Bitesize Beliefs : Double Jointed
32pp Full Colour throughout
Ever felt that it would be great to be a Christian on a desert island? That too many pressures are exerted on us by being part of ‘church’ – whatever form that might take? And what about the fear of getting too involved with other people? Will we end up doing things we don’t want to do?
‘DOUBLE JOINTED’ looks at the whole issue of involvement in the Body of Christ. Why is it some Christians don’t want to be part of a local expression of God’s family. Why do others having become involved start to back off? What about the ‘Lone-Ranger Christians’ or someone who flits between different churches?
As we begin to understand God’s original purpose when He established the Church, maybe we’ll recognise He really does know best, and it’s our ways and attitudes that require change if we’re going to enjoy an abundant life.

Ten years ago I first published 'the 'Community Prayer Diary', 30,000 copies across the UK. The heart was simple, how do we pray for those people who make our community work ? From Doctors to Dentists, Police Officers to Council Leaders, From Farmers to Pastors, those offering to counsel to those dealing with abuse in the home. We interact and benefit from the roles people play in our community every day.
If we take 1 Timothy 2:1-2 seriously, we should 'Pray for those in Authority'. This Prayer Guide will help you do just that. You'll be able to record the names of people in key positions in your community and pray for them through the week, without forgetting anyone. Even better as you find out who they are, you'll have the opportunity to gently let them know they are being prayed for.
There's also some teaching on Prayer Walking and a lovely reference section of praying scripture at the back.
It's an ideal resource for everyone in the local Church to pray effectively for everyone doing something important in the community around them.
