Step Gently in the World

Resources for Holy Week

Sally Foster-Fulton

Reflections, meditations, prayers and liturgies for Holy Week following the journey of Jesus from Palm Sunday to Easter Day.

A book which affirms that, even in the darkness of betrayal and denial and death, we can rise up and live different lives: where the justice, peace and love poured out in Christ’s life can be resurrected in our own.

Stages on the Way transspaser

Enemy of Apathy (songbook & CD)

John L Bell / Graham Maule

The songs are biblically based and find their roots in the accounts of the last weeks of Christ’s earthly ministry and the earliest days of the young church. However, they are equally useful for other occasions as every week has its own losses, betrayals and triumphs to celebrate.

The book contains sixty-two songs and chants for Lent, Eastertide and Pentecost. The CD contains sixteen tracks sung by The Wild Goose Collective and Hinba.

The Kentigern Way transspaser

The Kentigern Way

A life and Lakeland pilgrimage

(Book & e-book)

Stephen G Wright

The Kentigern Way is a guide to a pilgrimage route in one of the most majestic landscapes in the UK, that of the Lake District, which is rich in beauty, nature and history.

More than this, it provides an historical backdrop to St Kentigern and the region, cutting through myths and assumptions to examine the reality of emerging 6th-century Christianity in ‘Britannia’. Kentigern is also known as St Mungo, the patron saint of Glasgow, although his influence goes far beyond that city.

Historians will enjoy the honest assessment of Kentigern’s life and some revealing asides about the reality of Celtic culture. Walkers will find an enthralling travel guide and a beautiful, manageable route. Contemplatives will be encouraged by the emphasis on listening and stillness. And I challenge anyone not to be inspired and intrigued by the thoughtfulness and love that have gone into researching and producing this unusual and compelling work.
James Newcome, Bishop of Carlisle
