    Christ is Risen: A4 signed print

    , ,
    Created: 2013 Words: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, so that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16 Background: This piece is a celebration of the Easter message, that Christ is risen. The words are illuminated in Spring colours, with reminders of the season, flowers and birds in flight, intermingled with blood red flowing from the cross where the wounds of Christ would have been. The cross is deliberately empty to remind us of the resurrection and there is a shape around it that echoes a holding cross to remind us that we can ‘hold on’ to His promises. Printing and Sizing: This item is 210mm x 297mm and is printed on 300gsm card stock using our in-house printer. Each print is individually signed by Mary Fleeson and is packaged in a cellophane wrapper with a descriptive backing sheet explaining more about the piece and the Scriptorium.

    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.

    Say it to God: In search of prayer

    ,
    The Archbishop of Canterbury's Lent Book 2018 In Say it to God, Benedictine monk Luigi Gioia, provides a welcome encouragement to all those who feel the need to freshen their practice of prayer. For Gioia, prayer is not about methods or techniques, but trusting that God is truly interested in everything that happens to us and wants to hear about it, however seemingly frivolous a problem may first appear. Arranged in chapters suitable for daily reading over Lent, the book leads the reader into the theological aspects of prayer and how it relates to Christ, to the Holy Spirit and to the Church. This is done without using complex theological concepts but simply through scriptural quotations.

Keeping Lent and Easter is packed with fascinating details about the beliefs, rituals and traditions of liturgical days between Quinquagesima, or Transfiguration Sunday, (the Sunday before Lent) and Corpus Christi (the feast of thanksgiving on the Thursday after Trinity Sunday).

    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.
