    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.

    Breathing Deep: Life in the Spirit of Easter

    ,
    Breathing Deep draws on the stories told in the gospels about the resurrection of Jesus. From the time of their writing and first telling, these stories have been seen as invitations to allow the resurrection to reshape the way that life can be lived. The forty reflections in this book imagine those invitations as gifts for us now, opening up the possibility of something new in our lives, our dreams, our hopes. But they also come with a provocative edge, challenging us to find the courage to live in the spirit of the resurrection when everything seems to gravitate towards death and destruction. The resurrection of Jesus was an extraordinary happening in history, but more than a one-off event. Resurrection reveals that the better, more peaceful and hopeful world we dream of is possible, and that it must first take shape within us.

    Dust that Dreams of Glory: Reflections on Lent and Holy Week

    In these previously unpublished writings, Michael Mayne reflects on Lent and Holy Week, when Christians prepare to follow Jesus to the cross. Lent, he finds, is not a bleak, forbidding time, but a positive and optimistic opportunity for remembering who and what we truly are: 'Dust, yes, but dust that dreams of glory. Dust that has a deep, aching sense both of its mortality and of its reaching after the God glimpsed in Jesus whom one day we shall see face to face. Lent is a time for remembering where our true home lies, and for setting our face once again in that direction.' Dust that Dreams of Glory also includes sequences of reflections for Good Friday and on the seven last words of Christ, which will be welcomed as a profoundly rich and inspiring resource for worship and personal devotion during Holy Week.
