Our Servant Leader of the Week is Stephen Muse, Ph.D., Co-Director of the Turner Ministry Resource Center, a division of the Pastoral Institute. Recently, Stephen published his fourth book, Being Bread.
He writes, “If as Dostoevsky says, ‘Beauty will save the world,’ it is because beauty arises only in the presence of love. Without love, there is nothing beautiful. There is nothing valuable. There is nothing meaningful. Meaning arises and transformation occurs through the call and response of personal encounter when we discover a third presence Who offers us being-in-relationship that is greater than the determinism and inertia of biological life. The stories and reflections in this volume are offered in celebration of the One who, in surprising ways and unexpected circumstances, becomes the precious and pure gift of our being bread so that we may live the mystery of becoming bread for others. I wish this for all who read this book.”
Being Bread can be purchased on Amazon.com, or you can drop by the Turner Ministry Resource Center, which is hosting a Book Signing in the Community Room at the Pastoral Institute on May 14th at 4-6:00 p.m.
