    Windows on a Hidden World : Exploring the Advent Landscape

    ,
    As a priest, married to a vicar, with four school-age children, Jane Maycock is all too familiar with the struggle not to be engulfed by busyness in the run-up to Christmas. As a result, the reflections she has written here are engagingly infused with real-life happenings, even as they invite us to stop and consider what Advent really means. Drawing on the insights of biblical authors, poets such as Robert Southwell, and contemporary hymn writers including Timothy Dudley-Smith, this lovely book presents a series of windows through which we can explore the main ideas surrounding the season. We are taken through the themes of wilderness and of God’s choice, and examine the place of conflict and confrontation in Christian faith. We look deeply at the familiar nativity scene and at the idea of the second coming. Underpinning Windows on a Hidden World is the conviction that we are bound up in an intimate relationship with a God of love. And as we take a little time out – from 1 to 25 December – to explore the Advent landscape in these daily readings, we will be encouraged to respond to the wonder of God’s tender nearness with hope and joy.

    Whispers from the Edge of Eternity

    ,
    Whispers from the Edge of Eternity – Charles Ringma (Reflections on Life and Faith in a Precarious World) The Christian journey is far more complex than an evolutionary upward movement. There are strange contours in the road. Faith is the evidence of things unseen, but it also has its uncertainties, and our healing is far from complete. Moreover, we continue to live in a world where there is so much injustice. This meditational reader seeks to reflect something of this kind of textured picture of the Christian journey. Whispers from the Edge of Eternity contains daily Scripture readings and reflections on many issues of the Christian life. Throughout this book Charles Ringma mediates the wisdom of theologians, philosophers, novelists, and writers on Christian spirituality from across the centuries, challenging us to experience God not only times of prosperity, but also in the shadows of pain and suffering. Readers will be encouraged in the journey of discipleship by such diverse voices as St. Augustine, Blaise Pascal, Dorothy Day and Henri Nouwen.

    Advent and Christmas Wisdom with Henri Nouwen

    ,
    Henri J. M. Nouwen is one of the most beloved and well-read spiritual authors of our time. His works are popular among Christians of all denominations. This book of Advent and Christmas Wisdom will both challenge you and warm your heart during your annual preparation for the Lord's coming. Through the quotes, Nouwen share with the reader his own journey of waiting while seeking the Lord. Advent is that period of great anticipatory joy to prepare for the celebration of Christ's arrival in Bethlehem as a helpless infant. The date commemorating his birth begins the Christmas cycle of the liturgical year, a cycle that runs through the Sunday after the feast of the Epiphany. This book is designed to be used during the entire period from the First Sunday of Advent to the end of the Christmas season. Reflections for each day in this book begin with the words of Henri Nouwen taken from various sources of his writings. Following that quotation is an excerpt from Scripture related to the quote. Next is a small prayer based on the quote and the Scripture passage. Finally, an activity is suggested for applying the messages to one's daily life. All devotees of Nouwen will appreciate the applications made of his words of wisdom for daily living. Any Christian who is serious about his or her search for the Lord will cherish this book and want to use it from year to year.

    Advent and Christmas wisdom from GK Chesterton

    ,
    Advent and Christmas Wisdom from GK Chesterton is like an invitation to laugh and think from a friend and mentor. To quote the author: 'People are losing the power to enjoy Christmas through identifying it with enjoyment. When once they lose sight of the old suggestion that it is all about something, they naturally fall into blank pauses of wondering what it is all about. To be told to rejoice on Christmas Day is reasonable and intelligible, if you understand the name, or even look at the word. To be told to rejoice on the twenty-fifth of December is like being told to rejoice at quarter-past eleven on Thursday week. You cannot suddenly be frivolous unless you believe there is a serious reason for being frivolous.'

    GK Chesterton The New War on Christmas December 26 1925

    Barefoot Disciple: Walking the way of passionate humility

    ,
    In our celebrity-obsessed culture, humility is unfashionable and too-often dismissed or confused with the cringing, false humility of Uriah Heep. When genuine humility is energised with real passion, fresh and exciting light is shone on the challenge of following Jesus Christ today and humility is rediscovered as a healthy and life-giving virtue, capable of transforming our Blame-Someone-Else society. This is about humility as the deepest kind of realism. It will resonate profoundly with all who are hungry for truth...    Rowan Williams

    Advent and Christmas Wisdom from St Francis of Assisi

    ,
    The much loved Saint Francis of Assisi discarded the trappings of wealth and found Christ in the simple life. Through daily meditations, Scripture readings, and action-based spiritual exercises written for the Advent and Christmas season, we are each invited to examine our spiritual life, to listen to the wisdom of Saint Francis and to follow in the footsteps of Christ. St Francis of Assisi calls us to embrace a life of radical Christian discipleship. For Francis, to live the life of a disciple of Christ meant that one had to embrace the poverty and humility of Christ as made manifest in Christ's own birth. This Advent and Christmas, let Saint Francis guide you in finding the great expression of God's overflowing love for each one of us through reflection and prayer.
