"Winter can be an unpredictable time, when plans sometimes go awry and we become aware that we are not separate from the rhythms of nature. As trees and animals expend less energy, so we need to make time to relax in the comfort of our homes with family and friends. Still, there is much to enjoy outdoors: the exhilaration of sledging, skiing and snowball fights; the sights, sounds and smells of the season as they take over our senses." "With the coming of Christmas, we may become aware of a mysterious part of our world that we never normally notice. Yet much that our minds cannot comprehend, our hearts can grasp: the 'long night' of Christmas Eve giving way to a light that the darkness can never put out; the love of God, coming in great simplicity, because he longs to share eternity with us." "Illustrated in full colour with over twenty fine art paintings, this book will illuminate the drab times we all experience. It will also challenge us to open our minds to new possibilities, as lengthening days hold out the promise of spring."--BOOK JACKET.
Much of the inspiration for David Adam's writing comes from his deep appreciation of the miracle of creation. This series affords him the opportunity to focus in turn on each of the seasons in order to help the reader come to a greater awareness of its significance in terms of the Christian life. In this volume, illustrated in full colour with fine art paintings, he provides prose, poems and prayers that reflect the joys and the hardships of the winter season, paying special attention to Advent, Christmas, New Year and Epiphany.
Adam ministers to thousands on the coast of Northumberland.
