High Days and Holy Days: Voices of the Christian West
by Arthur Hawes
This book contains 51 sermons on High Days and Holy Days in the Christian calendar.
Though arising from the author’s own religious experience, many of the themes are universal and speak to people of all religious faiths and none and to all cultures.
It is hoped they will appeal to the many people who are housebound and unable to attend their place of worship. It is hoped too that it will be welcomed by the tens of thousands of people who faithfully and doggedly sit, often on hard pews, listening to sermons every week. They are to be counted among the blessed. Students, ordinands and some Faith Leaders may also enjoy this collection.
“Sermons are the means of expressing and exploring relationship, between God and His people, between the preacher and the congregation, between hearts that hope and selves that struggle. I was privileged to be a colleague of Arthur Hawes in the diocese of Lincoln. He is a person with a rare gift for relationship—through his own spirituality, his skills as a teacher and his deep love for people. These sermons invite readers to taste this gift and to be deepened in relationship with God, with others and with themselves. As the scripture exhorts us, we should read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest.” – Alastair Redfern (Bishop of Derby)
