    This downloadable pdf contains the Colman daily readings from CDP2 (Further Up and Further In) for the month of February.

    Three monks and a donkey

    This month of readings have been written by Sarah Pillar out of her personal journey of discovery and pilgrimage. In researching the town of Evesham where she and her family live, Sarah stumbled upon this story which we’ve affectionately called ‘Three Monks and a Donkey’. The three monks are Aldwin, Reinfrid and Elfwy. They began their journey in Evesham in the year 1074, travelling North to the ancient Northumbrian sites. Nearly a thousand years ago, in the midst of political and social upheaval, they discover, as many of us have, that the simple, obedient lives of the Northumbrian saints inspire a new way for living for times such as ours. Threads of God’s story within this story have enriched our Community heritage leading us to celebrate Easter in 2009 as a Community in Evesham. It brings us a hope that in the 21st century, we too might rekindle the light of Christ in our communities, repair broken altars and rebuild foundations of old in our own changing and challenging times.

    This downloadable pdf contains the Colman daily readings from CDP2 (Further Up and Further In) for the month of January. Monastic Diseases: Monastic diseases are coping mechanisms - attitudes and actions that can bring dis-ease to ourselves and to others around us.  All of us have the potential to catch any and all of the diseases - the main problem lies in denial or wrong diagnosis or no diagnosis at all, i.e. being unaware of them.  Monastic diseases are closely related to the logismoi, those repetitive thoughts and preoccupations that can distract us from the spiritual path, and which inflame the inner monsters of our negative memories, moods and secrets triggered by all sorts of people, issues and situations, as well as our desire for comfort and consolation; all of which find expression in false expectations and unrealistic ambitions which are basically egotistical. There is so much in us of anger, aggression, selfishness, hurt, deception and damage that can only be rooted out by patient, faithful loving commitment to seeing God and knowing self, our limitations, boundaries and weaknesses, for only then can we deal with them.  When you complete your purchase, you will receive an email with a link (CDP2_dailyreadings_Colman_January.pdf) to download your pdf.  The link will expire in 3 days, although we imagine you will have downloaded it long before then!

    Seven Sacred Spaces

    , ,
    Too often people's understanding of and engagement with 'church' is reduced to corporate worship, when it is so much more. George Lings identifies seven characteristic elements in Christian communities through the ages, which when held in balance enable a richer expression of discipleship, mission and community. In the monastic tradition these elements have distinctive locations: cell (being alone with God), chapel (corporate public worship), chapter (making decisions), cloister (planned and surprising meetings), garden (the place of work), refectory (food and hospitality) and scriptorium (study and passing on knowledge). Through this lens George Lings explores how these seven elements relate to our individual and communal walk with God, hold good for church and family life, and appear in wider society.

    Celtic Daily Prayer 2: Daily Readings: Eata: Dec: PDF download

    , ,
    This downloadable pdf contains the Eata daily readings from CDP2 (Further Up and Further In) for the month of December. Deeper Magic This month's readings are taken from the works of George MacDonald, C.S. Lewis and Madeleine L'Engle. George MacDonald (1824-1905) was a Scottish author, poet and Christian minister. His writings, which draw deeply on the indigenous spirituality of the pre-clearance Highlands and folk memory of the people, have been cited as a major literary influence by many notable authors.  C.S. Lewis once said "I have never concealed the fact that I regarded George MacDonald as my master; indeed I fancy I have never written a book in which I did not quote from him." Madeleine L'Engle says " Surely George MacDonald is the grandfather of us all - all of us who struggle to come to terms with truth through fantasy."  Like MacDonald, C.S. Lewis applies his heart, brilliance and imagination to the task of opening another world to us so that we may never look at the inside of a wardrobe in the same way again. As we move, in the middle of this month, from the writings of MacDonald to those of Lewis, our adventures in Narnia awaken in us a deeper homesickness that energises rather than discourages as it bids us to come "farther up and farther in"!

    Celtic Daily Prayer 2: Daily Readings: Colman: November: PDF download

    , ,
    This downloadable pdf contains the Colman daily readings from CDP2 (Further Up and Further In) for the month of November. Living The Questions: One of our heart-felt convictions as a Community is that each of us should learn to ‘embrace the Heretical Imperative’, to question everything boldly in order to understand something deeper about who God is, who we are, and what our purpose is in the work of God in the world, alone and together. Some truth can only be found, fought for, and embraced by asking questions. When we are faced with the reality of lives that are complex, messy and full of paradox, in the context of a rapidly changing world, quick answers are often at best unhelpful. If we choose a different approach, we find ourselves living the questions. This month of daily readings is a collection of questions, thoughts, and provocations that reflect something of life back to us and urge us to ponder our spiritual awakening and growth.   When you complete your purchase, you will receive an email with a link (CDP2_dailyreadings_Colman_November.pdf) to download your pdf.  The link will expire in 3 days, although we imagine you will have downloaded it long before then!

