One Community’s journey through the Christian year
This book is a journey through the seasons of the year and also through the high days and holy days of the Church. In the company of saints present and past, we travel from Advent Sunday to Advent Sunday, looking for the Kingdom of Heaven and reflecting on the many ways in which God’s love reaches out to embrace and transform the world. Interspersing prose with poetry, this is a book to read slowly and reflectively, stilling our minds to the rhythms of grace and opening our hearts to the peace that passes all understanding.
“It’s wise and generous; it’s accessible and full of insight; it refreshes the soul” – from the foreword by John Pritchard Bishop of Oxford

All Christians share a mission: to be a channel for the Holy Spirit’s outpouring of God’s reconciling love into the world.

Each of the first four chapters of this absorbing and affirming volume discuss a different kind of ministry:

  • neighbourly love
  • the importance of listening to people
  • the potential we all have to speak and act prophetically
  • when and how we should forgive one another and seek reconciliation

Combining spiritual insight from writers down the centuries with moving (and often humorous) contemporary stories, Every-Person Ministry provides real encouragement to engage in practical ministry, in our own lives.
