One year since ‘Rooted’: what I’ve been up to - Hannah Fytche
We caught up with Hannah Fytche, author of Rooted in God's Grace, to find out what she has been doing in the year since her book was published.
I can’t believe it’s been one year since the launch of ‘Rooted in God’s Grace’, my book which explores how we can build up habits to help us know and listen to God in our everyday lives. It feels like only yesterday that I celebrated its release with friends and family – over wine and music (and even a tree!) in my College Chapel.
Since that evening, I’ve studied for my Master’s in New Testament theology, involving learning Biblical Hebrew and writing a thesis on angels, worship, and Christ. It’s been a big, sometimes stressful year – but I’ve loved the challenge and the opportunity to reflect deeply and write about one particular subject.
I’ve also loved being a student for an extra year: I’ve enjoyed staying involved in my College Chapel community, throughout the year in Cambridge and also on summer retreat in Italy. Through this community, God’s been showing me more and more what it means to be called by him, the One who commissions us and the One who gives us the rest we need.
As such, I’m looking forward to resting as I take a break from study. After a summer packed with retreats and summer camps, I’ll be working in a church for a year, as I explore and test vocation – and as I continue to write! (Watch this space.)
