Abstract

"Transformational Detours: A Journey with Lydia Through God’s Power Within" is a call for Christian leaders to return to the roots of their heritage and follow the example of Lydia, Paul’s first European convert and church leader, who was a worshipper of God, student of prayer, eager listener, responder to truth, and sharer of talents and resources. By engaging the scriptural imagination, this thesis uses an interdisciplinary method through the genre of epistles to weave together stories of scriptural figures, Wesleyan founders, and the author’s own experiences to provide a foundation upon which leaders may rediscover God’s power within as described in Ephesians 3:20 which “is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine.”
