Honestly, my interest in this book was solely because of the cover! It’s so simple and welcoming….which is a good way to describe the entire book. This adult thing is hard, it’s hard to make and keep friends, it’s hard to extend ourselves to others, when we barely feel like we’re keeping our own heads up.
Martin’s book, The Ministry of Ordinary Places, is about just that; allowing the little things, allowing the ordinary things of our days to be our ministry to others and to ourselves. We have become a society that is obsessed with the extraordinary. So much so that we’ve forgotten about the beauty in the every day ordinary.
This book does a great job of paving the way and letting us see how God can work in even the most mundane.
