When We Can't, God Can: Encounters with the God of the ImpossibleBy: Catherine Campbell, Iucn Regional Office for Southern Africa
Few of us are superheroes. Most of us are plain ordinary. In spite of this fact God continues to throw the impossible in our direction and, invariably, we shout back "I can't!" Yet we discover this is the best background against which God can "do immeasurably more than we can even ask or think" as the apostle Paul put it. 'When We Can't, God Can' sets side by side the stories of men and women from both the biblical narrative and today who said "I can't", only to go on to accomplish great things for the God who declares his strength to be made perfect in weakness. Catherine's particular gift is to encourage, and to provide connections between the experience of biblical characters and life today.
