Availability is a simple but great gift. The freedom to be present when needed is something special. It is an opportunity to be spiritual—to be open to a relationship in the deepest, most elegant sense of the term. Yet this wonderful state of living often seems hidden or distorted now. Today, availability is at a premium. In the Gospels, especially the parables and the Sermon on the Mount, Christ gave a mandate to his disciples to be open to others and to God. In Availability, Wicks teaches that Christian ministry on every level requires humility, self-knowledge, awareness of our own limitations, and a determination to carry on despite challenges. His notion of availability perfectly captures what can and does inspire Christians to reach out and go beyond themselves each moment of every day.
