I have been a Methodist minister for the last twenty-seven years. Before that I worked in management consultancy. Part of my call into ministry was the realisation that many of the problems I was facing in my professional life were not organisational but ones that never would have arisen if people had taken seriously Jesus' Sermon on the Mount.
For me the test of Christian faith is the difference it makes to people's lives — their everyday lives not their Sunday ones! While I know that I have a long way to go, I also know that I am a much better person with Jesus in my life than I would be without.
I long for others to know the fullness of life that Jesus brings.
