Every quarter our 'Faith and Work' ministry recommends a book that will equip you with insights for your work-life. This time we recommend The One About… by Mark Greene (published by The London Institute for Contemporary Christianity, 2018).
Whatever we do, whatever we work at, every day brings Christians the possibility of something extraordinary. With Christ, thanks to the power of the Holy Spirit, every task, every situation, every encounter brims with divine potential – if only we can see it and work with Him.
In this short collection of true stories, Mark Greene looks at eight different examples of how ordinary people involve God in their everyday lives – from a young hairdresser to a retired couple travelling with their bus passes, from a geography student to a banker, from a Mum who works part-time to a member of the Prime Minister’s armed protection unit. Each story takes just a few minutes to read and highlights how God works through us in our everyday situations – sometimes even when we don’t realise it. These positive, heart-warming portraits are illuminated by brief passages of scripture, giving us fresh insight into the implications of the Biblical texts.
This book is a great resource for individual meditation or for small group discussions. Questions for reflection are posed throughout and we are encouraged to identify how God is already working in our lives and then to make ourselves more open, ready to take those opportunities.
