New edition with extra chapter looking at the Church in crisis, written during Covid-19.
Our world needs the Church, like never before, to be full of hope. But the Church is not always what it could be. Perhaps we need a declutter. A clear-out. A detox.
We all collect excess stuff – books, clothes, cars, gadgets… thoughts, habits, scars, traditions… Sometimes, it’s good to strip things back a bit. It’s healthy to occasionally explore our past and consider a fresh purpose for the future.
To realign ourselves with the plan that our creator God has already set out for us.
To return to the start again.
To go back a couple of millennia to discover what the original Church looked like, so we can remember and reset.
