'In a quiet country corner of this troubled and violent world a young Jewish girl, like the rest of her people, thinks life will be pretty much the same tomorrow as it was yesterday. But God is on the move...' You might want to read one of these pages every day for a month to give yourself time to think about each one properly. Or you might read it all in one sitting to get the broad sweep. You might read it on your own or together as a family, and talk about it. The booklet will fit in your bag or pocket, so it can go with you to the place where you have time to read it - on the bus or train or in the cafe, playground or lunch break. Scribble on it; wave it at your local minister or Christian friend and make them answer your questions or listen to your theories. And enjoy it!
Lucy Moore is the founder of Messy Church, a rapidly-growing ministry that is now in over 20 countries worldwide. She is responsible for developing the work of Messy Church nationally and internationally-writing, speaking, reflecting and developing Messy projects. Before working full-time with Messy Church, Lucy was a member of BRF's Barnabas children's ministry team, offering training for those wanting to bring the Bible to life for children in churches and schools across the UK, and using drama and storytelling to explore the Bible with children herself. Her books include titles in the Messy Church series, as well as AllAge Worship, Colourful Creation, Bethlehem Carols Unpacked, The Lord's Prayer Unplugged and The Gospels Unplugged. She also presents Messy Church: the DVD. A secondary-school teacher by training, she enjoys acting, walking Minnie the dog, marvelling at the alien world of her two teenage children and guiltily watching unimproving television programmes. She is a Lay Canon of Portsmouth Cathedral.
