EXAMPLE IMAGE ONLY - WE WILL ALWAYS SEND THE CURRENT ISSUE OF THIS PRODUCT. Written by older people for older people, these reflections are designed to bring hope, assurance and sustenance, reminding the reader of the presence and love of God. In each issue are 40 Bible reflections and prayer suggestions to use and revisit as often as is needed. In the central section, Debbie Thrower of BRF's 'The Gift of Years' ministry offers interviews and ideas to encourage and inspire.
The Editor writes...
'Welcome! We hope you enjoy this new collection of Bible reflections and find encouragement and inspiration in these pages.
Our writers are all very different, but each one of them brings fresh, intriguing insights, drawn from long years of experience and a deep knowledge of the Bible. Jennifer Rees Larcombe wanders around Capernaum watching Jesus meet his neighbours. Paul Canon Harris writes of an exuberant, overflowing, ridiculous hope forged from pain and loss. Albert Jewell writes with sensitivity and understanding of the gift, and fragility, of memory, and Ro Willoughby begins her series on welcome and acceptance with a delightful story of her then four-year-old son solemnly offering to take visitors' coats and make them tea.
In the centre pages, Debbie Thrower, Team Leader of BRF's 'The Gift of Years' ministry, meets fascinating, inspiring people like climate change activist Christine Whild, and introduces newly discovered poets like Carla McCowen, who has been writing all her adult life but has only recently released her work into the wild.
As you read these Bible reflections and spend time with God, we pray that you will know his presence, and know, as Ro Willoughby puts it so well, that 'God loves us so we love him. We come close to him, so he comes close to us.'
