Glimpses of Glory

Prayers For The Church Year: Year C
By David Adam
Out of Stock
David Adam believes that praying regularly transforms our worship at home and in church - and transforms us too. Here, to help in our preparation for worship, he offers intercessions, forms for the peace and blessings in the Celtic tradition that link with the readings for each Sunday and great festival of the Christian year. Glimpses of Glory follows Year C of the Revised Common Lectionary, and like its companion volumes, Clouds and Glory and Traces of Glory, will benefit those who do not use a weekly lectionary and those who do. 'It is amazing how many situations are suddenly washed with a new brightness when we know that God is there and that God cares' writes David Adam. 'Intercession is a method of stopping and getting glimpses of the hidden glory of God'.
About the Author
David Adam is one of the best-loved figures in Celtic Spirituality. He also writes poetry and teaching material for churches. Living on Holy Island for thirteen years he has a special love for the saints of Iona and Lindisfarne. He now lives on land that was once given to St Cuthbert. A good few of David's poems and prayers have been turned into songs or hymns and they appear on CDs. He has broadcast on TV and radio on many occasions, talking on Celtic saints and their way of life. He is interested in Northumbrian folk tales and with a folk singer relates these to various audiences. He is a keen bird-watcher and loves walking in the hills. David wants people to learn to stop for a while and to wonder at the mystery of the whole of creation and the marvel of their own being. 'Too many people see the world as a problem to be solved rather than a mystery to be enjoyed' He has a great interest in liturgy and believes it should be deepened by teaching people to meditate on the simplest yet most profound of statements such as: The Lord is here.
