‘There could be no better moment for this book, which reminds us that the tangle and connectedness of human lives cannot be broken, and God’s relationship with us knows no limits or barriers.’

- Archbishop Justin Welby




Through reflections on encounters between Jesus and those he met, as described in the gospels, and significant encounters with people and places in her personal journey with God, Bishop Rachel Treweek encourages us to make new connections in our own story and to contemplate the God of encounter.


Each chapter of this carefully-crafted book ends with a prayer and a space for you to journal your own reflections.


Rachel Treweek became the first female diocesan bishop in the Church of England when she was consecrated at Canterbury Cathedral in July 2015 before formally beginning her ministry as the 41st Bishop of Gloucester. In October 2015 she became the first female Lord Spiritual in the House of Lords.
