Healed, Restored, Forgiven
HEALED, RESTORED, FORGIVEN
John GunstoneA compilation of liturgies, prayers and readings for the ministry of healing; intended as a companion for clergy and laity involved in this developing ministry.
For those Readers who are involved it will be of particular value but all Readers should find it a useful reference book and aid to intercessions. Apart from complete service outlines for use in a wide variety of pastoral situations there are prayers for ministry teams, prayers for thanksgiving and liturgies for the ministry of reconciliation. The book concludes with an interesting and well-chosen anthology of modern readings on the theme of healing, restoration and forgiveness. In addition to providing inspiration for church-based activities, visits to homes and hospitals, there is much here which will be of value to those counselling and listening to individuals. The advice, which precedes each section, is full of gentle wisdom in relation to both opportunities and pitfalls in this central area of Christian ministry.
