Behind the theme of this new volume in the popular annual Pray Now series, is the belief that everyone has a story to tell, no matter what age or stage of life they are at, and that in worship we weave our stories into the bigger story of God. Our stories are shaped by encounters with other people, with the physical world, with the variety of our own experiences and emotions, and with God. This volume offers a dynamic resource for prayer and reflection that will enable a deeper understanding of how all these kinds of encounters shape us. More than seventy short sections, each containing a scripture quotation, prayers for morning and evening, a short meditation, suggested scripture readings and a blessing, explore a rich variety of encounters: * Between Jesus and others in the Gospels - disciples, women, the young, the old, critics, enemies * The people we encounter - friends, neighbours, colleagues, family, strangers, the hostile * Encounters with the physical world - animals, weather, traffic jams, crowded cities, empty spaces * Encounters with ourselves - success, disaster, loneliness, identity, hope, fear, mystery and more * Encounters with God in prayer - how Christians across the centuries, including Julian of Norwich, St Benedict, Martin Luther, Wesley, C S Lewis and others understood and practiced prayer. Stories of Encounter is the Church of Scotland's theme for 2018 that will inform its worship and its mission throughout the coming year. At its heart is a desire to help people to tell their stories, to share those stories with others and with their communities, to reflect on their journeys of faith and ultimately their stories of encounters with God. This dynamic collection of newly written prayers, meditations and blessings will be a welcome aid for worship, for small group devotions and for personal discipleship.
