Where Life and Meaning Meet

From The Intersection with Guy Sayles

At the intersections of life’s demands and the longing for meaning, there’s often a tangle of traffic and a lot of noise; there’s a great deal of movement, but little sense of direction.

In the confusing clatter of our culture, my hope is to help us live and work with a sense of purpose and hope; to explore questions of values and spirit; and to discern the truth, beauty, and goodness which “hide in plain sight” all around us.

Writer, Speaker, Consultant

Guy Sayles

In my writing, speaking and consulting, I explore the dynamics of a flourishing life, think about hard ethical issues, and reflect on how to align our practices with our values.

After more than 30 years in pastoral ministry, I teach at Mars Hill University and am an adjunct member of the faculty of the Divinity School at Gardner Webb University. I’m also a congregational and leadership consultant affiliated with the Center for Healthy Churches and a member of the Board of Directors of the Baptist Center for Ethics.

The Weather of the Heart

I’ve spent the last couple of days in Hot Springs. I doubt that many people imagine that the portal to heaven looks like this tiny town in the mountains of Western North Carolina, but I do.  It’s nestled on the French Broad River which is my personal Jordan. Wading in...
