Gathering at God's Table
The Meaning of Mission in the Feast of Faith
By Katharine Jefferts Schori
"A love story between the churched soul and the all-consuming work of God on earth. This compilation of stories and commentary, confession and hymning joy, will move even the most recalcitrant of us to greater humility and more gratitude."
—Phyllis Tickle, author, Emergence Christianity: What It Is, Where It Is Going, Why It Matters
"A gift to our worldwide Communion, indeed to the whole church. These gems sparkle with insight and challenge.... A classic for renewal in the church's commitment as servant to God's mission."
—Archbishop Fred Hiltz, Primate, the Anglican Church of Canada
"Teems with the particulars of human care, human contact and human compassion.... Readers will be able to 'take heart' and 'lift up our hearts' at Katharine's compelling testimony."
—Walter Brueggemann, professor emeritus of Old Testament, Columbia Theological Seminary
"Invites us to gain strength from the stories of courageous mission leaders, listen for God's call into new and sometimes risky places and to become transformative leaders for the church today."
—The Rev. Margaret R. Rose, Ecumenical and Interreligious Deputy, The Episcopal Church
"Wide-ranging, biblical and creative ... weaves a tapestry of spirituality for the Five Marks of Mission that inspires a discipleship of solidarity and illuminates what the church's faithfulness in God's mission means in the twenty-first century."
—The Rev. Canon Dr. Titus Presler, principal, Edwardes College, Peshawar; author,
Going Global with God: Reconciling Mission in a World of Difference
