Rising from the Ashes

As my handle Sibbesian suggests I love those words of Isaiah fulfilled in Jesus that he will not break the bruised reed or extinguish the smoking flax. Harry Reeder’s book ‘From Embers to a Flame’ has caused me to think about those words not only in a personal context but also in the context of the church. Reeder’s book is about the revitalisation of what to the human eye are dying churches. Here in this book he helps the reader to think through biblical principles that he has put into effect in his own ministry. It is a helpful book that is of value to any church leader. As someone involved in a small church there was much here that we have considered but there was also a lot of food for thought, a lot to challenge and yes, inspire. For those in difficult church situations it offers no magic bullet but it does offer hope for those prepared to commit themselves to seeing the local church revitalised.
