We are now reading –‘The Gaze of Love’ by Ruth Patterson OBE

This collection of scripture-based meditations centers on the presence of God, and His love and compassion for all creation. The Gaze of Love implores readers to be open to a God who is forever gazing’ upon mankind and offering consolation in times of disillusionment or despair. The author helps readers to comprehend the complexity and magnitude of the gaze of love by taking examples of well-known biblical figures – from Hagar, Ruth, and Moses to Martha, Zacchaeus, and Thomas – and adeptly demonstrating how it transformed their lives.
