layers good over the bad. It's what he does. And the more of the bad life dishes out, the more good God dishes out too. We just get so blinded--legitimately--by what hurts that we can't see the good brightening the darkness.”
Michele Phoenix

“There was something magical about the convergence of effort, inspiration, and accomplishment, a magic amplified by the presence of spectators who laughed, gasped, and cried on cue. I felt the performance like a constant hum in my marrow, a low-key intensity of purpose and emotion that was at once galvanizing and calming.”
Michèle Phoenix, In Broken Places

“He's lying," said my daughterness. "He'll hurt you,"said my woundedness. "He doesn't know how warped your really are," said my brokenness. "You can't afford to trust him," said my betrayedness.”
Michèle Phoenix, In Broken Places
