Visiting the sick, lonely or downcast is a duty we all
have as Christians. It is not to be left to ministers or
elders but is a responsibility for all those who seek to
follow Christ's perfect example. The problem often arises
when we actually make the visit. Discussing the weather or
the hospital food is all very well but for our visit to
have maximum value we need to try and help the person
spiritually. Reading our favourite Bible passage might
suffice once but it cannot be apt to every situation and
what happens when you visit for a second time?
This is where this book helps. Providing Scripture
readings, a prayer and even a suggested hymn for a wide
range of possible visits it is a wonderfully useful tool.
Written by authors with long pastoral experience it will
prove a real help to all those who seek to turn the
routine visit into a time of real spiritual growth.
