let us dream

Rachel Christophers recommends Pope Francis book Let us Dream subtitled The path to a better future which Clare Purser has read and found very useful. He urges us not to let the pain of the last year be in vain and offers realistic ways in which we can build a safer, healthier and fairer world in harmony with one another and the whole of creation.

Ruth Bradshaw

recommends the books of Francine Rivers - especially  “Redeeming Love” and “Lineage of Grace” . 

“Redeeming Love” re-enacts the story of Hosea in the Old Testament, in the time of the California gold-rush.  It reveals God's patience and unconditional love so powerfully.

“Lineage of Grace” is the stories of 5 women in the Bible who are all in the lineage of Jesus, all unlikely characters chosen by God.

Ruth has these books, and other ones by Francine Rivers, if folks would like to borrow them.
