Reflections on the ‘Red Book’: Ministry

Elaine Miles writes about ministry in the latest of the 'Reflections in the "Red Book"' series

In a gathered Meeting there may be few spoken words, but there is rich ministry. An hour passes quickly. Other Meetings are lifeless. They may be full of words, but there is little ministry, little that is of service. Time drags and people feel the need to fill the silence.
