    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.

Readers recognised in her comments her courage to be authentic in the face of terminal illness, her appropriate vulnerability and her faith.

    This book of 24 undated reflections draws comfort and inspiration from the Bible and from experience for those who are going through a time of bereavement, as well as providing insight for those wanting to support others who are bereaved. Jean Watson suggests how it might feel to get through the dark days and to move, however slowly, from `getting by' with help, to `getting a life' in which living with loss goes alongside the gains in terms of new insights on faith and life and a greater ability to empathise with others.

    Here and Now: meditations on living in the present

    , ,
    What is time? We measure it and we use it to measure an infinite number of things. We try to save it. We live in it. (Can we live without it?) Paul told us to redeem it but we have to admit that we do not perfectly understand what it means. Has it real existence of its own? Or is it something man has made up as an aid to measuring the sequence and duration of events or to describing historical incidents in relation to each other? Even for the greatest scientists it is hard to define, it remains to some extent a mystery—one of the most fascinating.

    Threshold of Light: daily readings from the Celtic tradition

    , ,
    This delightful book draws on one of out richest native spiritual traditions, the Celtic heritage, and presents extracts from Irish, Welsh and Scottish sources in a form suitable for daily meditation. The Celts had an extraordinarily clear spiritual vision, born of close association with nature. They thought in vivid images: making a fire, the wind in the wood, the song of the birds, the white waves of the sea. Yet the sense of light and the sense of incarnation which runs through so much Celtic writing is only possible because of its recognition of the dark of sin and evil, and also its acknowledgement of the power of the cross of the resurrection. A belief in the sacredness of the earth, a belief that the victory of the cross illumines and transforms the everyday, an awareness that despite the dark, heaven is not far from us, all this shines through these pages and brings us into closer contact with these fascinating people.

    Living Water: daily readings with St Teresa of Avila

    ,
    Teresa of Avila presents herself to us as a woman caught between her passion for the things of this world and an equal passion for God. After twenty years she surrendered totally to God and her life's journey is seen to be a journey into intimate union with God. The road that she traveled was that of prayer. Living Water is designed to introduce the reader to Teresa's teaching on prayer - a teaching which is completely personal and Christ-centred. Teresa understands prayer as a living relationship with God, and she suggests practical solutions to the problems that may arise from our own weaknesses or our lack of conviction and generosity. The sixty daily readings have been selected mainly from her Autobiography and The Way of Perfection. The editor, Sister Mary, provides a helpful introduction on Teresa's life and teaching and the distinguished Carmelite writer Ruth Burrows has contributed a foreword. This book is part of the acclaimed Enfolded in Love series of books which presents selections from the spiritual classics in a form suitable for daily reading and meditation.
