    Breathing Under Water: Spirituality and the Twelve Steps

    ,
    We are all addicted in some way. When we learn to identify our addiction, embrace our brokenness and surrender to God, we begin to bring healing to ourselves and or world. In Breathing Under Water, Richard Rohr shows how the gospel principles in the Twelve Steps can free anyone from addiction - from an obvious dependence on alcohol or drugs to the more common but less visible addiction that we have to sin.

    Come let us age! An invitation to grow old boldly

    , ,
    In this unique book, Wanda Nash, a well-established writer on spirituality in her late seventies, reflects on growing old with faith and a positive spirit. This compelling invitation to grow old boldly – full of her own experiences and insights – includes Wanda's reflection on her encounter later in life with terminal cancer, and her thoughts on coping with the daily challenges of living a Christian life in her illness and in ageing. Demonstrating a profound sense of the value and purposefulness of 'old age', the author's indomitable spirit is matched only by fresh vision of the love of God in Jesus Christ. Until her death in June 2015, Wanda Nash was an author and speaker on a range of subjects including stress and spirituality. Having been the UK Chair of the International Stress Management Association, she authored a number of significant books, including Christ, Stress and Glory, At Ease with Stress, Come, Let us Play!, Simple Tools for Stillness and Silence as a Meeting Place. These reflections have been lovingly edited by Wanda's daughter, Poppy, and her friend Debbie Thrower, bringing to life the wisdom, faith and humour of old age for future generations.

    An Altar in the World

    , ,
    In this highly acclaimed and lyrical book, the best-selling author Barbara Brown Taylor reveals the countless ways we can discover divine depths in the small things we do and see every day. People go to extraordinary lenghts, she writes, to discover this treasure. 'They will spend hours launching prayers into the heavens. They will travel half way around the world to visit a monastery in India...The last place most people will look is right under their feet, in the everyday activities, accidents and encounters of their lives...the reason so many of us cannot see the red X marks the spot is because we're standing on it.' An Altar in the the World shows us how heaven and earth meet in such ordinary occurrences as hanging out the wahing, doing the supermarket shop, feeding an animal, losing our way. It will transfrom our understanding of ourselves and the word we live in and renew our sense of wonder at the extraordinary gift of life.

    Embracing the Ordinary: Lessons from the champions of everyday life

    The ordinary is always the exceptional in disguise.

    Celebrity and glamour are the buzzwords of our culture, whereas everyday life gets a bad press – often devalued as dreary and burdensome. Yet many writers and artists have celebrated the ordinary, and many philosophers have offered insights into the rewards of paying attention to the here and now. 

    With characteristic wit and earthiness, Michael Foley – author of bestseller The Age of Absurdity – draws on the work of ‘champions of the ordinary’, such as James Joyce and Marcel Proust, to encourage delight in the oddity of the everyday world. With astute observation and subversive glee, Foley brings fresh insights to the banality of everyday speech, the ludicrousness of snobbery, love and sex, and the pleasures to be found in the everyday environments of city, office and home. It is all more fascinating, comical and mysterious than you think.

    Farmageddon: The True Costs of Cheap Meat

    We no longer know for certain what is entering the food chain and what we are eating. We are reaching a tipping point as the farming revolution threatens our countryside, health and the quality of our food.
    • Our health is under threat: antibiotics used worldwide are routinely given to industrially farmed animals, contributing to the emergence of deadly antibiotic-resistant superbugs.
    • Wildlife is being systemically destroyed: a chemical assault has decimated the wild insect population.
    • Cereals that could feed billions are ow increasingly grown as animal fodder.
    Farmageddon is a terrifying investigative journey behind the closed doors of a runaway industry across the world - from the UK, Europe and the USA, to China and South America. It is both a wake-up call to change our current food production and eating practices and an attempt to find a way to a better farming future.

    Fresh Bread: and Other Gifts of Spiritual Nourishment

    ,
    Joyce Rupp writes: 'When I first wrote Fresh Bread, I did so with the hope that it would offer prayerful support to other who also wanted to care for their inner self. This intention has grown more relevant with time. So much has changed since this book was first published. Life is busier, noisier, and more demanding of our time and energy. A fast-paced culture tries to convince us that silence and solitude are obsolete. In the midst of the transitions and changes that the passage of twenty years has brought, I see an ongoing need to care for our deepest selves. The ordinary images of life contained in this book offer a way of connecting with our deepest selves. Every day is an opportunity to turn the pages of Fresh Bread and find refreshment and solace for our spirit.'

    Gift from the Sea

    ,
    First published in 1955 and an instant bestseller, Gift from the Sea is a classic, wise book for women about how to flourish in life, how to balance life, work, motherhood; about finding space to think and breathe. Holidaying by the sea, and taking inspiration from the shells she finds on the seashore, Anne Morrow Lindbergh meditates on youth and age, love and marriage, peace, solitude and contentment. Her insights – into aspects of the modern world that threaten to overwhelm us, the complications of technology, the ever multiplying commitments that take us from our families – are as relevant today as they ever were, perhaps even more so. By recording her thoughts during a brief escape from everyday demands, Ann Morrow Lindbergh helps readers find a space for contemplation and creativity within their own lives.

    Giving Attention: Becoming what we truly are

    , ,
    The importance of the present moment is a recurring theme in the work of the renowned spiritual writer Michael Mayne. A wise pastor, he observes that 'we are forever pushing through the present moment so that we hardly ever live in it' and we fail to notice the presence of Christ in the moment that is now. In Giving Attention, he invites us to appreciate each moment and to experience our days as grace-filled gifts, full of opportunity to experience God's loving embrace in order to become our best selves, the person we 'truly are'.

    God Doesn’t Do Waste: Redeeming the Whole of Life

    ,
    Meet 'the Bookless Bunch', a very ordinary family who went green. When God challenged him over his attitude to the environment, Dave Bookless did a total rethink. This led to major changes, not only in his family's lifestyle but also eventually in his career: full time involvement in the global A Rocha movement that aims to care for God's fragile world. But in one sense this book isn't about going green at all. It's a personal account of a life lived in relationship. It's about roots and belonging, suffering and healing, identity and meaning, faith and doubt. It's about how in God's economy nothing need be wasted. It's about the messiness that each human being wades through in every area of life, and about a God who can take all that seems most wasteful and useless, and recycle it into something of infinite worth.
