Jesus, connection and story: past, present and future
Paperback |144 pp |216 x 135 mm
There could be no better moment for this book, which reminds us that the tangle and connectedness of human lives cannot be broken, and Gods relationship with us knows no limits or barriers.
Bishop Rachels accounts of her encounters with the living Word through friends and communities are not only easily accessible but render the biblical stories she relates refreshingly compelling.
Encounters is a rare thing: a book by a bishop written from the inside out. Bishop Rachel doesnt preach, she reflects on scripture, on life, on God with humour and warmth, with honesty and vulnerability and insight. A perfect book for the middle of a pandemic.
Through reflections on encounters between Jesus and those he met, as described in the gospels, and significant encounters with people and places in her personal journey with God, Bishop Rachel Treweek encourages us to make new connections in our own story and to contemplate the God of encounter.
Each chapter of this carefully-crafted book ends with a prayer and a space for you to journal your own reflections.
