Some of you kind readers may remember that I’ve been working on a book over the past year or so – exploring the I Am sayings of Jesus.
I am delighted to be able to share with you that it will be published on 19th October, 2018. The publisher, BRF, has kindly put an early page up on its shop, although I do not think you can order it yet – I’ll let you know when that is possible.
The title is, “Jesus said, “I am” – finding life in the everyday”
As we get nearer to October, I’ll tell you more about it, and hopefully share some of my work with you. But, to give you some idea – in each chapter I spend some time exploring and reflecting on a part of John’s gospel, trying to immerse us in what was going on for Jesus at the time, and how that might connect to us and our lives now. Then, I go on to offer suggestions for our response. There are some questions to prompt thought or discussion, but also creative exercises, social engagement, things to do as you go about your day, prayers for personal or community use… It’s about how we live, and how we have life.
I hope to give you some examples soon.
It has been taking me a while to do this, so thank you for your patience, and I look forward to sharing more with you soon.
