This title follows the Church year from Advent to Advent. It shows God at work in the life of a local parish church - in a thought-provoking rather than humorous way. It includes insights into how we can grow in faith through the celebrations and commemorations of the Church year. It also includes a number of meditative poems linked to certain seasons/festivals, and interesting insights into wider church history and custom. It is suitable for those who enjoy meditative spiritual writing, especially grounded in a more liturgical tradition, those wanting to start exploring the spiritual riches found in the Christian year, and, those who enjoy Michael Mayne, Margaret Silf, and Ronald Blythe.
