Prayers and reflections to encourage God-centred meetings and time to listen and reflect during meetings.
Perfect for those who attend committees.
John Wesley often asked: “What is the state of the work of God in this place?” This resource aims to provide some ways of exploring that question.
The Methodist Church is marked by the faithful service of thousands of women and men who give their time, energy and wisdom in serving the Church through committees and meetings which facilitate the Church at local and connexional level.
The Work of God in this Place emerged from a conversation with members of the Learning Network and the Chairs of District in the North West and Mann region around how we could support those who chair meetings to integrate conversation with and about God into the way a committee discusses, acts and decides.
It may be that a group’s agenda is already very full, and that adding extra time for prayer and reflection seems impossible. Groups are already working very hard. The hope is that this resource will support people rather than be an additional burden.
It also seems to be true that the more time given to listening to God, the more quickly a meeting goes.
Excellent publication which is very helpful.
Useful book possibly for house group
only flicked through and used I lot of prayers but looks a really useful, thought provoking book - fills gap in market in that it is aimed at meetings
Every church should have one for use at meetings to help us remember it is about God that we are meeting.
there were all good and what I had thought there would be like
This will answer a need in many churches. Format is easy to read and understand. I don't think people will find some of the questions easy to answer. We are all able to talk about money and property but talking about the work of God is much more difficult. It is good to be reminded that it is wise to stop sometimes and listen for God's voice in our meeting.
A very thoughtful and thought provoking book of prayers for use before church meetings.
Very pleased with this product and will find it very useful as I take up a new role as property steward.
