What a lovely way to keep alive a child's natural sense of wonder! This Amazing World is a sparkling collection of poems about anything and everything around us -- the birds and the animals, the plants and the trees, the land and the sea and the sky. Short, but deeply in touch with life, the poems mark the movement of the sun from daybreak to darkness -- "The Great Unseen." They chart the unfolding of the seasons. They lift and swing -- "Create a Space"; "A Prayer for Song Birds." Some of the poems stand sturdy and stalwart -- "Choice of Timbers"; "There Grows a Tree." Some notice "Weeds"; some "Noise and Stillness." They introduce "Gruffalo the Buffalo" and the color "Pink." They observe "The Silver Road" that stretches out from the moon. God is everywhere present, instigating the beauty and delight that run through all these poems. They are the work of writers who are well-known and lesser known; from the past and from today. Ruth River's pen-and-ink drawings, filled with splashes of color, add vibrancy to these full-of-life poems. This Amazing World is a perfect gift for everyone -- especially anyone 6-12 years -- who loves exploring.
In a remote canyon in northern New Mexico the early morning stillness is broken by voices chanting praises to the Lord. And thus begins the daily cycle in the Godcentered life and search of the Benedictine monks at the Monastery of Christ in the Desert.Seeking God is a monastic tapestry. The daily life of the monks is interwoven with the seasonal changes and celebrations and the candid words of the monks as they speak of their life their hopes and doubts their hardships fears and joys their prayer. Weaving this tapestry together are the hauntingly beautiful chants songs of praise and reverence that echo through the darkness before dawn throughout the day through the solemnity of Vespers in the evening and Compline at night. The majestic beauty of the environment captured in every season reflects a peace and tranquility that becomes an integral part of this monastic tapestry. The high red rock walls of the canyon where eagles fly cradle the valley whose stillness is broken only by the flowing waters of the Chama River and the winds that occasionally funnel through. Seeking God presents the ongoing process of the monastic way through the words and activities of these Benedictine monks as they move through the day and through the seasons in their search for God through prayer work study and song.
