 A road not travelled…

Like this photograph I took in Donegal a few years ago, I'm on a road I haven't travelled before. All I know is that I have stepped out on a journey with God, with the knowledge that He has given me insights into something very significant, important, for the body of Christ in Ireland: how, what has been called an ‘empire spirit’ has profoundly and negatively influenced Irish society - politically and spiritually - for centuries. In the words of one senior Church leader, “It provides a new narrative” for the way forward for inter-church discussions, for the healing of historic wounds. 

I would add to that by saying, that it is also a wake-up call to the church in Ireland. We are in a spiritual battle and God is alerting us as to where the battle lines are truly drawn. It is not against “flesh and blood”, “us v them”. That is what satan has led us to believe! Rather, it's against him and the undermining of God's purposes for Ireland - through us, the church!

I am of course thinking about my recently published book A Tree has Roots: the journey God has taken me on to write it; the way ahead regarding it; its distribution and most importantly the response God wants us to make for His future Kingdom purposes here!

Regarding that, I am very aware of my need for your prayers:

  • For stamina as I continue to grapple with the symptoms of long covid.

  • For Divine favour in my writing to and conversations with church and ministry leaders.

  • I realise the need to meet with groups of people - small or large in number. What God has given me an understanding of ideally needs to be communicated face-to-face with people. Let me know if you can arrange a meeting or connect me with a group.

  • That Christian Bookshops will have it available for sale. You can ask your local Christian Bookshop to have it in stock. If you want a complimentary copy to give to the owner, I can send you one. Amazon is in the process of making it available online. The main UK Christian distributor Kingsway CLC now have it catalogued.

  • I would love to have a group meeting on a fairly regular basis to pray into this stronghold. 2 Cor. 10:4, 5. That requires a venue!

  • Would you prayerfully consider getting a few people together to discuss the book and pray? At the back of the book are a series of questions, Points to Ponder, for individual consideration or group discussion. One of the reasons why I am offering it at the reduced cost mentioned below.

Thank you,