    Celtic Daily Prayer 2: Daily Readings: Colman: September: PDF download

    , ,
    This downloadable pdf contains the Colman daily readings from CDP2 (Further Up and Further In) for the month of September. Hospitality: When we say YES to the practice of hospitality, do we immediately think of inviting our friends around for a meal with a good bottle of wine? Does hospitality for us mean a pleasant social setting, food and drink shared with people we like and in places where we are comfortable? Our understanding and lifestyle may have become quite limited, for hospitality has far broader possibilities than these! This month of readings will hopefully help us to expand our narrow definitions of hospitality and encourage us into far more radical ways of opening ourselves to others. In reading the Gospels we find that Christ did indeed share plenty of meals and some wine too with people, but in a way that was out of keeping with the polite practices of the day, that even disturbed polite society. And his practice of hospitality extended beyond the meal table and the home and out onto the roads and waysides, where he journeyed in anticipation of personal encounter with individuals and with crowds, always with an attitude of openness and welcome, available, always vulnerable. These words invite us to re-think our understanding of hospitality, to become braver, let down some barriers, let go of our prejudices, walk headlong into true availability and vulnerability by extending a hospitality of heart.   When you complete your purchase, you will receive an email with a link (CDP2_dailyreadings_Colman_September.pdf) to download your pdf.  The link will expire in 3 days, although we imagine you will have downloaded it long before then!

    This downloadable pdf contains the Colman daily readings from CDP2 (Further Up and Further In) for the month of August. In the World This month of readings seeks to help us push past the artificial divide between the secular and the sacred, the physical and the spiritual, the body and the soul, and move, as Barbara Brown Taylor says, towards "trusting that there is no way to God apart from real life in the real world". later this month we will hear from Charles Ringma, but we begin with excerpts from An Altar in the World by Barbara Brown Taylor.  Here are some words from her introduction: Whoever you are, you are human. Wherever you are, you live in the world, which is just waiting for you to notice the holiness in it. So welcome to your own priesthood, practised at the altar of your own life. The good news is that you have everything you need to begin.

    City Without a Church: PDF download

    , ,
    This is a downloadable pdf of the booklet "City without a Church" by Henry Drummond, which has been produced as one in a series of booklets exploring responses to one of the basic questions of the Northumbria Community: "How Then Shall We Live?" The city without a church The City Without a Church is a meditation by Henry Drummond on a selection of verses from Revelation chapters 21 (verses 2 and 22) and 22 (verses 2 and 3). Extracts from it feature in the Finan series of readings for July in Celtic Daily Prayer and it has become an important text for the Northumbria Community because it deals with ‘church without walls’ and ‘kingdom in the streets’. Although this meditation is framed in the muscular, self-confident language of the Victorian era, its underlying message to us is as fresh as if it was written yesterday. The message is this: the institutional churches have ‘stolen Christ from the people’. What struck Drummond about John’s vision of the New Jerusalem was not just that he saw a city (rather than some kind of pastoral idyll) but that he saw no temple (or church) there. Although Drummond has hard words for the institutional church, he is by no means anti-church: he just wants it to wake up to the realities of real faith and get its priorities right. For Drummond, this involves getting out of our church buildings and getting totally involved in the concrete realities of our streets − starting right where we are, with the mess of real life all around us. He says that ‘it is only because the secular is so intensely sacred that so many eyes are blind before it.’ When you complete your purchase, you will receive an email with a link to download your pdf.  The link will expire in 3 days, although we imagine you will have downloaded it long before then!

    This downloadable pdf contains the Finan daily readings from CDP1 (The Journey Begins) for the month of July. The city without a church These readings are extracted from The City Without a Church by Henry Drummond. An introduction: The City Without a Church is a meditation by Henry Drummond on a selection of verses from Revelation chapters 21 (verses 2 and 22) and 22 (verses 2 and 3). Extracts from it feature in the Finan series of readings for July in Celtic Daily Prayer and it has become an important text for the Northumbria Community because it deals with ‘church without walls’ and ‘kingdom in the streets’; in fact it dovetails very neatly with the Community’s Rule which states: We embrace the challenge to live as ‘church without walls’, living openly amongst unbelievers and other believers in a way that the life of God in ours can be seen, challenged or questioned. This will involve us building friendships outside our Christian ghettos or club-mentality, not with ulterior evangelistic motives, but because we genuinely care.   When you complete your purchase, you will receive an email with a link to download your pdf.  The link will expire in 3 days, although we imagine you will have downloaded it long before then!

