Former town minister publishes new book of faith stories

FERGUS - Former Melville United Church minister Dr. George Slater, has published a  new book, Along Comes God: Miracles in Everyday Life.

The book, a collection of 43 stories, offers a personal reflection of individuals recounting their experience of how God intervened in their life.

Organized into specific themes, these stories reflect issues such as coincidences, prayers answered, dreams, healing and life-changing encounters in the light of faith.

Local settings of both Elora and Fergus are present in several stories, including one that includes Elora resident Beatty McLean. Hockey celebrity Don Cherry penned the lead story.

Dr. Merle Jordan, Emeritus Professor of Pastoral Psychology at Boston University School of Theology, says of the author “George Slater is a skilled story-teller who takes us into the heart of people’s struggles and triumphs.”

Dr. Slater, who currently resides in Caledon, is a former minister who spent the last 23 years prior to retiring in 2004 as a psychotherapist and pastoral counselor in Toronto.

Along Comes God: Miracles in Everyday Life is available at Roxanne’s Reflections, in Fergus, and at The Storehouse Christian Bookshoppe, in Guelph.
