    Hold Nothing Back: writings by Dorothy Day

    Dorothy Day (1897-1980) was a well-known American journalist, activist, and Catholic convert whose cause for sainthood has been endorsed by the US bishops. She wrote numerous articles over a period of several decades for the prominent lay Catholic magazine Commonweal. Hold Nothing Back is gleaned from those writings. It includes reflections on her life as a single mother, her time in jail for civil disobedience, her struggles to keep the Catholic Worker movement she co-founded afloat, and her travels on crowded buses to report from the front lines about labour disputes, racial inequality, and poverty. At the heart of whatever Day wrote lies a profound and prophetic faith. Hold Nothing Back gives a glimpse of her remarkable humanity and endurance, and of the vibrant spirituality that underlay them.

    Home : the quest to belong

    ,
    Where is Home?This question troubles many of us. We may live far from where we grew up, away from those we love or in a culture not our own. But we all need somewhere to belong, to find a sense of home in this world. Jo Swinney was born in the UK, but grew up in Portugal and France. She went to an English boarding school, did a gap year in southern Africa and in her twenties studied theology in Canada, where she met her American husband. Now back in the UK, she's had more reason than most to wonder what 'home' really means. Is home where you come from - where you live now - where the people you love are - or what?Interweaving a frank and poignant retelling of her own story with theological and psychological insights, Jo's original and authentic exploration of home in all its many and varied forms is a heartfelt call to find our home in the things that are truly of most value.

    I Thought There Would be Cake: navigating the ups and downs of adult life

    , , ,
    EVER THOUGHT LIFE ISN'T TURNING OUT QUITE AS YOU EXPECTED? Growing up, Katharine Welby-Roberts imagined that being an adult was one big party. But depression, anxiety and crippling self-doubt led her to alienate herself from others. To replay events and encounters as nightmares, occasionally, to be unable to leave the house. Aware of the cacophony of voices in her head, Katharine invites us to join her as she journeys to the depths of her soul. Here, with instinctive honesty and humour, she confronts the parts of her story that hinder her most.
    As she charts a course that offers ways of coping with everyday issues, we are encouraged to embrace our own self-worth. To recognise the value of our existence. To let ourselves be loved. Exactly as we are.

    In All Seasons For All Reasons

    , ,
    Inspired by Jesus' prayer, his disciples asked him, `Lord, teach us to pray' (Luke 11.1). This book gives many time-honoured answers to that request. There is a wealth here of fresh ways to pray, such as using nature and dreams as inspiration and getting in touch with one's emotions. Key topics such as distractions, dryness and doubt, as well as joy and finding God in all things, are covered. The Church's tradition, from the Our Father to the Eucharist, the saints and pilgrimages, is offered as a resource for the individual. `God meets you where you are. And the fact that you are holding this book in your hand means you are already open to that encounter.'From the Introduction

    In Every Corner Sing: a ‘Poet’s Corner’ collection

    ,
    Succeeding Ronald Blythe's Word From Wormingford, one of the most beloved columns in contemporary journalism, was always going to be a formidable challenge for any writer. Yet the new occupier of the back page slot of the Church Times, the priest-poet Malcolm Guite, immediately gained the affections and loyalty of a discerning audience accustomed to literary excellence. His lucid, perceptive and imaginative musings follow a similar pattern to the sonnets for which he is so renowned. In his own words, he treats these 500 word essays 'a little in the spirit of the sonnet, with a sense of development, of a 'turn' part way through, and a sense that the end ‘re-visits and re-reads the opening'. These draw together everyday events and encounters, landscape, journeys, poetry, stories, memory and a sense of the sacred, and fuses them to create richly satisfying portraits of the familiar that at the same time opens a doorway in to a new and enchanted world.

    In the Heart of the Temple: my spiritual vision for today’s world

    , ,
    Highly provocative and practical spiritual writing on today's most pressing issues The spiritual vision that emerges in this book is a spirituality of both action and contemplation. For to be at the heart of the temple without being in the heart of the world, the author believes, is at most only half a spiritual life. Rather we are required to see what is going on around us and to do everything we can to square it with the will of a loving God for the world God created. Both highly provocative and immensely practical, In the Heart of the Temple addresses today's most pressing questions, challenging readers of every religious and political persuasion to personal, spiritual, social and moral change.

    Incarnational Ministry : Being with the church

    ,
    The bestselling writer and popular broadcaster Sam Wells reflects theologically and practically on the essence of discipleship and Christian ministry today. Those in ministry, like Jesus, are called to the task of `being with': with God, with the church, with the created world and those who live in it. Incarnational Ministry explores the concept of `being with' in eight dimensions: presence, attention, mystery, delight, participation, partnership, enjoyment and glory. It challenges readers to deeper discipleship and more vital ministry as they explore what it means to be with the troubled, the hurt, the afflicted and the dying - and all who are embraced by the Church's incarnational ministry.

    Into the Depths : A Chaplain’s Reflections on Death, Dying and Pastoral Care

    ,
    Pastoral care is central to Christian ministry, and it can take ministers to the edges of human life. Chaplains often work on the edge of institutions, and frequently on the edge of society. In this thoughtful and practical book, Rosie Deedes draws on her experience as a chaplain in prisons and hospices and reflects on the nature of pastoral care and the contribution chaplaincy can make to the life and ministry of the Church. Focusing particularly on the taboo subject of death and dying, she shows how ministers such as clergy and chaplains are called to go 'into the depths' of human life to share the love and compassion of God. Reflecting on a number of pastoral encounters, the book invites ministers to confront the depths of human life and to develop resilience that enables them to engage in depth with all they encounter.
