P 98 When the Church Says 'No'

Facing not being selected for church office - whether that is for ordained ministry, recognised office or informal leadership responsibility - is like journeying through a strange country, and even the Bible does not easily unfold like a map to guide us.

Drawing on many years' experience in working with people on this journey, Helen Thorp engages with the experience and with the hard but profound biblical material on rejection. She offers wise advice and pastoral tools for those accompanying others on the road.
