    Not a Tame Lion: A Lent course

    'We would all like a religion that kept us within our comfort zone. But just as C.S. Lewis's Aslan is not a tame lion, neither is the Christ of the gospels always a comfortable Saviour, saying and doing things that are often unexpected and challenging. 'Nor is this a comfortable Lent course. Lent, of course, was never intended to be a time of comfort. It was traditionally a time of sackcloth and ashes and rumblings in the stomach, a drab, grey run-up to the glorious resurrection theme of Easter. Discomfort is much less fashionable nowadays. But whatever your Lenten attitude to chocolate or alcohol maybe, for this Lent at least, you will be willing to submit your spirit to a little bit of mental exercise and your mind to a little bit of spiritual challenge.' Not a Tame Lion is the latest Lent course from Hilary Brand. Based around three films: The Chronicles of Narnia's The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Prince Caspian, and Shadowlands (Attenborough cinema version), the course aims to bring ideas from C.S Lewis's writing to a wider contemporary audience. Each film clip is related to one of the sayings of Jesus and there is introductory material to be read before each session, as well as a wide range of discussion starters and questions. Topics covered range from the challenging – suffering, God's absence, hell – to the distinctly unfashionable – sin, judgement and the devil. Each session ends with a brief meditation. An engaging and original resource for Lent. PLEASE NOTE: DVDS OF THE FILMS ARE NOT INCLUDED

    Barefoot Prayers: A Meditation a Day for Lent and Easter

    "Barefoot Prayers comes from someone with his feet firmly on the ground yet exposed to mystery and to God. These prayers are earthy, with a vulnerability and openness: vibrant with the humus of the earth and the breath of the Spirit." David Adam 'These are prayers with the all-too-rare quality of being freshly minted and imagined in a different register. They're evocative, playful and searching, and they demand a return visit.' John Pritchard, Bishop of Oxford. 'In this book humility and grace come together to take us on a journey through Lent that will lead us closer to God. This is no easy journey, it is rooted in reality and honesty...There are moments of wonder and joy, times of challenge and struggle, and at the end a simple Amen.' Ruth Gee, President of the Methodist Conference.

    Living Easter through the year

We have a Bank Holiday.

Reflections on the events and their aftermath, suggestions of ways to celebrate the resurrection (including a month of daily readings), two courses for small groups – one based on gospel accounts of the resurrection, the other around art, poetry, music and film – prayer activities, drama, poetry, meditations, cartoons: all are provided here are reminders of how gloriously Easter can illuminate our everyday lives.

    The Things He Said: The story of the first Easter Day

    ,
    Many a popular Good Friday devotion is based on Jesus' seven last words from the Cross. But there isn't the same emphasis on the words Jesus spoke on Easter Day - words, as it were, from an empty tomb. Following the resurrection, we would expect the triumphant 'I have risen from the dead!' Yet Jesus' statements are so different, so apparently unremarkable, that they are often overlooked. Each Gospel gives a different account of the very first words of the risen Lord. This book reveals how these words, and the events that followed, speak to us as powerfully as the words from the cross. They illuminate our understanding of the resurrection, helping us to penetrate its meaning and significance. They also speak of God's purpose for us today as we try to discover what it means to be an Easter people. The Christian faith stands or falls on the resurrection of Jesus; without it, says St Paul, we are to be most pitied. In this revelatory book of surprising reflections, Stephen Cotterell's retelling of the Easter story encourages us to slow down and hear it properly - perhaps for the very first time.
