Gary Shockley has identified critical issues essential for personal development and courageous ministry. Reading this text will be a delightful glimpse into the life of a dedicated and transformational leader.--G. Edwin Zeiders
Think how much faster I could go, ' said the young bird returning to its nest after testing its wings, 'if there were not wind and air to slow me down.' Gary Shockley is a wise rare bird who reminds us that the wind and the air enable us to fly in the first place and that we soar best when we are guided by the unpredictable gusts of the Spirit.--Leonard Sweet
Truly a powerful book to read. The accounts in this book invite the reader to not only walk alongside Gary, but also to evaluate his or her own place in the book and in God's incredible story for us all. This is not a textbook on how to do ministry, it is a heart book on how to discover the pure joy, peace and freedom that comes for those who learn to meander with God. If you aren't challenged or convicted then you aren't reading! This book is a passionate invitation for those who are busy defining themselves by what they do instead of by who they are.--Tim May, Pastor
There is so much wisdom for leaders in these pages. In a world in which people feel the constant need to rush, hurry, achieve, accomplish, do, and get somewhere fast, we are reminded that there is a way of leading that imitates Moses and Jesus: meandering with a purpose.--N. Graham Standish
This is an account of Gary Shockley's journey from drivenness to 'meandering' as a more Christ-like way of leading. Meandering encompasses both accountability and an openness to God and others along the way. There is a valuable message here--Lovett H. Weems Jr.
