There will be a Seminar and Library evening on Sunday 24 November 2013 between 6.30 and 9pm
‘Haphazard by Starlight’
Unlike Lent, Advent is celebrated when the year is becoming darker and colder, moving into the death and dormancy of winter. Before we can greet the coming of the light, we need to engage with some themes that are challenging and occasionally fearful.
A companion to her Lent book ‘A Heart’s Time’, this book offers a poem a day and an accessible commentary. The poets represented include Rowan Williams, Elizabeth Jennings, Edwin Muir, Philip Larkin, Jane Kenyon, Gillian Clarke, George Herbert, T. S. Eliot, Sylvia Plath, Emily Dickinson, Waldo Williams, P. J. Kavanagh, Ruth Fainlight, William Blake and many more.
Janet is a writer and trainer who has worked with Christian Aid and the Methodist Church. She is author of All Desires Known (SPCK, 2005), Bread of Tomorrow (SPCK, 2004) and The Heart’s Time (SPCK, 2011).
