A note from Wild Goose
 

 

 

The e-book version of The Sun Slowly Rises, our new book for Holy Week, is now available. As usual you can choose from three different formats or have them all, if you wish, for no extra charge. It's often useful to have the PDF, which retains the original page layout, even if you do your actual reading on a tablet or e-reader with one of the reflowable text formats.

We also remind you of more of our Lent and Easter resources.

Spring is coming

The light shines in the darkness
and the darkness will never put it out

In the early dawn they went to the tomb …

The sun slowly rises …
