For clergy and worship leaders looking for fresh inspiration for these annual celebrations, this publication has plenty to offer: probing reflections by two outstanding contemporary Christian thinkers, Rowan Williams and Martyn Percy. These offer great inspiration to preachers; complete liturgies for a Christmas Eve vigil, a Maundy Thursday footwashing and Last Supper, a Good Friday devotional service, an Easter Eve vigil, a dawn celebration of the Resurrection, a contemporary set of meditations on the Stations of the Cross and the Seven Words from the Cross, seven Good Friday addresses by WH Vanstone.
Jim Cotter writes strikingly beautiful liturgies and prayers and published many of them under his own imprint, Cairns Publications. He lives in Harlech. Martyn Percy is the Principal of Ripon College Cuddesdon. Sylvia Sands is a writer who lives on the Shankhill Road in Belfast. W H Vanstone wrote the spiritual classic Love's Endeavour Love's Expense. He died in 1999. Rowan Williams is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
