    The Grace-Filled Wilderness: A Six-Week Course for Lent

    ,
    The Grace-filled Wilderness connects contemporary encounters of wilderness with the traditional themes of Lent and Jesus' journey to the cross. It concentrates on `double-edged' subjects, which bring us life as well as potentially drain life from us when we fall into them in the wrong way. How we deal with our appetites; what gives us identity; how to live with the freedom and power we hold; ways to overcome the underlying anxiety which is wrapped around so much of contemporary life and faith - all of these are explored. Each week progresses from `wilderness to grace', as the reader moves through Lent and Holy Week into the glorious hope of Easter. Week I APPETITE: Fast, Hunger, Excess, Feast, Bread for the Word, Prayer & Action. Week 2 IDENTITY: Loneliness, Isolation, Solitude, Friendship, Community, Prayer & Action. Week 3 POWER: Ambition, Position, Vocation, Contribution, Service, Prayer & Action. Week 4 FREEDOM: Choice, Freedom, Boundary, Humility, Authenticity, Prayer & Action. Week 5 ANXIETY: Lifestyle, Money, Pressure, Failure, Trust, Prayer & Action. Week 6 DARKNESS: Weakness, Dislocation, Desolation, Death, Waiting, Prayer & Action.

    Unearthly Beauty: Through Advent with the Saints

    , ,
    This warm-hearted book is for those of us who enter Advent longing for spiritual sustenance to balance the worldly charms of the Christmas season. Jesus' arrival in poverty and vulnerability provoked feelings of unease, as well as expectation and hope... How will we keep the faith as Christians called to live distinctively in an age of anxiety? Magdalen Smith believes we can be inspired by people from the past – those whose names are familiar or less so – whom the Church calls 'saints'. In these wide-ranging devotions, full of contemporary stories and enjoyable cultural allusions, she introduces 24 characters who manifest a mysterious dynamic... and enable us to glimpse holiness in a new way.
