Serving without Sinking : John Hindley
Shows busy Christians how to serve joyfully, not wearily.
Many of us are serving, and feel like we’re sinking. We feel joyless, weary and burdened. John Hindley shows how Jesus was telling the truth when He offered people an “easy yoke”—a way of serving Him that is joyful and liberating. He explains why serving is so often joyless—and how our identity in Christ changes everything. If you are serving, but sometimes feel as though you’re sinking… you need this book! If you know someone who has burn out, or is heading in that direction…they need this book too.
“This fresh, warm, honest, book did me good. It is richly filled with grace, informed by a gritty realism, and shot through with pastoral perceptiveness. There is something in it for every Christian man and woman at every stage of life”. – Christopher Ash, Director of the Proclamation Trust’s Cornhill Training Course and author of Pure Joy and Married for God
“Buy it! … Read it! … Pass it on! …. The open heart surgery at the start is painful but necessary. After that, the route to joyful service is focussed entirely on Jesus’ service of us, and will transform the way you think about your own service. I wish I’d read this book 20 years ago!” – Carrie Sandom, Associate Minister for Women and Pastoral Care at St John’s Church, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, and author of Different by Design
