    Taste and See

    ,
    Adventuring into Prayer – by Margaret Silf We want to pray…but how? Taste and See spreads out a feast of possibilities to encourage us to explore ways, both new and old, of coming closer to the heart of God, of ourselves and of each other, in personal prayer. The feast is rich with the flavours of personal experience, and spiced with illustrations and suggestions for further exploration. It will be welcomed by those just setting out on the journey of prayer, as well as by seasoned travellers looking for companionship on the way. It can be used by individuals on their own or by groups who want to journey together. The book begins with ways of coming to inner stillness, and developing the art of reflective living. Then, starting from wherever we are, in our everyday experience, it explores very specific and accessible ways of bringing this experience into the transforming light of God’s presence. Imaginative ways of praying with Scripture are introduced and problems in prayer are honestly faced. What does intercessory prayer really mean, and can prayer make sense when our lives are in ruins? Can we really have a conversation with God? How does prayer relate to the newspaper headlines we read each day? And was Paul really serious when he urged us to ‘pray continually’? The author shares stories and examples from her own experience of living and praying in a world which is recognizably solid and real, but which is also ‘charged with the Glory of God’. She invites us to embark on our own adventure into prayer and promises that we will not be disappointed.

    Spirituality and Remembering

    This Grove Booklet grew out of a sense of that since memory is such an essential part of our being human, it must be important in our spirituality. Spirituality concerns the way we live out what we believe about God and the way he relates to us. Much of our internal reflecting depends on what we carry in our memories and so God must be concerned about them as he is about the rest of us. But some many people look back with nostalgia, or pain, or large parts of our memory may be suppressed. Chapters cover Memory ...and the Christian faith ... and God ... the Bible ...and prayer ...and pastoral care ...and identity.

    Streams of Living Water

    ,
    Isn't it a shame that the rich tapestry of Christian belief and practice has so often been rigidly carved up, crammed into denominational boxes and padlocked shut? Richard Foster addresses this by identifying six major strands of Christian spirituality within the worldwide church that have contributed at various times and places across the centuries. They are: The Contemplative tradition - or the Prayer-filled life, The Holiness tradition - or the Virtuous life, The Charismatic tradition - or the Spirit-empowered life, The Social Justice tradition - or the Compassionate life, The Evangelical tradition - or the Word-centred life, The Incarnational tradition - or the Sacramental life, Foster's celebration of spiritual life incorporates history's most significant Christian figures and movements. It serves as a refreshing example of how real peopl have evaded preconceived ideas and lived wonderful Christ-centred lives in spite of constricting labels.

    The Wounded Healer

    ,
    What does it mean to be a healer in the modern world? In this hope-filled and profoundly simple book, Henri Nouwen offers a radically fresh interpretation of modern ministry. Here he inspires devoted men and women who want to be of service in their church or community, but have found the traditional ways of ministry alienating and ineffective. According to Nouwen, ministers are called to identify the suffering in their own hearts and make that recognition the starting point of their service. For Nouwen, ministers must be willing to go beyond their professional, somewhat aloof role and leave themselves open as fellow human beings with the same wounds and suffering as those they serve. In other words, we heal from our wounds. Generally recognized as one of Nouwen’s finest works, this book is a modern classic.

This engaging study, full of practical wisdom, shows how the concept of 'rule of life' can do just that when used aright. It explores the practical need and biblical basis for 'rule,' looks at what makes 'rule' helpful, and guides the reader through the process of building a personal rule of life.

    The Radical Disciple: Wholehearted Christian Living

    ,
    by John Stott So many of us avoid radical discipleship by being selective, choosing rather those areas in which commitment is appealing, and steering well clear of areas where it will be costly. But because Jesus is Lord, we have no liberty to pick and choose. The author looks at eight characteristics of Christian discipleship, which are commonly neglected, yet deserve to be taken seriously.

    The Promise of Paradox: a celebration of contradictions in the Christian life

    First published in 1980 - and reissued here with a feisty new introductory essay - The Promise of Paradox launched Parker J. Palmer s career as an author and his ongoing exploration of the contradictions that vex and enrich our lives. In this probing and heartfelt book, the distinguished writer, teacher, and activist examines some of the challenging questions at the core of Christian spirituality. How do we live with the apparent opposition between good and evil, scarcity and abundance, individuality and community, death and new life? We can hold them as paradoxes, not "either/ors", allowing them to open our minds and hearts to new ways of seeing and being. Animated by the insights of the Trappist monk Thomas Merton, The Promise of Paradox explores spiritual questions in the open and generous spirit of Christian mysticism, challenging forms of Christianity  that are closed and even cruel. There are no easy answers to these questions, and there may be no answers at all. But with the poet Rainer Maria Rilke, Palmer advocates the rich possibilities that emerge when we learn to "live the questions".