    Celtic Daily Prayer 2: Daily Readings: Eata: June: PDF download

    , ,
    This downloadable pdf contains the Eata daily readings from CDP2 (Further Up and Further In) for the month of June. Sermon on the Mount Once upon a time two women were musing over an idea. What would Jesus do with a group who gathered not for Bible study, not for prayer, not for ministry but just to sit at His feet ... to learn? Meanwhile, unaware of this idea, a third woman had a dream while on holiday. One Wednesday morning the idea and the dream fused over coffee. What eventually transpired was a year-long engagement with the Sermon on the Mount as twelve women wrestled with the words – first memorising them, then pondering them, then staging them as a dramatic presentation. Twenty years later we are still under their spell and trying to put them into practice. This month’s meditations, written by Sarah Berry, are stories, experiences, little pieces of wisdom – and the questions that have come from the adventure of walking with Jesus through this sermon.

Buechner’s work has often been praised for its ability to inspire readers to see the grace in their daily lives. In three of his books Peculiar Treasures: A Biblical Who’s Who; Wishful Thinking: A Seeker’s ABC and Whistling in the Dark: A Doubter’s Dictionary, he tries to dust-off and put the colour back into Biblical characters, religious words, and ordinary words, respectively.

    Reading Buechner: Exploring the Work of a Master Memoirist, Novelist, Theologian, and Preacher

    Frederick Buechner is one of the most gifted writers of his generation, and his legacy casts a long shadow over Christian letters today. As a memoirist, he opened up an entirely new way to think about the genre. As a novelist, he was a finalist for the Pulitzer. And as a theologian and preacher, he pioneered the art of making theology accessible for a popular audience. Yet for all Buechner's enormous influence, many readers today are unfamiliar with his work, or have read him only in one genre. In this book, Buechner expert Jeffrey Munroe presents a collection of the true "essentials" from across Buechner's diverse catalog, as well as an overview of Buechner's life and a discussion of the state of his literary legacy today. Here is Buechner in all his complex glory, ready to delight and inspire again.

    Following Jesus: Finding Our Way Home in an Age of Anxiety

    ,
    At one of the lowest points in his life, Henri Nouwen gave a series of lectures on the importance of following Jesus in an age of anxiety. This new work from the archives of the Nouwen estate draws on those talks. It reveals the deep turmoil and sometimes chaotic inner life of the man who has become an icon of compassion and vulnerability for Christians and non-Christians alike. Nouwen writes eloquently about calling and purpose, fear and hope and explains why, with so many choices available to 21st century seekers - including atheism and secularism - the greatest reward for those looking for fulfilment is to choose belief in God. Along the way he offers warm, insightful, practical spiritual practices to help readers navigate the narrow, sometimes arduous, but ultimately fulfilling road of conviction and faith.

    The Heart Alone with God

    , , , , ,
    Celtic and Desert spirituality was essentially monastic, and praying was learned in the context of cell (alone) and community (together). There was no separation of praying and living; one flowed from the other. For us too, life is prayer and prayer is life. Making inner space to cultivate the God-life within is at the centre of the contemplative experience, which is entering into the self to be with God. This interior life is also a journey through the darkness and dangers of ‘the world, the flesh and the devil’. This booklet explores how we can thwart even the most ‘devious’ of attacks of the enemy and find inner peace as we understand the full meaning and significance of ‘The Heart Alone with God’.

    Running Over Rocks : Spiritual Practices to Transform Tough Times

    , , ,
    Running Over Rocks is an invitation into a journey of discovery. Through reflections, images and strikingly beautiful poems, Ian Adams - author of the bestselling Cave Refectory Road - explores fifty-two spiritual practices to enable us to live with joy, grace and purpose through good and tough times alike and so to bring good to the world around us. These practices draw on an ancient wisdom but are rooted in the everyday material of our lives, revealing that any transformation of the world for good must always begin with ourselves. Ian skilfully opens up the Christian contemplative tradition in a grounded and accessible way for today's spiritual seeker. In an age when many are spiritually hungry, Ian opens up the Christian tradition in a way that is dynamically spiritual and authentically religious. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is seeking to establish a deep Christian faith and practice that can thrive in the complexity of the modern world.

