A View from the EdgeGraham Wise, via The Good Book Stall
We all find other people’s stories interesting. The questions asked at a first meeting are nearly always designed to elicit the other person’s story, where do they come from, what do they do, their family, opinions etc. An autobiography is usually a good read and this one is no exception. Biographies can be rather cerebral but an autobiography has an intimacy about it that brings it to life.
Probably best known as a Labour Peer and a former President of the Methodist Conference, The Revd Dr Leslie Griffiths was born into poverty at Burry Port near Llanelli when, in South Wales, coal was king. Deserted by his father at a young age, his mother struggled to bring up two boys in the most difficult of circumstances. Passing the 11+ set him on the road to Llanelli Grammar School, Cardiff University, itinerant preaching and, via a lectureship at Lampeter, to Methodist ministry.
Full-time ministry requires that we go where God directs us, maybe somewhere quite different from our initial presumptions. Hoping for Hong Kong, the call was to impoverished Haiti, a place and people that has remained on his and Margaret’s heart. From there to north London and on to Wesley’s Chapel, broadcasting, contacts with a myriad of influential people and opportunities to be seized. Leslie Griffiths reveals himself as a man of deep faith, perseverance and vitality, love for people and the conviction of God’s call and leading. This is a story to encourage and inspire a well-written account of an extra-ordinary journey of faith, a remarkable, fast-moving and exciting story of a life given to God and of allowing Him to lead where He will, and a life that has brought countless blessings to millions. This book is to be highly recommended.
