Distinctly WelcomingMary Bartholomew, via The Good Book Stall
A telling phrase in the Foreword, written by Joy Madeiros, is ‘while the existence and even the activities of faith groups are acceptable, the faith of the faith groups is still problematic.
Richard Sudworth has some refreshing views on this and other aspects of living in a multifaith society which he sets out in an unusual way, following each chapter with various symbols representing for instance a Bible passage that he terms ‘A La Carte’ and others requiring action, research, further reading and web browsing.
I enjoyed the boxed passages within the chapters where the author questions what he has just been saying, or gives an example from his own experience of the point he is making. So many useful points too. Among others that we should not talk at people, that we should give them space and listen to them. That when we do speak that we are careful that we are being understood in the way we intend – a good lesson for many circumstances. The Distinctly Welcoming tips throughout are like a pr&éacute;cis of the foregoing chapter and are worthy of particular note, in fact this whole book should be read by all Christians, for wherever we live in Britain these days there are ‘neighbours’ from other faiths.
