Greetings from your Library! Most of the Library has been packed away in anticipation of our redevelopment but we still have the Library Cart stocked with a variety of useful books. We have recently purchased four new books for our Library (Cart) & hope you will find them of interest.
DISPATCHES FROM THE GLOBAL VILLAGE by Derek Evans
An invitation to sit for awhile with stories from a great peacemaker. If you accept this invitation, prepare to be informed, shocked and inspired. This powerful book will change how you imagine the world is, and how the world can be.
A PATH THROUGH LOSS byNancy Reeves Phd
Grief can come from many sources: divorce or separation, abuse, unemployment, a serious injury, chronic or terminal illness, death, childhood loss due to parental illness or substance abuse, or a life transition such as career change or retirement. This self directed journal-based guide recognizes that grief is a process. Through well written, practical information, it provides tools for nurturing the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of the self. Includes a section on children and grief.
THE LONG VIEW: An Elder Woman’s Book of Wisdom by Donna Sinclair
This book is about embracing and respecting eldership (our own or another’s), even as we search for meaning and purpose in it. Sinclair writes from her heart about her experiences, and we are drawn into her life as a mother, daughter, grandmother, sister, wife, journalist, baker, gardener, church-goer, and social activist. She offers nourishment for growth, for reflection, for inner peace and for wisdom.
THE SPIRITUALITY OF ART by Lois Huey-Heck & Jim Kalnin
Visual images are potent. When there is a disparity between what we see and what we hear, it is said that we will trust our eyes. It’s natural then that we want to express our deepest values and experiences-our spirituality itself-through art. Through stories, images and thoughts, The Spirituality of Art will guide you to a deeper enjoyment and appreciation of visual art, the spiritual journey, and the connections between the two.
Books may be borrowed any time during the week or on Sunday mornings. Weekdays the Library cart is kept in the Chapel, next door to the KUC Office. Sundays the cart is usually brought into our Fellowship Hall during refreshment time. As before, just write your name, phone number and the date on the card found in the book, leave the card in the little wooden box. A maximum of 2 or 3 weeks for the loan of books, especially new ones is preferred.
