  • Ministering among the poor and the importance of the Church for the poor in small towns
  • The difference in response to the gospel between Jamaican and Canadian contexts
  • How serving and connecting with those in need can provide fuel for the spiritual life
  • Communicating in other cultures
  • Consistent prayer life and devotions to stay grounded in God
  • What is means to pray without ceasing
  • Prayer as the first place rather than last resort
  • Reading a lot of devotionals
  • Misconceptions about spirituality – what is it and who is it for?
  • What do you do when you don’t “feel” God’s presence?

    That was great, especially near the end. That section just struck me as wow, that’s how I feel. I don’t pray for God to be with me but when I pray I know he is listening because he is always here
