Deb and Alan Hirsch

This is Deb Hirsch along with D and I. If you've been around the blog for a while, you know that one of SPACE's influences was the book, The Shaping of Things to Come, co-written by Deb's husband Alan.

When I found out that the Hirschs were going to be at Connect, I emailed Alan to see if they might be able to spare just a bit of time to talk to our team. Both Alan and Deb came in one evening and interacted with our team for about an hour, talking about responsibility, the future and what makes a church. On another evening, some of our team hung out with Deb while she shared how she became a Christ follower. And other students got to have a meal with them. And some found them on the playground. And on and on.

They loved sharing their lives with our team. And despite writing a few huge books, speaking all over the world and being one of the most creative and innovative thinkers about mission, Church and culture today, they are real people who love helping others live life.
