New every morning is your love, great God of light, and all day long you are working for good in the world. Stir up in us desire to serve you, to live peacefully with our neighbors and all your creation, and to devote each day to your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Rediscovering Our Spiritual Gifts Workbook
John I. Penn
• May 1996
eBook (Available in ePub or Kindle)
Based on Charles Bryant's best-selling book, Rediscovering Our Spiritual Gifts, John I. Penn has developed a workbook that helps a leader guide participants through a six-week study of discovering their spiritual gifts. Designed as a companion resource for Bryant's book, this workbook offers a basic understanding of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. The workbook will explore the following topics:
- the nature and scope of the gifts;
- what the gifts are and what they are not;
- the diversity of the gifts;
- the methods for discovering your own grace-gifts.
This resource, appropriate for both individual and group use, offers support to persons who desire to examine the spiritual gifts.
Dr. John Penn has served for 30 years as an ordained United Methodist clergyman in the Peninsula-Delaware Annual Conference. In July 2008, he retired after having served for 6 years as the senior pastor of Simpson United Methodist Church in Wilmington, Delaware. Before coming to Simpson UMC in July 2002, Dr. Penn served for 7 years as the director of spiritual formation and healing at Upper Room Ministries in Nashville, Tennessee. In retirement, Dr. Penn spends his time writing; gardening; teaching Bible studies and Sunday school; conducting some workshops beyond the local church with his wife, Gloria; and spending time with his children and grandchildren.
