    Comings and Goings : Retracing the Christmas story through place and time

    ,
    Life involves many 'comings and goings', as we make our way along the path of faith day by day, guided by God's Holy Spirit. This book of readings for Advent and Christmas invites us to make a journey through time, from the end to the very beginning of all things. The daily reflections work backwards from the traditional Advent focus of the 'Four Last Things'- death, judgement, heaven and hell - via Jesus' life, death and resurrection, to come at last to the incarnation and the events commemorated at Christmas itself. In the following days, the focus turns to Christ as the Word of God, present at the dawn of creation. Along the way, we 'visit' some of the actual Holy Land sites associated with Gospel events, drawing new insights from the familiar stories.

    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.

    My Sour-Sweet Days : George Herbert’s Poems Through Lent

    , , , ,
    George Herbert is one of the great 17th century poet-priests. His poems embrace every shade of the spiritual life, from love and closeness, to anger and despair, to reconciliation and hope. And his work is always rich with audacious playfulness: he seems to take God on, knowing God will win, as if he's having an argument with a faithful friend he knows is not going to leave. In much of theology and spirituality, God is a critical spectator to human lives, but for Herbert, his sense of relationship with God is primarily of a friendship that can never be broken. These are some of the themes Mark Oakley explores in this outstanding book. He offers a poem for every day in Lent, with a 2-page commentary on each of the 40 included.

    Keeping Advent and Christmas: Discovering the Rhythms and Riches of the Christian Seasons

Which prayer led to the creation of the Christmas pudding?Why is St Lucy remembered during Advent? What is the meaning of `boxing' on St Stephen's Day? Does Christmas really last until February? Leigh Hatts' comprehensively-researched book helps us to rediscover the Christian-based, seasonal customs buried deep within our culture and church life. Keeping Advent and Christmas is packed with fascinating details about the beliefs, rituals and traditions of liturgical days between `Stir-up Sunday' (the Sunday before Advent Sunday) and Candlemas (the official end of the Christmas period, on 2 February).

    The Treasures of Darkness : A Spiritual Companion for Life’s Watching and Waiting Times

    , ,
    I will give you the treasures of darkness and riches hidden in secret places, that you may know that it is I, the Lord, who calls you by your name. This verse from Isaiah led priest Barbara Mosse to question our assumptions about the dark times in life. We tend to associate darkness with the absence of God, yet the season of Advent is all about the unseen workings of God in preparation for new life and new hope. This book explores the many gifts of God that can be found not only during this season, but also at those times in life when we feel engulfed in darkness.

    Dementia : Living in the Memories of God

    ,
    Winner of the Michael Ramsay Prize 2016 Dementia is one of the most feared diseases in Western society today. Some have even gone so far as to suggest euthanasia as a solution to the perceived indignity of memory loss and the disorientation that accompanies it. In this book John Swinton develops a practical theology of dementia for caregivers, people with dementia, ministers, hospital chaplains, and medical practitioners as he explores two primary questions: ' Who am I when I've forgotten who I am?' What does it mean to love God and be loved by God when I have forgotten who God is?Offering compassionate and carefully considered theological and pastoral responses to dementia and forgetfulness, Swinton's Dementia: Living in the Memories of God redefines dementia in light of the transformative counter story that is the gospel.

    The Last Journey : Reflections for the Time of Grieving

    ,
    The need to express grief, to sing our sorrow, is as old as humanity. The Book of Psalms, sideby side with expressions of deepest praise, contains cries of unfathomable despair. Both are not only acceptable to God, but essential for our mental and spiritual health. In The Last Journey, John Bell explores the myriad of emotions that accompany loss, offeringus a way to grieve, to search through the struggle before us - and perhaps enabling us to findthe courage to face the world with a renewed sense of hope. This book is accompanied by an audio CD of 17 songs.

    Facing Death: Bible readings for special times

    ,
    This collection of 18 undated reflections draws comfort and encouragement from the Bible and from the author's own experience for those going through life-limiting illness and for their family and carers. With moving vulnerability and without denying the difficult reality of the situation, Rachel Boulding suggests a way to confront terminal illness with faith and hope in a loving God. Facing Death grew out of the overwhelming response to Rachel's Bible notes in New Daylight (May-August 2016). Readers recognised in her comments her courage to be authentic in the face of terminal illness, her appropriate vulnerability and her faith.
