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.
New prayers, in the 'Celtic' tradition, for the whole of life - from chopping carrots or doing the laundry to healing our deeply wounded world.

It includes a section on how to create your own labyrinth and lead your own labyrinth walk.
This spiral-bound journal, with quotes to inspire your own reflections, is ideal for recording your thoughts, prayers and memories, whether used on a trip to Iona, at home or on your travels.
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
Explores how people of faith and goodwill might mark the midwinter season and the Christmas festival with integrity and simplicity. How can we include others and celebrate difference without putting us all under intolerable strain, or perpetuating false and oppressive myths of the ideal family life? Reflections on the origins, diverse meanings and customs associated with Christmas, personal stories, and liturgical and ritual resources that can be adapted and used in the home, in group gatherings and in church settings.
A fine collection of readings, poems, theology and liturgy to help us on our unfinished journey to ecological awareness. 'Give me sustainability, but not yet,' could be our 21st-century version of St Augustine's famous 'continence' prayer. We need to start rethinking our beliefs as if the rest of nature mattered, linking liberation theology with environmental issues, for as the world becomes more uninhabitable, it is the poorest who suffer first and longest. But our relationship with non-human nature is more than just material and economic. We need to start loving nature for its own sake, not just for what we can get out of it, physically, emotionally or spiritually.
