All who minister to others, whether ordained or lay, must allow themselves to be shepherded by God, attentive to the voice of God. We all pray in the Spirit, rooted in Christ. Philip Seddon urges us not to be deflected from ‘whole Christ’ – as the Puritan, Richard Sibbes, termed Christ’s relationship with believers – by New Age thought. In ministry, we need to know how to use diverse sociological tools wisely alongside sound habits of prayer.
