THE MEMOIRS AND OBSERVATIONS OF COUNTRY PREACHER JOHN MOLLITT.
This collection of memoirs paints the life of a country preacher in broad strokes, through poignant anecdotes that will at times make you smile, at other times pause to reflect.
John Mollitt was born in the Lune Valley, near to Lancaster. After an early career in banking and civil service, he served as Pastor of Ingleton Evangelical Church in North Yorkshire for thirty years. Then in 2009 he retired and began an itinerant preaching ministry.
“John’s reminiscing is both heart-warming and at times amusing. Preaching his first sermon to his brother at the age of ten, he later proclaimed the gospel widely in the open air, at children’s missions, throughout a long serving pastorate and now in an itinerant ministry to rural fellowships. This has provided him not only with a score of anecdotes, but more significantly with a sympathetic understanding of the life of small village churches.” – Brian H. Edwards
WHEN A PASTOR AND HIS WIFE DECIDE TO ADOPT A SEVERELY HANDICAPPED BOY, THE LIVES OF MANY ARE IMPACTED BY GOD’S LOVE AND A CHILD’S SMILE.
When Pastor John Mollitt read in a newspaper that a four-week-old boy had been taken into hospital, he somehow knew that this baby boy would be the next foster child that he and his wife Pat would care for. Aaron arrived for a year of fostering, the beginning of a process that eventually led to his adoption.
Despite his complex medical needs and the doctors saying he would probably not reach the age of 10, Aaron lived life to the full for 28 years, bringing joy, hope and inspiration to those around him. He went to a special school from the ages of 4 to 18, enjoyed a tailored programme based on the National Curriculum and even met royalty.
This is a story of God’s love expressed in the life of a family, and how their commitment to one another enabled them to overcome great challenges.
