Faith, Hope and Mischief
Andrew Graystone is an everyday activist who went viral when, after the mass shooting in Christchurch, he stood outside his local mosque in Manchester with a cardboard sign saying ’I’ll watch while you pray’.
Faith, Hope and Mischief tells funny, prophetic and powerful stories of tiny acts of rebellion Andrew has carried out, that will encourage you to take risks, make holy mischief, and poke fun at the over-mighty.
This is a manual of everyday activism and an inspiration for anyone who feels powerless to make a difference.
'Andrew Graystone’s story of reaching out to his local mosque is funny, touching and lovely. His photo of the occasion went viral because the world is thirsty for evidence of kindness and connection. I’m looking forward to reading his bigger social vision, based on these gentle and heartwarming principles.' -- Victoria Coren Mitchell
'A great read ― challenging, hilarious, poignant... you feel that all the lessons of a well-lived life are on a plate here. Like sitting down for a chat with an old friend, I loved reading this book.' -- Jeremy Vine
