From earthworms  to CD-ROMs, from starfish to blizzards, from electrons to garden forks, from doubt to a shout of laughter ……

In the tradition of liturgical chants such as the ‘‘Advent Antiphons’’, Richard Skinner has created invocations inspired by creatures, conditions and objects in the world around us which reflect and are a metaphor for aspects of God or the Divine. Although the author comes from a Christian background and is most at home with the iconography and language of Christianity, these invocations, which incorporate symbolism from creation, science, technology and human psychology, and point to the God in all things, will resonate with individuals and groups of any or no particular religious or spiritual allegiance.

Richard Skinner is a writer, performer, comedian and counsellor. His previous publications include Echoes of Eckhart, published by Arthur James in association with Jim Cotter’’s Cairns Publications and The Logic of Whistling (Cairns, 2002). A ‘cradle Baptist’, he is now heavily involved in the life of a city-centre Anglican church, where considerable lay participation occurs. He is deeply influenced by the medieval mystics, particularly Meister Eckhart and Julian of Norwich.
