Bill Scarrott wants to assist people with the move beyond basic religious survival.
With roots in a conservative Baptist community, Bill’s own spiritual journey began in his teen years with the divorce of his Christian parents. Torn between what people said and how they lived, he cried out to God to know whether or not all he had learned as a child was a lie. In the years that followed God led Bill from those halls of pain to a place where he knew beyond a doubt that God was good, and that Jesus was alive.
Always ready for another adventure, Bill has followed his Master’s voice from the waves of the Oregon coast where he was baptized, to the deserts of the Middle East, and the shores of West Africa.
Bill has come away from his travels with more than just memories. While customs agents have stamped his passport, God has imprinted on Bill’s heart a burden for the poor and forgotten, and a burning desire to see his Christian brothers and sisters move from a simple belief in “doing the right things” to an experience with the risen Christ.
Bill began blogging about four years ago at thejesussociety.com. He lives in Alberta, Canada with his wife Karen and two daughters, Kaitlyn and Alyssa.
