Firstly I want to say a belated huge thank you to all those who bought a copy of Voices Through Advent and Christmas. I hope that you all enjoyed it and it helped you into Advent and Christmas.
A second print had to be done, and indeed I have no copies left of that (though Moorleys do if you want to get in early for next year!)
As a follow up to that Voices Through Holy Week and Easter is currently at the printers.
The Easter story is familiar to us. We travel it year after year. Voices Through Holy Week and Easter seeks to breathe new life through the characters of that journey as they work through what is happening, what it means for them – and what it might mean for us each day.
The readings follow the account of Holy Week and beyond from all four gospels.
They are questions, hopes and fears – the reactions of the characters involved. Brave followers of Jesus, who in this week didn’t always feel brave, but in the bravery and integrity of Jesus found his promises more than fulfilled.
The question for us through all the story is ‘What about me?’, where the readings culminate.
The readings can be used in worship services to bring a different accent to the voices, or for personal reflection as we journey through Holy Week to Easter and resurrection.
The books will be priced £4.50 and will be available as soon as they arrive from the printers.
To order please contact me on email@example.com or available from Moorleys
As the year turns over,
I find myself acutely aware
of life and death,
of despair and hope,
of joy and sorrow,
of pain and promise,
of what has been
and what is to come
“I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year: “Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.”
And he replied:
“Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the Hand of God. That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way.”
So I went forth, and finding the Hand of God, trod gladly into the night. And He led me towards the hills and the breaking of day in the lone East.”
