Seeds of Joy: The Healing Power of Story-Prayer
Those who minister in contexts of trauma hear stories of personal struggle and tragedy almost daily. We have heard Christ's promise that he is present in these stories, but where? And how can we gently and safely invite others back into their greatest pains to find him?
Dorothy Mathieson and her husband, George, have spent decades developing the LIFE story healing process in order to give a practical, reliable answer to that aching question. Decades of ministry first in the world's poorest communities, then with international students from countries hostile to Christianity, and then with weary and overburdened ministers, compelled the Mathiesons to develop the process that has already touched so many lives.
Now, Dorothy offers the LIFE story healing process to those beyond the reach of her Australia-based ministry. This general-audience book can help both ministers and laity become a healing presence for their neighbors-- not through therapy or good advice, but through listening and prayer in the presence of Jesus.
