God with us

‘Preach the Gospel by all means,’ said St Francis, ‘if necessary, use words.’ So in this issue of franciscan we look across the spectrum of ways of communicating God to others. Some depend very much on words – Pat Heap reflects on her experience as a religious programmes producer for local radio, brothers and sisters write about preaching, and God is found to be alive and well on the Internet. For Father John Kitchen, ‘the witness of life is more eloquent than that of words.’ And Michael Perham looks at how liturgy communicates God to the worshipper.
