Listing Detail Tabs

The idea that missionaries are haloed saints, mature and perfected, above the sins of most mortals and so not needing much prayer, has done great disservice to the missionary cause. If you ever lived with missionaries you would know that their halos are askew. If I were to say that a missionary preaches the gospel, may (if female) put curlers in her hair, likes ice cream, travels a lot, longs for letters from home, can be thoughtless or domineering or depressed, perspires, has cakes that dont always rise, never gets beyond the need of the Lords teaching, is concerned about her childrens upbringing and education and feels irritable in the heat, your first thought would be, "Sounds like a description of me."

Exactly. James tells us Elijah was a man of like passions but we have trouble believing it. Our glamorization of missionaries blinds us to the need of down-to-earth prayer for down-to-earth details.

The title comes from the fact that God does send help when needed, even for "small" irritations like excessive heat and perspiration, and sticky clothes but sometimes we prefer to "fuss" instead.

This paperback is in Excellent condition. Printed 1985, 262 pages, 11cms x 18cms tall.
