Well here we are well and truly in British Springtime. As I write the rain is pouring down and the heating is back on at Life!
But the sun will shine again! God has promised "He has shown kindness by giving you rain from heaven and crops in their seasons; he provides you with plenty of food and fills your heart with joy" Acts 14:17 (NIV)
We need the rainy seasons to feed us when its hot and dry later on, just the way in our spiritual life we have to learn to live through the storms that come, because it's in those times we learn more about the one who says "peace, be still" to our troubled heart and mind.
It's about those life storms that Edward Muttema writes in his new book 'God is in the Business of PIcking up the Pieces'. You can come along to our next 'Meet The Author' with Edward on Saturday 23rd April from 10am-1pm and he will be happy to talk with you and if you want to buy the book, sign it for you as well.
Edward lives locally and attends church in Weston-super-Mare. He writes from the heart and inspires his readers to face the challenges of life with faith and hope.
"We have all been bruised, broken, and hurt. It is the stuff that life is made of. A family tradgedy, a failed marriage, a debilitating disease, the loss of a loved one. You may have reached the end of your tether - distraught, helpless, and beyond pain. This is real, and for some, unless something dramatic happens, there is no light at the end of the tunnel. This book challenges you to face the rigors of life head-on. It offers an alternative. A realization that behind every brokenness is a God whose business is picking up the pices, your broken pieces - a God who is competent to deal with your hurt, pain and dissapointment, ready to restore the broken and heal the fainthearted..."
The book is priced at £12.95 and already available from Life.
Come along on 23rd April between 10am and 1pm to find out more.
There will, as always, be tea and coffee flowing and room to sit and chat and meet with new friends and old.
