Ann Morisy reviews For Good: The Church and the future of welfare by Sam Wells… https://t.co/giHHhvjCgh
Author(s): Rev. Becca Stevens
Becca Stevens, best-selling author, high-profile social activist and priest, extols the transformative power of love in this inspiring collection of spiritual reflections. "Love is my grounding," says Becca Stevens. "Love is the most powerful source for social change in the world. Love heals. I'm not called to change the world. I am called to love it."
Taking the form of personal and intimate letters, Becca considers the signposts that we need to guide us along the spiritual path, such as courage, humility, forgiveness, compassion, and faithfulness.
She writes of her own experience of finding and following these simple road signs and her gratitude for those who enabled her to find them. In her own words, 'I want to pass along through these letters a tradition of priesthood that is grounded in the idea that love heals and healing is the most central sacrament of the church."
Ideal reading for Lent, Letters from the Farm shows us how to walk the spiritual path more gracefully and intentionally and how to avoid the pitfalls of disillusionment and distraction.
Becca Stevens is an Episcopal priest, university chaplain and the founder of Magdalene and Thistle Farms, residential communities of women who have survived prostitution, trafficking and addiction. She has been featured in the New York Times and the Oprah Magazine, and in 2011 was recognised by the White House as a Champions of Change for violence against women.
