Commissioned by God


Commissioned By God is the lively and compelling account of Hugh Sawers’ different and varied experiences, first as he serves as student assistant at Newlands South in the Presbytery of Glasgow and then as an ordained minister at Penicuik South, Croftfoot Parish Church and Motherwell St Andrew’s.

In the course of these events Hugh has a growing conviction that he must to do all he can to assist the Church of Scotland to overcome the financial malaise into which it has sunk, and this book documents the measures he adopts to achieve these ends. Dealing sympathetically with the ups and downs of all human relationships and not least as between the various congregations under review, Hugh’s book is also a journey of exploration into the realms of faith healing, given the author’s privileged access to those nearing the end of their natural lives.

Hugh’s first book Gorbals...and God was published in 2013 and Commissioned by God continues his fascinating story.

and his struggle to attain an education to enable him to study at Glasgow University.He related his search for a faith in God and in his second book 'Commissioned by God' describes his experiences in the parish ministry with a keen insight into the workings of the Church of Scotland
