Risking Everything

Robin Greenwood

$31.99

Paperback
"How can Christian living be distinctive without becoming too insular? How can it be respectful and open to all without losing its character?" "In Risking Everything, Robin Greenwood seeks to respond to these questions. He focuses on God's call for Christian communities to indulge in the risky business of vulnerable, loving relationships, to be effective signs and agents of mission in the world. The God who is a community of mutual love invites us to form attractive ways of companionship. Fellowship that allows each person an equal but different place in the Church, Greenwood believes, can model the love that God offers, enhancing all human life."--BOOK JACKET.

- Publisher This book provides a Lent course for churches to reflect on themselves and develop greater awareness and practice of love, integrity, learning, and character. The short chapters interweave with the liturgical events of the church's year through Lent to Pentecost and emphasis is placed on seeing this period as a single movement and a time for renewal. Each one of us is challenged to let go of our addictions, strengths and ways of coping, to risk being out of our depth in the current of God's stream of grace. The book incorporates short, accessible chapters, including practical activities and advice which can be used as a resource in local churches as part of planning a series of services or meetings in this period or alternatively each section is also designed so that individual readers can use it for Lent and Easter reflection.
