Catching Contentment (Liz Carter)
If anyone has a right to feel angry with life, then the author is a strong candidate. Having battled with lung disease from a young age, suffered at the hands of bullies, and, reluctantly, given up her much-loved teaching job, she has plenty to complain about. But she has made a point of exploring contentment. She has drawn particularly on Paul's letter to the Philippians. 'Contentment is something we can all catch hold of,' she believes, 'whatever circumstances we find ourselves in.' This is a message which we need to hear, whether we are lifelong sufferers, like the author, or facing deprivation or injustice of another sort. Or we may simply have fallen into bad habits. We cannot fail to be uplifted, and hopefully transformed, by the author's discoveries as we learn to buck trends within society and the church
How To Be Holy Satisfied
Ever Present (Austen Hardwick)
A great book for Christians and runners A real best-foot-forward story of overcoming a stroke and encountering God Austen Hardwick's story will encourage your faith and your feet Spiritual wisdom from a stroke survivor who discovered a deeper connection with God through running. Austen Hardwick suffered three strokes in his forties. Running had always been part of his life, but now he was running to get his brain functioning again. As he started to regain fitness he realised that running created the space to process what had happened to him, and that it gave him space to be with God. Weaving together personal testimony and biblical teaching, Austen shows how running is a metaphor for the Christian life, and how we can learn to live life in all its fullness. Through suffering and trials, we have an ever present God who wants to know us and love us. In a culture when we are urged to do more exercise, this is a timely reminder that running can actually be both good for the heart and the soul
