Making the colours sing

£6.99

Product description

From the blurb

"Making the Colours Sing is a celebration of life. Through images, prayers, poems and meditations for public worship and private devotion readers are invited to reflect on significant stages and events in the lives of individuals and communities.

Each chapter begins with a reflection inspired by an image of modern stained glass. As in a stained glass window, beauty is created through the bringing together of a variety of ideas, colours and shapes.

Michaela Youngson presents an understanding of the world in which all the pieces do not fit easily together and each piece is unique possessing its own idiosyncratic beauty. This is what makes human life a challenging, sometimes humorous and always profoundly beautiful work of art.

No part of our lives remains untouched by God. Attentiveness to the divine life in others and ourselves will help embrace the risky living that brings us closer to our Creator and allows God to make our colours sing.

Having served nine years in churches in Lancashire, Michaela Youngson is no Secretary for Pastoral Care and Spirituality in the Methodist Church. She is married to Sandy and has two children, Robert and Tamsin. One day she have time to make a window."

Excellent pages with slight edge-wear.
