    A Spring Within Us: A Year of Daily Meditations

    The water I give will be a spring within you – welling up into infinite life. John 4:14

    Journey through the year with Richard Rohr, as he encourages us to drink deeply of God's love.

    With his great Franciscan heart wide open to the heart of the world, Richard Rohr seems to have a sixth sense about whats emerging into consciousness and where he is needed next ... What awaits you here is the integrated wisdom that emerges out of a life courageously and vulnerably lived.

    Dethroning Mammon: Making money serve grace

    , , ,
    In his first full-length book, Justin Welby looks at the subject of money and materialism. Designed for study in the weeks of Lent leading up to Easter, Dethroning Mammon reflects on the impact of our own attitudes, and of the pressures that surround us, on how we handle the power of money, called Mammon in this book. Who will be on the throne of our lives? Who will direct our actions and attitudes? Is it Jesus Christ, who brings truth, hope and freedom? Or is it Mammon, so attractive, so clear, but leading us into paths that tangle, trip and deceive? Archbishop Justin explores the tensions that arise in a society dominated by Mammon's modern aliases, economics and finance, and by the pressures of our culture to conform to Mammon's expectations. Following the Gospels towards Easter, this book asks the reader what is means to dethrone Mammon in the values and priorities of our civilisation and in our own existence. In Dethroning Mammon, Archbishop Justin challenges us to use Lent as a time of learning to trust in the abundance and grace of God.

    Reconciliation

    ,
    The Archbishop of Canterbury's Lent Book for 2019 Global in scope, but homing in on the role ordinary people play in conflict and division, Reconciliation enables Christians to engage confidently in a ministry bequeathed to us by Christ himself. The book issues a vibrant call to the Church to support and strengthen relationships among church members; to cross borders to build connections with different denominations; and to maintain open attitudes towards our neighbours from other religions and ideologies. Forty biblically based meditations introduce topics such as impediments to reconciliation, risking the self, humility and self-criticism, radical openness to the other and peace with justice. Questions for reflection are included, making Reconciliation suitable for use at weekly gatherings or for everyday devotion during Lent.

    The Jesse Tree Pack

    , , , ,
    NEW LOWER PRICE Create Your own Jesse Tree at home this Advent with this delightful and richly rewarding resource for individuals, families and churches. Originally published in Celtic Daily Readings (now out of print), this month of readings is presented as an A5 booklet beautifully illustrated with newly commissioned drawings by Francesca Ross, and accompanied by a set of 31 double-sided card ornaments, featuring Francesca’s illustrations, for you to colour, cut out and use at home on your own Jesse Tree. The Jesse Tree readings are named after the depictions in stained glass or wood that have been used over many centuries to bring to life the characters who are part of Jesus’ family tree from Jesse through David to Joseph and Mary. In many homes and churches it has become an Advent custom to use a small tree branch as a Jesse Tree and hang it with pictures or ornaments representing the people, prophecies and stories which anticipated the coming of Christ. Some churches have a special Jesse Tree service, during which the whole series of stories is recalled, and the ornaments added, one by one. At home it is probably more beneficial to take one reading, with its accompanying Scriptures, per day, adding the ornaments as you go through the month so that, rather like the pictures in an Advent calendar, more and more appear as Christmas approaches. Some of the drawings and readings remind us of the people who make up Jesus’ family tree. Some instead are rich in prophetic significance, or mark the feasts of Stephen, the ‘holy innocents’ and John the beloved. They remind us of the covenant that Jesus, the promised Messiah, invites us all to enter into with Him. The Jesse Tree can become a much-loved focal point during December that can offset and pre-empt the onset of an increasingly commercial and secularised Christmas. We hope these readings and ornaments will help you to share in this age-old practice and, by providing a focus for prayer and memory and a spur to the imagination, enrich your Advent as they take you on a journey through image and Scripture.

    A Season of Little Sacraments: Christmas Commotion, Advent Grace

    ,
    The lament swells every December, as perennial as the jingle of Salvation Army bells: the season of Advent is lost in the secular trappings of Christmas preparation. For those aspiring to a reverent Advent but caught up in the twenty-first-century to-do lists, A Season of Little Sacraments offers a fresh perspective on the secular-sacred December divide. Susan Swetnam invites readers along an ordinary woman's day-by-day walk through Advent, demonstrating that the very 'distractions' accused of taking Christ out of Christmas can become 'little sacraments' – occasions for grace to break through and faith to deepen – if approached with mindful reflection. For readers who want to experience a truly sacred Advent without fleeing completely from contemporary society, A Season of Little Sacraments will be a welcome source of nourishment and delight.

    A Shaking Reality: Daily Reflections for Advent

    ,
    Inspired by a meditation – The Shaking Reality of Advent, written by Father Alfred Delp SJ while imprisoned by the Nazis during World War II – Peter B Price has written a series of reflections and prayers to be read on each day of Advent. Each reflection is offered that we may be 'shaken and brought to a realisation of our selves', in order to gain understanding of God's promise of redemption and release.

    Christmas is so often not only commercialised but domesticated. The weeks before are busy and demanding. Yet in Christian thinking, they open our eyes to the shattering and shaking work of God in taking human form as Jesus. Nothing could be more dramatic.

    Peter Price gently, but with great firmness, calls us to be shaken by Jesus, to have our senses stirred, to be awakened to the power of the birth of Jesus, to hear the call to celebration and the warning of judgement. It is an eye-opening book and I commend it warmly.
