Here are Editor Louise Willmot's thoughts on the latest issue; “It can be hard to recognise our own personal gifts, indeed more than one interviewee for this issue expressed concern that they did not have a gift worthy of talking about. I hope you will join me in disagreeing with them and find many stories to inspire you to consider what your personal gifts are and how you can release them.
“As James Cary points out in our opening article, being witnesses to the Gospel of Jesus Christ is something we need to do together ̶ in the workplace, in the home and society at large. James was reflecting on the message he took away from the presentation on the ‘Setting God’s People Free’ report at General Synod and you can find out more about that in our interview with one of its authors, Alison Coulter.
“If you find yourself mulling over your gifts as you sit sipping something cold in the (hopefully) warm summer sunshine, you may like to consider your next steps in your personal journey. We’ve also included a few ideas to help you do that.
“And just as 98 per cent of the Church of England is laity, so is the balance of contributions to this issue of Manna. As Alison says, it is the small things that will add up to make a difference. Just think what we can achieve.”
