Callouts are a custom editor option specific to our site. The purpose of callout text is to re-iterate important sentences of the content. Callout text appears in a large font alongside the page’s main content in order to grab the reader’s attention and indicate the article’s topic.
A callout is created using a custom button in the editor. This also alters the styling within the editor as well so you can tell a normal paragraph from a callout paragraph. This button is located on the 2nd row of the editor toolbar, so you don’t have to remember a shortcode. How easy is that?
Adding a Callout
Add a callout by placing your cursor in the editor where you’d like the callout to appear, click the callout button on the second row of the toolbar, add text, select an alignment then click OK. We recommend adding callouts last after you’ve pasted/written your content.
Callout text can be center, right, or left aligned depending on how you want it to display. Generally only use one or two callouts on a page. Center aligned Callout text does not necessarily need to be re-iterated content, and can be a longer length that left and right callouts.
- Your content should make sense without callouts. Callouts add to existing content.
- Feel free to add quotation marks if you are drawing attention to an in-line quote.
- Do not use a left aligned callout first on a page or post.
- Do not use where a block quote would be more appropriate.
- Do not add any formatting to the callout text (bold, italics, underline).
- Do not add any images to a callout.
- Do not use large paragraphs in callouts. Typically one sentence is enough.
Callouts in Action
You will not have this many callouts in such a small section. This is just an example.
Story is the heartbeat of God, the primary form for revealing who we are, who God is, how the world is broken, and how God intends to restore us and the world. We believe, too, that no one escapes harm over the course of the their lifetime. Therefore we all have stories that need healing and restoration. Unfortunately, there are very few contexts in which the full extent of harm and heartache in the human experience can be explored in a way that brings healing. Many therapists are not equipped to address the narrative dimensions at the heart of human brokenness, and many churches and communities avoid the conversations out of fear, discomfort, or lack of training. So we live in a world of silos where narrative therapy, inner healing, and spiritual warfare are seldom integrated for the hope for restoration.
Many therapists are not equipped to address the narrative dimensions at the heart…
Our purpose is to step into this gap to offer story exploration experiences and to train more leaders to address harm and tragedy with informed care and holistic engagement, identifying the emotional, spiritual, and relational impacts of our core stories of neglect, loss, betrayal, or outright abuse and violence. And in this process, something truly transformative happens: we find the hope of redemption. Courageously stepping into stories of pain and harm is the very place that true healing and restoration occurs.

The mission of The Allender Center is to foster redemption and healing in individuals, couples, and communities by helping them tell their stories with awareness and integrity while also training leaders and professionals to engage the stories of others with courage, artistry, and care.
Courageously stepping into stories of pain and harm is the very place that true healing and restoration occurs
In fulfilling this mission, we are committed to: boldly engaging the impact of trauma and abuse on the human heart, providing healing and teaching to individuals, couples, and communities, and training professionals to listen and enter into stories in a way that facilitates the transformation and hope of the gospel.
The Allender Center, a subsidiary of The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology and a nonprofit 501(c)(3) has grown exponentially as a respected resource for training and transformation since its founding in 2011. As more people recognize the reality of abuse and trauma in our culture, the need for holistic training and true healing is more important than ever. Our hope is to meet this increased need with accessible content, more regional offerings, and expanded leadership and training models.
