Staying Put ; Thought Provoking articles by Sally Mann and Henry Corbett


Mission is not always about moving



As a born and bred EastEnder, Sally Mann fears the suburbs and loves the grit and grace of local, ‘no-facade’ people. Given the pace of change in the inner city, she argues that there is something heroic about engaging with place by staying put. A Baptist minister in Newham where her family come from, she makes a compelling case, drawing on her own deep experience as well as theologians including Brueggemann and Newbigin.



Leadership for the Long Term: Affirming the Value of Staying


Henry Corbett‘s story is a powerful testimony to the faithfulness of one man’s long-term commitment to place, an expression of love. This is leadership not in terms of career, management or administration, but a Christ-like ministry that is fundamentally covenantal, about relationship, loving and accompanying people in all the detail of their lives.