    Dietrich Bonhoeffer : An Introduction to His Thought

    ,
    In this refreshing new book on Dietrich Bonhoeffer, author Sabine Dramm examines the twentieth century's bestknown German pastor and theologian. Dietrich Bonhoeffer's passionate life and dramatic death are well known. Here, his life and the death he accepted in resistance to Hitler are examined in the context of his faith and thought, as found in his own writings. This is a book about Bonhoeffer's vibrant Christian faith and his profound yet very practical theological thinking. Dramm explores Bonhoeffer's sermons, letters, articles, and books. She offers her readers an outstanding introduction to the breadth of his writing and the depth of his theological thinking. She also shows how Bonhoeffer's beliefs and understandings led him to active resistance to the Nazi regime: to the establishment of alternative church groups, to espionage, and ultimately to conspiracy to overthrow the government by assassinating Hitler.

    Thomas Merton: The Exquisite Risk of Love : The Chronicle of a Monastic Romance

    ,
    While recuperating from an operation on his spine in a hospital in Louisville, Kentucky, Thomas Merton befriended a female nurse charged with his care. They fell in love. On returning to the Abbey of Gethsemani, where Merton had been living as a Trappist monk, their clandestine romance continued. In his journal Learning to Love and a collection of eighteen poems, Merton chronicled his relationship with `M.', the gentle, kind and mysterious young woman who opened a window to his heart after his life long refusal of women. Here, for the first time, Robert Waldron explores Merton's rich and full experience of the sacred game of love with reference to Eighteen Poems as well as Merton's own personal account, and how it made it possible for him to attain a spiritual and psychological wholeness he had never known before. Indeed, the book wonderfully illustrates the value in daring to live for the love of another.

    Divine Discontent : The Prophetic Voice of Thomas Merton

    ,
    Thomas Merton's best-selling spiritual autobiography, The Seven Storey Mountain, was one of the most influential books of the twentieth century. The original (1948) hardback edition sold 600,000 copies and by 1984 paperback sales had exceeded 3m. It has been translated into 15 languages and remains in print today. The 2015 centenary of Merton's birth provides an opportunity to reconsider both his international reputation and his startling relevance in today's world. Merton was a Trappist monk, writer, contemplative, social critic, pacifist, jazz lover and (in the context of world faiths) ecumenist whose sudden, premature death in unexplained circumstances prompted a further surge of interest in the man and his work. His extensive writings, many only recently available, provide the basis for a fresh examination of his story, permitting Merton to speak for himself whenever possible, but enabling also an analysis of his abiding fascination and the discontents - human and divine - that dominated so much of his life. The author inspires us to look again at our preconceived ideas about the natural world, the prevailing culture, abuses of power, questions of war and peace, contemplation and action, institutions and the freedom of the individual - and the search for God. NB The International Thomas Merton Society has 40 Chapters in the US alone, overseas Chapters in Argentina, Australia (2), France, Japan, New Zealand and Russia, and affiliated organisations in 11 further countries (Belgium & the Netherlands, Brazil, Canada, England, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Korea, Poland, Spain and Sweden).

    Thomas Merton My Brother : His Journey to Freedom, Compassion and Final Integration

    ,
    This intriguing expose not only traces Merton's remarkable journey through life, but it also explores the various deposits of his vast literary heritage. Pennington, one of the leading spiritual writers of our times, was a close friend of Merton. As a fellow Cistercian monk for many years, he can understand as few others can the lifestyle and concerns of Thomas Merton. Chapters deal with Merton's quest for inner freedom, his growth to compassion, his attraction to the Orient and its mysticism, his vast literary output. Pennington's personal recollections of their times spent together allows his writing an original warmth that cannot be found elsewhere.

    Mere Spirituality : The Spiritual Life According to Henri Nouwen

    ,
    Henri Nouwen's compelling spirituality of the heart is at once simple and complex, accessible but deeply profound. For this Catholic theologian, whose ecumenical writings continue to inspire Christians of all denominations and levels of involvement, spirituality is, at its most basic, simply 'attention to the life of the spirit in us'.Wil Hernandez's sensitive distillation of Nouwen's vast literary legacy invites us to take courage and be still, creating space for God and our true selves. It is in this place of trust and solitude that we discover our belovedness and our capacity to love God and others.A scholar and spiritual director intimately acquainted with Nouwen's understanding of the spiritual life, Wil Hernandez offers an elegant synthesis of Nouwen's main themes, inspiring us to embrace the power and vulnerability of mere spirituality.

