    At Sea With God

    ,
      At Sea With God cleverly considers the notion of seafaring as a model for our spiritual journey and invites us to leave the safety of the boatyard for the uncertainty and risk of a voyage across uncharted waters to a mysterious destination. Drawing on seven vivid images, At Sea with God casts a beautiful new light on: The vessels that carry each of us through a lifetime of events Cargo, which has the potential to sustain us or to weigh us down The process of setting sail for unfamiliar destinations Navigating uncharted waters, even when the best path is difficult to discern Taming fear during storms and shipwrecks Rejoicing in the serenity of calm seas and dealing with the times when we feel we are going nowhere Choosing the best time and place to drop anchor Written in gentle prose reminiscent of Henri Nouwen's and C. S. Lewis's, At Sea with God offers a short course in strengthening the soul using meditative tradition. For Christians of all denominations, Margaret Silf has created a safe harbour to savour again and again.

    Befriending Our Desires

    , , , ,
    Desire is at the heart of what it is to be human. The power of desire, while embodied and sensuous, is God-given and the key to all human spirituality. Humanity is blessed with a deep longing that is infinite in extent and can only ultimately be satisfied in God. Befriending Our Desires portrays the intimate connection between desire and the spiritual journey. Drawing on Hebrew and Christian Scriptures, Christian spiritual classics (with some reference to Buddhist spirituality), poetry, and other literature, plus personal and pastoral experience, Philip Sheldrake explores the role of desire in relation to God, prayer, sexuality, making choices, and responding to change.

    The Making Of Us: who we can become when life doesn’t go as planned

    , , ,
    Beautiful Things Can Emerge from Life Not Going as Planned.  When life takes one too many unexpected turns, do you find yourself saying, "I don't know who I am anymore"? In the wake of shattered dreams, do you wonder how you will keep going-and if you'll ever find purpose or joy again? After infertility, an international move, and a professional change shook Sheridan Voysey's world, he realized that he couldn't reconcile his expectations with the life he was living. Feeling lost, he decided to pair his spiritual journey with a literal one: a hundred-mile pilgrimage along the northeast coast of England. Inspired by the life and influence of the seventh-century monk Cuthbert, Sheridan travelled on foot from the Holy Island of Lindisfarne to Durham. Taking his friend DJ along for the journey, and keeping a journal by his side, Sheridan discovered not resolution but peace. Not ambition but purpose. Not shouts of convictions but whispers of the presence of God. In The Making of Us, Sheridan invites us to join him as he walks along England's shores and we trace the borders of our own hearts. Part pilgrim's journal, part call to reflection, The Making of Us eloquently reminds us of the beauty of journeying into uncertainty, the freedom of letting go, and the wonder of losing our identity only to discover who we really are.

    When Words Fail: God and the World of Beauty

    , , ,
    Is there a sharp divide between the 'sacred' and the 'secular'? this book explores how it is possible for human beings to know God, and not just in the more conventional and obvious ways of prayer and sacrament, scripture and theology. 'When words fail' - it is then that signs and symbols, images and sounds, pictures and dreams, have to take over.  This book points the way to deeper knowlege of God through such other media, especially literature and music, art and architecture.

    Sabbath Time: A hermitage journey of retreat, return, communion

    ,
    'A serious health breakdown in my thirties, where I spent over six months in recovery, made me aware of the need for greater balance in my life. Yet since then, I have continued to do too much, say “yes” instead of “no” too often, and I have struggled to set aside time for rest, prayer and reflection. But finally, after a year of thought and planning, I decided to take a whole six months off...' From the Author Preface   Description  Being left alone to embark on a reflective journey is a great gift – particularly in our age, where remaining connected is such a driving expectation. Charles decided to take a whole six months off and to spend much of this time in a hermitage on friends’ property. To enter a space of disconnection is both a scary and an exhilarating experience. And to 'down' tools and be still without an agenda of expectations is wonderfully open and freeing. It is also walking into mystery. Who knows what might happen? About the Author  Charles Ringma has taught in universities, colleges and seminaries in Asia, Australia and N. America. And he has worked in urban and overseas mission for several decades. He is Emeritus Professor of Regent College, Vancouver, is a Franciscan Tertiary (tssf) and companion of Northumbria Community, Brisbane. Besides working for justice, he plants rain forest trees, grows vegetables and pens books on Christian spirituality.
