Discerning the Gold in Human Experience

About the book

This book, written during 'lockdown due to Covid-19, is a passionate and enthusiastic account of the life of a Religious Sister in the twenty first century. As an Educator and Organizational Consultant the author draws on the resources of professional skills in leadership training, facilitation and consultancy and integrates them with discernment for action. True to the charism and mission of her congregation of the Faithful Companions of Jesus, based on the spirituality of St Ignatius of Loyola, she writes with energy and vast experience about practical ways of living faith in action. She demonstrates the importance of social justice, collaboration, inclusion and partnerships with teams and the responsibility to work at sustainability for the future.

When asked what she wants readers to take away from the book, Christine answers, "The courage to ask their own questions. The belief that they have the resources within themselves to fulfil their dreams and respond to some of the complex questions of today."

Christine Anderson

Christine Anderson FCJ is a member of the Society of the Faithful Companions of Jesus. She is the founder of Faith and Praxis for Global Leadership in Rome, Italy and Craighead Institute of Life and Faith in Glasgow, Scotland. As an experienced Facilitator and Organizational Consultant, Christine has worked in many countries of the world. Her passion is the integration of Life and Faith and she is constantly developing methodologies for groups to address this area of life.

"My passion has always been to find a way to integrate life experience and faith, values, and beliefs - seeing them as one human story and avoiding the fragmentation wrought upon us today by so many complex systems. Throughout all this work, the desire was to work professionally, deeply, and effectively with people who come from different faith backgrounds with different values and beliefs in areas struggling for development and wholeness"

"As a Christian, I am fascinated by the gap that can exist between what we say we believe and how we apply that in daily life. It has been my life's work to explore the meaning of experience in life, to search new questions, to open up closed subjects, and to allow freedom of expression in a culture that at times can try to shut this sort of attitude down. In this book, I have reflected with the readers on part of my own story, a life lived in a religious congregation."