    Wounded Prophet : A Portrait of Henri J.M.Nouwen

    ,
    This new edition of Wounded Prophet, commemorating the tenth anniversary of the death of Henri J M Nouwen, remains essential reading for all those who have been touched by Nouwen's writing, presenting a compelling picture of a man whose spiritually profound books emerged from his own wounded and searching soul. Wounded Prophet was the first full portrait of Henri Nouwen to emerge after his untimely death in 1996 and paints an honest and sympathetic picture, examining all areas of Nouwen's life, including his outstanding gifts as a writer and speaker, his sexuality and his deep restlessness. In a new Introduction, Michael Ford reflects on the process of writing the book and the reactions to its publication, as he received positive endorsements from people in every corner of the world, pleased especially that he had highlighted Nouwen's wounds. Ultimately this portrait strengthens Nouwen's enduring appeal and his legacy as a great spiritual writer.

    Letters to Marc About Jesus

    ,
    'If I were to let my life be taken over by what is urgent, I might very well never get around to what is essential. It's so easy to spend your whole time being preoccupied with urgent matters and never starting to live, really to live.'In seven Letters to Marc about Jesus, Henri Nouwen writes from the conviction that Jesus is the centre of his own life. From that perspective, he shares the joys and sufferings of his own spiritual journey with his 19-year old nephew in Holland. The letters deal with deep questions about life and faith in the light of the Gospel message, and with the spiritual search as experienced by a young adult today.

    The Road to Daybreak : A Spiritual Journey

    ,
    The Road to Daybreak is Henri Nouwen's intimate diary recording his most poignant year at l'Arche, which began in the summer of 1985, a precious time of inner renewal and self-discovery. With simplicity and honesty, he describes how the experience changed his attitudes and enriched his spiritual life. He recounts the struggles and self-doubts he faced along this rocky road to a new vocation, and introduces us to the people of l'Arche and many others whose impact on him was deep and long-lasting. Such was the impact of this experience that he chose to say yes to the call to go to l'Arche Daybreak Community in Toronto and make it his permanent home and ministry. Rich in insights and sparkling with touching and inspiring anecdotes, The Road to Daybreak invites the reader to join this renowned spiritual writer on his journey to a deeper understanding of God and the human family.

    The Genesee Diary: report from a Trappist monastery

    , ,
    This touching observation is central to the probing spiritual journal of Henri Nouwen recorded during his seven-month stay in a Trappist monastery. During this period he had a unique opportunity to explore crucial issues of the spiritual life and discover 'a quiet stream underneath the fluctuating affirmations and rejections of our little world'. Henri Nouwen participated fully in the daily life and routine of the Abbey of the Genesee in upstate New York - in work and in prayer. He relates here the typical human experiences and questions that had somehow prevented Christ from being the centre of his existence. From the early weeks in the abbey - dominated by conflicting desires and concerns - to the final days of Advent, when he has found a new sense of calm expectation, Henri Nouwen never loses his critical honesty. Insightful, compassionate, often humorous, always realistic, The Genesee Diary is both an inspiration and a challenge to those who are in search of themselves.

    Precious Thoughts: daily readings from Thomas Merton

    , ,
    Thomas Merton wrote to people of all faiths and none; he wrote to people who were searching, and those who were firmly established in religious orders; he wrote to students, peace activists and `ordinary' people who had read about him and were curious. Some are letters of spiritual direction, a sharing of spiritual insights and social concerns, some more personal. In this carefully selected collection, Merton scholar, Fiona Gardner, has focused on extracts that seem to speak to all who are searching. They have been chosen because they offer an opening into something other - to provide a way into both silence and contemplative prayer.

Originally published under the title The Climate of Monastic Prayer, Where Prayer Flourishes is his final work. It is full of accessible and practical teaching for anyone that wants to explore prayer to its full dimensions. Merton argues that prayer flourishes best in the desert. Here, he shows how to find the desert in the midst of the busy world. Where Prayer Flourishes will open a treasury of teaching about prayer to a wider audience.

