The Grace-filled Wilderness: A Six-week Course for Lent [9780281080106]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

The Grace-filled Wilderness connects contemporary encounters of wilderness with the traditional themes of Lent and Jesus' journey to the cross. It concentrates on `double-edged' subjects, which bring us life as well as potentially drain life from us when we fall into them in the wrong way. How we deal with our appetites; what gives us identity; how to live with the freedom and power we hold; ways to overcome the underlying anxiety which is wrapped around so much of contemporary life and faith - all of these are explored. Each week progresses from `wilderness to grace', as the reader moves through Lent and Holy Week into the glorious hope of Easter.

Week I APPETITE: Fast, Hunger, Excess, Feast, Bread for the Word, Prayer & Action. Week 2 IDENTITY: Loneliness, Isolation, Solitude, Friendship, Community, Prayer & Action. Week 3 POWER: Ambition, Position, Vocation, Contribution, Service, Prayer & Action. Week 4 FREEDOM: Choice, Freedom, Boundary, Humility, Authenticity, Prayer & Action. Week 5 ANXIETY: Lifestyle, Money, Pressure, Failure, Trust, Prayer & Action. Week 6 DARKNESS: Weakness, Dislocation, Desolation, Death, Waiting, Prayer & Action.

AUTHOR: Magdalen Smith is Diocesan Director of Ordinands for the Diocese of Chester. She is a retreat leader and spiritual director. She has a background in the visual arts and is interested in the dialogue between faith and contemporary culture.
