Follow the liturgical year from Advent through Easter with Ann Weems' collection of poetry which reminds readers of the importance of serious discipleship. Her reminder that the institutional church with its many distractions is at its heart all about Jesus is one worth remembering during this holy season. Paperback.
Weems's lyrical poetry is a reminder of the importance of true discipleship. She challenges Christians to look past the ongoing distractions of the "busy work" of church meetings and socials, new programs and technology, and inevitable conflict, while reminding readers in her singularly expressive voice that the "institution" of the church is, at heart, quite simply all about Jesus. This collection of poems, written to be used in worship, in personal devotions, and in discussion groups, is organized to follow the liturgical year from Advent through Easter.
Kneeling in Bethlehem
In a style that is contemporary, reverent, and faith-filled, the poet offers a collection of meaningful poems reflecting on the Christmas season.
Ann Weems is a Presbyterian elder, a lecturer, and a popular poet. She is the author of Family Faith Stories, Reaching for Rainbows, Searching for Shalom, Kneeling in Bethlehem, Kneeling in Jerusalem, Psalms of Lament, and Putting the Amazing Back in Grace, all available from WJK.
"Ann Weems's words are beautiful but they are also powerful, poignant, and profound. This is poetry at its highest calling." Kathleen Long Bostrom, author of Making Space for the Spirit and coauthor of 99 Things to Do between Here and Heaven.
