Even the Sparrow: A Pilgrim’s Guide to Prayer, Trust and Following Jesus
By (author) Jill Weber
What might happen if we live out of loving encounter with God and build in response to what he reveals? How can we make space to hear God and say yes to him? What if being a leader is all about being a follower? Is it really that simple?These are the questions that have led Jill Weber on the adventure of saying yes to the more of God – the invitation to really live. This honest, warm and compelling book speaks directly to those who long to encounter more of Jesus, to know how tune into the small movements of the heart, and to have trust in every moment of their lives.With wisdom and wit Jill explores prayer, discernment, vocation and leadership through her story of building and becoming a House of Prayer, offering encouragement that gives readers the confidence to say yes to what God is already doing. Jill’s story will build faith in readers and help them to discover the freedom that lies beyond that yes – of giving it all for Jesus.Even the Sparrow is both an invitation and a challenge – to walk step by step as God leads might lead us on paths that are at turns messy, complicated and inconvenient, but as we follow him the path can also be unexpected and breathtaking beauty.
