I’m currently reading this novel by Christian writer Nick Page. It brings together a lot of good current thinking and research into why the Church is failing. I included quotations from it in my sermons at both St Salvador’s, Stenhouse and the Church of the Good Shepherd, Murrayfield these last couple of weeks.
The challenge is, as the character Lydia says in the novel, not to tell people about the good news about Jesus. We have to be the good news.
