My book, Tasting Life, is currently available at the special offer price of £5.99 from the publisher. To purchase, click here. It was published in 2009 and is now available in printed form, as an eBook, on two CDs and for mp3 download. In the book, now also available in full on this website, I offer daily thoughts designed to help the reader to use the weeks of Lent to rediscover what it is to really live.
You can see a sample week’s thoughts here.
The book suggests ways of reflecting on some Lenten themes – drawing closer to God, discovering more about ourselves, understanding how God might be encouraging us to move forward in our lives. There’s a reflection for each day of Lent, with a different theme for each week: Choosing, Living, Longing, Loving, Growing. Each short daily reflection has a light-hearted beginning but a deeper, more challenging ending. There then follow some ideas that you can take a few moments each day thinking about. They come under the headings: Rejoice, Reflect, Remember, Resolve. I hope the cumulative effect of these reflections will lead us into savouring life’s riches even more fully.
Rev Dr Jane Craske says of Tasting Life:
“During Lent last year, ‘Tasting Life’ gave me a deceptively simple form of Lent reflection which led into much deeper thought and prayer. Chris Morley’s reflections take us away from caricatures of Lent disciplines and lead to a rich celebration of the life God wants for us.”
The book would also make an excellent resource for a Lent group. Rev David Jenkins who recommended my Advent book (which is identical in style) to a group said they found it:
“Humorous, thought-provoking, challenging and reassuring; Chris Morley’s thoughts stimulated richly reflective discussion at a recent ecumenical group.”
There is also a CD version in which I read each day’s thought in an easily navigable format.
Alternatively you can purchase the mp3 download or the CDs (postage £3.75) from the publisher, Kevin Mayhew