    Discernment – reading the signs of daily life

    , ,
    Henri Nouwen understood the spiritual life as a journey of faith and transformation that is deepened by accountability, community and relationships. And the practice of discernment is about how to read the 'signs of the times' in daily life in order to know what to do next. Nouwen believes our calling and mission may be made clear through the people we meet on our path, the circumstances that each day brings, the books and sacred texts we read and meditate on, and through current events. Discernment seeks the will of God, requiring the disciplines of contemplative prayer, compassionate action and theological reflection. Discernment has been compiled by two of Nouwen's longtime students, Michael Christensen and Rebecca Laird, from coursework, journals and unpublished writings.

    Things Hidden: scripture as spirituality

    , ,
    Only when the two come together, inner and outer authority, do we have true spiritual wisdom. We have for too long insisted on outer authority alone, without any teaching of prayer, inner journey and maturing consciousness. The results for the world and for religion have been disastrous ...I offer these reflections to again unite what should never have been separated: sacred Scripture and Christian spirituality.' From the introduction In this exploration of central themes of Scripture, Richard Rohr transforms the written word, discovering in these ancient texts a new and vital meaning, relevant and essential for modern Christians. He uncovers what the Bible says about morality, power, wisdom and the generosity of God in a manner that demands a life-changing response from believers. Rohr offers his readers a Christian vision of abundance, grace and joy to counteract a world filled with scarcity, judgement and fear-a vision that can revolutionize how we relate to ourselves, others and the world.

    The Luminous Web: Faith, science and the experience of wonder

    , , ,
    The renowned author Barbara Brown Taylor reflects on two different worlds knowledge, science and faith, that are often set in opposition to one another. The one is said to rely on observable fact; the other on subjective belief. With her customary skill and grace, Barbara Brown Taylor demonstrates that these distinctions do not hold. She seeks to discover what the insights of quantum physics, the new biology, and chaos theory can teach a person of faith, why scientists often sound like poets and why physicists call on the language of imagination, beauty and mystery that is also found in scripture. Both science and religion, she finds, are dedicated to searching for truth. Both experience awe. Both are vulnerable to error, but are open to the wonder of discovery. Both are prone to desiring certainty. Both admit that there is an essential messiness to life that makes it unpredictable, that experience will always trip us up no matter what our beliefs, yet both see a symmetry and order that holds things together. Whether our understanding of the origins of the world rests in theoretical physics or God, The Luminous Web opens our eyes afresh to the wonder of creation, where we each belong and where nothing – not even the hairs of our head or a butterfly's wings – is without immense significance.

    God in Pain: The mystery of suffering

    , , ,

    We need a God who knows about pain

    To speak of God in pain, says Barbara Brown Taylor, is to embrace both the biblical accounts of Christ's suffering and death, and also the God who is present in our pain. This wise and compassionate book seeks to understand that presence with characteristic grace, sensitivity, profound biblical insight and truthfulness to human experience. Part One explores the ways that God's presence can be discerned in the pains we experience in life: disillusionment, despair, betrayal, anger, enmity, family feuds, insult and injury. A series of reflections on biblical texts asks whether any good news can be found in pain. Part Two contemplates God's suffering in the unique pain of Good Friday. Reflecting on the story of Christ's crucifixion, Barbara Brown Taylor goes in search of what God went to such great lengths to reveal to us. God in Pain engages with life's most complex mystery with honesty and finds grounds for hope.

    Learning to Walk in the Dark

    ,
    New from best-selling author Barbara Brown Taylor, perhaps best known for An Altar in the World, comes Learning to Walk in the Dark. In this hardback book she writes with wisdom, grace and beauty as she seeks to rehabilitate what we have learned to fear - the dark. Here she reflects on how our lives do not only work when everything is brightly lit; twilight and deep darkness have treasures of their own waiting to be discovered. Babara Brown Taylor writes: 'Darkness is shorthand for anything that scares me - either because I am sure that I do not have the resources to survive ti or because I do not want to have to find out. If I had my way, I would eliminate everything from chronic back pain ti the fear of the devil from my life ad the lives of those I love. At least I think I would. The problem is this: when, despite all my best efforts, the lights have gone off in my life, plunging me into the kind of darkness that turns my knees to water, I have not died. The monsters have not dragged me out of bed and taken me back to their lair. Instead, I have learned things in the dark that I could never have learned in the light, things that have saved my life over and over again, so that there is really only one logical conclusion. I need darkness as much as I need light. Learning to Walk in the Dark is a wise spiritual companion and guide for those times in life when we don't have all the answers. Recognising our tendency to associate all that is good with light, and all that is evil and dangerous with darkness, Barbara Brown Taylor asks whether God doesn't work at night too? With her characteristic grace and generosity, she invites us to put aside our fears and anxieties and to discover all that the darkness has to teach us. She takes us to underground caverns, subterranean chapels, basement night clubs and unlit cabins in the woods on moonless nights. Through darkness, we begin to see the world and sense God's presence around us in new ways, guiding us through things seen an unseen, and teaching us to find out footing in times of uncertainty. Like seeds buried in the ground, we will find how darkness is essential for our own growth and flourishing.

