Science and faith in a time of climate change

(Book & e-book)

Katharine M Preston

Katharine Preston challenges us to think more deeply about the human condition and our choices in this time of ever-increasing climate disturbance.

Moved by the landscapes surrounding her home, Wild Orchard Farm, and drawing on both her ecological and theological training, she writes for scientists leery of faith, people of faith who know and love the miracles of science, and anybody who shares the vision of the planet as a sacred community.

Little Guy (Downloadable book)

Journey of hope

Emma Major

E-book: Little Guy is a series of 25 images and poems that emerged over a period of two weeks, with a sense of urgency. Then, less than a month later, coronavirus appeared in the UK. We had to distance from each other; isolate, alone at home in a situation none of us has ever faced before. The rush to get Little Guy onto paper started to make sense.

Many people battle with anxiety even in the best of circumstances; it is part of being a sensitive, fragile human being in a world that can be both frightening and full of wonder.

Little Guy starts off anxious and depressed, before moving through hope and trust to a point where he is able to relate to the world and thrive again.

Little Guy journeys with us.

Emma Major is a mum, wife, friend, pioneer lay minister, blind wheelchair user and poet. She has recorded audio descriptions of every picture in the Little Guy book to ensure that everyone can access it.
