FOOD FOR THOUGHT

God of transforming welcomes,
who continually reaches out to bring Good News to those who need it
And invites us to participate in the continuing work of Jesus;
May we so act in generosity of spirit, and loving concern for others
That we may become members of your community of grace,
Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer.
Amen.

A GOOD READ

Once upon a time our society was rich in stories. They united us and helped us to understand the world and ourselves. We called them myths. Today, we have a myth gap.
Does that matter? Alex Evans argues powerfully and persuasively that it does. In this time of global crisis and transition– mass migration, inequality, resource scarcity, and climate change – it is only by finding new myths, those that speak to us of renewal and restoration, that we will navigate our way to a better future. It is stories, rather than facts and pie-charts, that have the power to animate us and bring us together to change the world.