Originally delivered as the 1997 Lyman Beecher Lectures in preaching at Yale Divinity School, When God is Silent   addresses questions essential not only to preachers, but also to anyone yearning to hear from God.

    Carry Me On CD

    For nearly 20 years Mark Riley, a Californian by birth, has come to appreciate and embrace the life, culture and sounds of the Hawaiian nation. In order to honour the people and respect the friends and place he now calls home, this recording has involved cultural expressions, natural soundscapes and Hawaiian musicians to help tell Mark's unfolding story of journeying with God on the island of Kauai as well as internationally. The melding of modern music and indigenous Hawaiian instruments on this project is a symbol of different people groups coming together in unity and exploring their God-given heritage and unique musical gifts. [playlist images="false" ids="8781,8783,8785,8787,8791,8793,8795,8797,8799,8801,8803,8805"]   As friends, Mark and I have spent time in each other's community, learning from each other, sharing life's experiences and dreaming dreams. Mark's passion to mesh song with prayer and my heart 'to ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is, and walk in it,' (Jer. 6:16) has been a catalyst for this musical expression of worship.   We are so thankful to those who have shared their stories and given us some understanding of Hawaiian culture and protocol. In our exploration and relationships we have seen God through each other's eyes, learning more of the mysteries of God and tocuhing a little bit of heaven on earth.'   Martin Neil.   All proceeds directly support outreach and ministries of MMI-KAUAI

    New Seeds of Contemplation

    ,
    New Seeds of Contemplation is one of Thomas Merton’s most widely read and best-loved books. Christians and non-Christians alike have joined in praising it as a notable successor in the meditative tradition of St. John of the Cross, The Cloud of Unknowing, and the medieval mystics, and some have compared Merton’s reflections to those of Thoreau. New Seeds of Contemplation seeks to awaken the dormant inner depths of the spirit so long neglected by Western man, to nurture a deeply contemplative and mystical dimension in our lives. For Merton, ‘Every moment and every event of every man’s life on earth plants something in his soul. For just as the wind carries thousands of winged seeds, so each moment brings with it germs of spiritual vitality that come to rest imperceptibly in the minds and wills of men. Most of these unnumbered seeds perish and are lost, because men are not prepared to receive them: for such seeds as these cannot spring up anywhere except in the soil of freedom, spontaneity and love.’

    The Way of the Heart

    The words flee, be silent and pray summarise the spirituality of the desert. They indicate the three ways of preventing the world from shaping us in its image and are thus the three ways to life in the Spirit.' How can Christians live as God wants in today's world? Henri Nouwen seeks his answer from an unlikely source - the example of the fifth-century Egyptian Desert Fathers and Mothers. Their experience in the desert taught them that true Christian living in possible only if we find a place in our lives for solitude, silence and prayer. The Way of the Heart in a perfect book for prayerful meditation. Compassionate yet challenging, it will enable us not only to appreciate the teaching of the Desert Fathers and Mothers, but to apply it to our daily lives.

    One Foot in Eden explores the connection between what is deepest in us and the original goodness of creation seen in the Garden. Writing in the Celtic tradition, Philip Newell views grace, not as opposed to nature but as releasing God's creativity which was planted within us at birth. Love's wisdom and passion may lie buried under layers of confusion in our lives, but they are waiting to be recovered. The book imagines a pilgrimage through the different stages of life, from the innocence of the newborn, through the awakening of adolescence and the passions of adulthood, to the wisdom which comes from experience.

    Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life

    , ,
    In the first half of life, we are naturally and rightly preoccupied with establishing our identities – climbing, achieving, and performing. But those concerns will not serve us as we grow older and begin to embark on a further journey, one that involves challenges, mistakes, loss of control, broader horizons, and necessary suffering that shocks us out of our comfort zones. Eventually, we need to see ourselves in a different and more life-living way. This message of 'falling down' – that is in fact moving upward – is the most resisted and counterintuitive of messages in the world's religions, including and most especially Christianity. In Falling Upward, Father Richard Rohr offers a new paradigm for understanding one of the most profound of life's mysteries: how our failing can be the foundation for our ongoing spiritual growth. Drawing on the wisdom from time-honoured myths, heroic poems, great thinkers, and sacred religious texts, the author explores the two halves of life to show that those who have fallen, failed, or 'gone down' are the only ones who understand 'up'. We grow spiritually more by doing it wrong than by doing it right. With rare insight, Rohr takes us on a journey to give us an understanding of how the heartbreaks, disappointments and first loves of life are actually stepping stones to the spiritual joys that the second half of life has in store for us.

    Home Tonight: Further Reflections on the Parable of the Prodigal Son

    ,
    Prior to writing his great classic, The Return of the Prodigal Son, Henri Nouwen suffered an enormous personal loss and breakdown that took him away from his home in the L'Arche Daybreak community for a period of seven months. His thoughts were intense, raw and deeply private, and ultimately revealed to him the passionate drama of parenthood, filial duty, rivalry, anger and unconditional live on display in Rembrandt's painting. On his return from solitude, Henri held small private workshops on his revelations that were recorded in audio. The material of those extremely personal talks has now been formed into a unique work. Home Tonight brings to light Nouwen's lectures on the Prodigal Son in a powerful guide for spiritual reflection. Providing exercises, suggestions for times of solitude, questions for pondering, simple prayers, and aids for personal journalling, Home Tonight leads readers to commune with God through spiritual listening. A practical guide for the inner journey home, this important book will give those who adore Nouwen's works the chance to hear his voice anew on his most popular topic.

    Life of the Beloved and Our Greatest Gift

    ,
    The real 'work' of prayer is to become silent and listen to the voice that says good things about me. The late Henri Nouwen was one of the twentieth century's greatest spiritual writers, and this book brings together two of his most inspirational pastoral works, reissued to mark the twentieth anniversary of his death. Life of the Beloved asks how one can live a spiritual life in a completely secular culture. The greatest challenge, concludes Nouwen, is to bridge the gap between secular and sacred within the human self as a human being beloved of God. Our Greatest Gift is a mediation on dying. Dying and death can often bring fear, but the experience of dying and caring for the dying can become the deepest experience of love. Now encourages us to ask, 'How can my death become fruitful in the loves of others?'. Ultimately, it is the greatest gift we have to offer.

    Celebration of Discipline: The Path to Spiritual Growth

    Praised by many as the most important contemporary book on Christian spirituality, this timeless classic has helped well over a million people discover a richer spiritual life infused with joy, peace and a deeper understanding of God. This book explores the 'classic disciplines' of the Christian faith: the inward disciplines of meditation, prayer, fasting and study; the outward disciplines of simplicity, solitude, submission and service; and the corporate disciplines of confession, worship, guidance and celebration.

    Cave Refectory Road: monastic rhythms for contemporary living

    , ,
    In this short and eminently readable book, Ian Adams captures the essential genius of the monastic tradition and combines it with his own experience as poet, family man and abbot of a 'new-monastic community' to address the dis-ease of so much of our contemporary ways of living. His books gives simple practical inspiration for 'ordinary living' and re-calls monks and nuns, friars and sisters to the passion of their founders as it asks: 'How did the dynamic way of the passionate, scandalous re-imaginer Jesus give way to so much that is pointless, repressed and safe?' Abbot Stuart Burns OSB Ian skilfully opens up the Christian contemplative tradition in a grounded and accessible way for today's spiritual seeker. In an age when many are spiritually hungry, Ian opens up the Christian tradition in a way that is dynamically spiritual and authentically religious. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is seeking to establish a deep Christian faith and practice that can thrive in the complexity of the modern world.

    Contemplative Prayer

    ,
    Thomas Merton's classic study of monastic prayer and contemplation brings a tradition of spirituality alive for the present day. But, as A M Allchin points out in his Introduction to this new edition, Contemplative Prayer also shows us the present day in a new perspective, because we see it in the light of a long and living tradition. Merton stresses that in meditation we should not look for a 'method' or 'system' but cultivate an 'attitude' or 'outlook': faith, openness, attention, reverence, expectation, trust, joy. God is found in the desert of surrender, in giving up any expectation of a particular message and 'waiting on the Word of God in silence'. Merton insists on the humility of faith, which he argues 'will do far more to launch us into the full current of historical reality than the pompous rationalisation of politicians who think they are somehow the directors and manipulators of history'.
