From desolation to celebration, loneliness to love, Moments of Grace offers pithy, thought-provoking reflections on themes connecting God, faith and the journey of life. Questions for further pondering help the reader make links between head and heart, between what they believe, what they wrestle with believing and what they experience day by day. Joy MacCormick has written this book to help people have a closer encounter with God in prayer, especially those who may struggle to find a place in conventional church worship. She says: 'One of my most powerful motivations in ministry has been, and still is, "seeing the lights come on in people's eyes" as they discover new ways of thinking about and relating to the Holy, and the impact this has on their experience of "life in all its fullness".' A New Zealand Anglican priest, Joy MacCormick has worked in parishes and hospital chaplaincy, led retreats and Quiet Days, and works as a spiritual director and supervisor. She is now based at Vaughan Park Retreat and Conference Centre in Auckland, with specific responsibility for promoting appreciation of Maori language and spirituality.
