Meditations & Reflections
After the crucifixion, Joseph embarks on a quest to find out who Jesus really was, seeking out those who knew him personally. These witnesses, all mentioned in the gospels, tell their stories, each contributing a unique insight into the Nazarene. James Harpur uses both prose and poetry to create a parallel narrative to the gospels, amplifying the events they describe.
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.
Annie Heppenstall points us towards finding God in all aspects of daily life and in the natural world around us. The book's many resources for individuals and groups include body prayers, bead prayers, a covenant of salt, shrine-making, contemplations for various daily activities, creating sacred space in the home, and a leaderless Eucharist.
