This is a book of moments when it became clear that God was present, tangibly or retrospectively, in ordinary events or extraordinary coincidences. It is intended as an encouragement to all who minister and is a reminder of why we do what we do, especially should we ever feel discouraged, underappreciated, bewildered. It seeks to create fresh perspective on the humble and surprising ways God shows up. Priests and pastoral caregivers often accompany people who are struggling to negotiate experiences of sickness, bereavement or anxiety. There are no easy answers in such situations. The process of being present, listening and responding is demanding and requires skills and wisdom beyond ministers' own experience. Often, caregivers feel they receive more than they give in such encounters. Sam Wells reflects theologically and pastorally on twenty such encounters that were both hugely challenging and hugely instructive for him. The result is a book of profound practical wisdom and understanding that will inform and enrich pastoral ministry for all who read it. An extended introduction on the nature and practice of pastoral ministry introduces these memorable and moving accounts.
