Movings of Divine Love
Movings of Divine Love: The Love of God in the Letters of John Woolman
The mystical experience contains an invitation to action. From the place of deep prayer arises our call to be ministers. In the Silence we are given much, and much will be asked of us. To minister requires the gifts of humility and perseverance and the recognition that though we may be invited to do what we find difficult, it is not difficult for God.
This book makes available many of the letters of John Woolman and offers Drew Lawson’s reflections on themes arising from Woolman’s letters in the light of Lawson’s own experience of the spiritual journey. The book investigates the following themes: the love of God, brokenness, abandonment to God, being led through God’s love, crucifixion (paying the price of faithfulness), and resurrection. Woolman’s words describe the eternal in ordinary events and resonate across time.Author: Drew Lawson
