With the training of our team of listeners under way, the Good Faith Book Club's choice of the next book has special interest. Face to Face by Rev. Samuel Wells notes the importance and challenge of listening deeply in all pastoral situations, especially with people struggling to negotiate sickness, bereavement or anxiety.

Following an introduction to the nature and practice of pastoral ministry, he goes on to give 20 memorable and moving encounters from his own experience. These were both challenging and instructive. We look forward to reading about them and discussing our thoughts at the next meeting on Saturday May 25th at 2pm. As this week, we will once again be enjoying the refurbished surrounding of The Welcome Space by the church entrance. If you would like to join us, you will be very welcome.

Rev. Dr Romilly Micklem: Thu 13 Aug 5:00am

Rom refers to 2 Kings 5: 13-14. Simples!13 Naaman's servants went to him and said, "My father, if the prophet had told you to do some great thing, would you not have done it? How much more, then, when he tells you, 'Wash and be cleansed'!" 14 So he went down and dipped himself in the Jordan seven times, as the man of God had told him, and his flesh was restored and became...
