Meditations & Reflections
A book of reflections, meditations and prayers for Advent and Christmas, Lent, Holy Week and Easter, Ascension and Pentecost arising out of conversations about faith, love, doubt and hope.
A new, smaller-format edition of Ewan Mathers' beautiful photographs depicting in detail the carvings of the restored cloisters of Iona Abbey, with text reflecting on the meaning of each design and information about the flora and fauna of the Isle of Iona and beyond, which most of the carvings represent. This use of symbols from the natural world reflects the close links of the early Celtic Christians with the land around them.
Advent & Christmas
Poetry, liturgy and narrative resources on beloved Advent and Christmas themes, questioning the cosy and sentimental view of the festive season and taking seriously the idea that God in Christ is born as a vulnerable outsider who transforms the world in radical ways.
A year's worth of stories and reflections to encourage us to 'look well' to the insights and inspiration we might need to live each of the 365 days as best we can, with a more hopeful vision for tomorrow.
Powerful and moving readings, stories and poems for Easter. Rachel Mann writes with the voices of the characters involved in the biblical accounts of passion and resurrection, unafraid to explore the darkest aspects evoked by these events.
Unfortunately a page was omitted and then appears in the wrong place when Welcoming Each Wonder by Tom Gordon was printed for the first time, for which we offer many apologies. To help rectify this, the complete chapter is available as a free download. Just put it in your basket and check out as usual. You will not be charged. The problem was corrected for later print runs, so this corrected chapter should not be necessary if you have only just purchased the book.
The third in the series of books of modern parables after A Blessing to Follow and Welcoming Each Wonder. By drawing us into the lives of ordinary people Tom Gordon offers insights into issues of universal relevance in an immediate, contemporary and imaginative way. Relates to lectionary cycle B.
A collection of original and contemporary parables - the first of a series of three - using the framework of the Christian Year to offer a story for every week, and a few more besides.
Presents a method of using remembered (oral, not written) versions of the Bible with people of all ages and abilities, in which telling and interpreting the stories in light of the participants' own lives become inextricably linked.
Advent & Christmas
Short, structured readings for each day of Advent, not advocating a 'cosy' view of Christmas but rather urging us to use this season to address some of the most important issues of our time.
