INTRODUCTION

All exercises in this section seek to affirm the importance of the ‘ordinary' - either by offering something which people can take out into their lives and use; or by offering an opportunity to sharpen their awareness of how God speaks through ordinary, everyday events.

This importance of the 'ordinary' is an important biblical insight.

In the Old Testament this can be seen with such people as Amos - to whom God spoke through the actions of a swarm of locusts (Amos 7:1-3), a man on a building site (Amos 7:7-9), and a basket of summer fruit (Amos 8: 1-3).

In the New Testament Jesus is shown to be constantly seeing the truths of God revealed in ordinary things, like the action of a sower, a fisherman, or a shepherd.
