    Seize the Day

    , , , ,
    Dietrich Bonhoeffer's faith-driven resistance to the Nazis during World War II resulted in his execution. Multitudes have been inspired by the hauntingly powrful words of this man who was willing to die for his convictions. In this collection of 365 meditations Dr Charles Ringma allows us to experience the power of Bonhoeffer's words in a way that challenges us to live out our discipleship daily - combining personal spirituality with an active concern for those around us. These daily meditations on Bonhoeffer's writings may make you uncomfortable. But if you are willing to wrestle - as Bonhoeffer did - with what it means to be a follower of Christ, you'll be empowered to seize each day.

    The Selfless Way of Christ

    ,
    Downward Mobility and the Spiritual Life by Henri Nouwen In these short reflections Herne Nouwen explores the theme of downward mobility as the way of Christ, and the things that tempt us away from it, namely, the lure of success, of power, of being needed and important. Originally serialized in the magazine Sojourners, Nouwen wrote the articles during his years as a professor at Yale Divinity School. There he enjoyed academic success and found fame as a spiritual writer, but was struggling to find his true vocation. Here he seeks to explain for himself and his readers how choosing the downwardly mobile path can, conversely, be the means of growth and new life in Christ.

    Merton’s Palace of Nowhere

    ,
    Spiritual identity is the quest to know who we are, to find meaning in life and to overcome that sense of "is that all there is?" At the heart of this quest are found Thomas Meron's illuminating insights leading from an awareness of the false and illusory self as the way to a realization of the true self. For twenty-five years, Merton's Palace of Nowhere has been the standard for exploring, reflecting on, and understanding this rich vein of Merton's thought.

    Listening for the Heartbeat of God

    , , , ,
    Listening for the Heartbeat of God presents a spirituality for today, modelled on the vital characteristics of Celtic spirituality through the centuries. there is an emphasis on the essential goodness of creation and of humanity, made in the image of God. The book traces the lines of Celtic spirituality from the British Church in the fourth century through to the twentieth century, in the founder of the Iona community, George MacLeod. Philip Newell finds Celtic spiritual roots in the New Testament, in the mysticism of St John the Evangelist. John was especially remembered as the one who lay against Jesus at the Last Supper and heard the heartbeat of God. So he becomes a Celtic image of listening to God in all of life. This fresh angle on Celtic spirituality - linking figures in the Bible and in the British Christian history - will be warmly welcomed by all who are concerned to refresh the roots of their faith. The Revd Dr J Philip Newell is a poet, scholar and teacher. Formerly Warden of Iona Abbey, he is now Companion Theologian for the American Spirituality Centre of Casa del Sol in the high desert of New Mexico. Newell has won international acclaim for his work in the field of Celtic spirituality.

    The Selfless Self: Meditation and the Opening of the Heart

    , ,
    by Laurence Freeman In The Selfless Self, the Benedictine monk and teacher Laurence Freeman describes the essential dynamic of contemplative prayer. This kind of prayer, he says, is like exploring a sea-cave discovered in the holidays of childhood. Though its recesses may seem dark and deep, something calls to our spirit of adventure and entices us inward to a hidden treasure. Meditation is the spiritual journey into the cave of the heart, which has its own hidden and unlit places. Though we are entering the unknown, each successive step of faith brings light into our darkness and dispels our primal fears. Then the journey becomes a two-way process: with enlightened vision, we return to the world with renewed understanding of our place in it and our responsibilities towards it. We are better able to resist its illusory attractions and to discover instead its true joys. Silence, stillness and simplicity are the keys that open the cave of the heart. Laurence Freeman is a universal guide with whom anyone can discover the world-transforming power of meditation.

    Whispers from the Edge of Eternity

    ,
    Whispers from the Edge of Eternity – Charles Ringma (Reflections on Life and Faith in a Precarious World) The Christian journey is far more complex than an evolutionary upward movement. There are strange contours in the road. Faith is the evidence of things unseen, but it also has its uncertainties, and our healing is far from complete. Moreover, we continue to live in a world where there is so much injustice. This meditational reader seeks to reflect something of this kind of textured picture of the Christian journey. Whispers from the Edge of Eternity contains daily Scripture readings and reflections on many issues of the Christian life. Throughout this book Charles Ringma mediates the wisdom of theologians, philosophers, novelists, and writers on Christian spirituality from across the centuries, challenging us to experience God not only times of prosperity, but also in the shadows of pain and suffering. Readers will be encouraged in the journey of discipleship by such diverse voices as St. Augustine, Blaise Pascal, Dorothy Day and Henri Nouwen.

    Wayfaring: a gospel journey into life

    , ,
    Wayfaring – A Gospel Journey into Life – Margaret Silf Wayfaring invites you to make your own journey of prayer and lived experience alongside Jesus, from his birth, through his earthly ministry, suffering and death, and into resurrected life. Journeys are made very simply: by placing one foot in front of the other. As you journey, Wayfaring enables you to reflect, step by step, on what the Gospel story means for you. Inspired by the spirituality of St Ignatius of Loyola, the book welcomes all ‘wayfarers’ – those just setting out on the adventure of faith, those who are already seasoned travellers, those of all Christian traditions or of none, those ‘inside’ and those ‘outside’ the church.

    The Extra Mile: A 21st Century Pilgrimage

    ,
    Peter Stanford makes a modern-day pilgrimage around some of the most ancient religious sites in Britain, to take the spiritual temperature of an age often described as secular and sceptical. Do the present-day pilgrims he meets en route go simply in search of history, or does their journey have another significance rooted in the unholy times in which we live now? Are their numbers growing as more conventional church-going declines? The Extra Mile is the evocative, sometimes humorous, sometimes challenging story of one individual's pilgrimage in search of faith in Britain today. As he walks between Neolithic stones, ruined abbeys and miracle wells, Stanford explores the link between past and present belief and reflects on the spiritual state we are in.

    Barefoot Disciple: Walking the way of passionate humility

    ,
    In our celebrity-obsessed culture, humility is unfashionable and too-often dismissed or confused with the cringing, false humility of Uriah Heep. When genuine humility is energised with real passion, fresh and exciting light is shone on the challenge of following Jesus Christ today and humility is rediscovered as a healthy and life-giving virtue, capable of transforming our Blame-Someone-Else society. This is about humility as the deepest kind of realism. It will resonate profoundly with all who are hungry for truth...    Rowan Williams

    Don’t Forgive Too Soon: Extending the Two Hands that Heal

    , ,
    This is an illustrated book by Matthew Linn, Sheila Fabricant Linn and Dennis Linn. They describe it as follows: 'When we are hurt, we are tempted to either act as a passive doormat or to strike back and escalate the cycle of violence. We can avoid both of these temptations and find creative responses to hurts by moving through the five stages of forgiveness. In so doing, we discover the two hands of nonviolence: one hand that stops the person who hurts us and the other that reaches out, calms that person and offers new life. This book has healing processes so simple that children can use them."

I am standing before a tree full of angels dazzling me with their glorious presence. - From A Tree Full of Angels "A personalized invitation to stop, look and listen for God in the here and now... (Wiederkehr) wants us to gather up the crumbs, the little things in our lives, and realise they have the makings of a banquet". Abbot Jerome Kodell, OSB, Subiaco Abbey, Arkansas "Challenges us to remember the people in our past with a love that knows we will meet again, and look forward to the future with hope that God who so feeds us today has sent us an even greater banquet".
