    Sacred North

    ,
    Whether you share Fr John's passion, and regard the saints as 'friends'; have a thirst for history, ancient places and the lifestyle of our ancestors; and/or are intrigued by the majesty of the environment at its wildest and most beautiful, you will doubtless enjoy Sacred North and its selection of the nearly 250 sites visited and photographed over seven research trips conducted between March 2016 and May 2017, and, hopefully, catch a little of the 'fire' that burned within these modern-day pilgrims. "The inspiration for Sacred North was fuelled by my passion for the early Christian saints. Despite a lifetime of research, we still encountered constant surprises on each of our three long journeys following in the footsteps of these holy men and women, revealing a rich heritage of ancient crosses, remote caves and hidden hermitages, healing wells, ancient chapels, and islands 'at the end of the world'."

    The Abbess of Whitby : A novel of Hild of Northumbria

    Chosen as handmaid to Eostre, the Saxon goddess, Hild would spend a year serving the goddess before she was wed. Her future was mapped out - until her father was murdered, and King Edwin claimed her as kin. Hild's first love was given a key command in Edwin's forces, and vanished from her life, wed to her elder sister. That same day, the court was baptised, ending the people's fertility religion and Hild's role. Life looked bleak - even more so when the husband to whom she was given was killed, along with her child. Hild resented the compulsory baptism, but became intrigued by the Iona priests, and eventually converted. Aidan, the charismatic figure who taught, and lived, a new kind of love, persuaded Hild to help spread the new faith. In thanks for a significant victory, King Oswy ordered her to found one of his new monasteries at Whitby. She would see the men she trained appointed by the Pope as missionary bishops, carrying the faith across Britain.

    Aidan, Bede, Cuthbert: Three Inspirational Saints

    ,
    In this rousing book, David Adam celebrates the lives and interweaving stories of Aidan, Bede and Cuthbert. Recalling, in a personal introduction, his ordination to the pastoral ministry in Durham Cathedral (the burial place of Bede and Cuthbert) and his thirteen years as Vicar of the Holy Island of Lindisfarne (where Aidan lived), the author communicates clearly his appreciation of these three great saints. They have much to teach us, he believes, about vision – about expanding our spiritual awareness and deepening our love for God.

    Walking the Edges: Living in the Presence of God

    ,
    Walking the Edges – Living in the Presence of God – David Adam What does it mean to live in the presence of God? Combining story with spiritual reflection, poems and prayers, Walking the Edges invites us to journey to the borderlands, the place inhabited by Christians willing to extend themselves in adventurous living for the sake of love. Here, on the edges of the unknown, God the great Other is ever to be found. Each time we open our eyes to beauty, to wonder, to mystery, our lives are renewed. Every time we fail to reach out beyond the solid and the comfortable, we kill the life that is in us though the outcome of various events in our lives may be unknown; God continually calls us from death to life, promising an abiding presence and glorious future. Walking the Edges draws on the stories of St Martin, St Ninian, St Patrick, St Oswald and St Cuthbert. It also offers an insight into David Adam’s childhood, his early life as a coal miner, and his unexpected call to the pastoral ministry which has been a blessing to so many around the world.
