Book Description

1 Mar 2007
Practical & liturgical resources for Lent and Holy Week The hunger for modern, relevant resources for the Christian seasons and celebrations is deep. Here is a book that will help to fill this need. Suitable for group worship or personal reflection, and with material for Shrove Tuesday, Ash Wednesday, Mothering Sunday, Palm Sunday and Holy Week, it is a collection to accompany readers through Lent and Easter for many years. Eggs and Ashes includes a Lent discipline for those who care about the environment, liturgies, responses, prayers, poems, reflections, meditations, stories, stations of the cross, sermons, monologues and songs, with some all-age resources written by Iona Community members, associates, friends and others. Ruth Burgess is the author of A Book of Blessings and Friends and Enemies, both published by Wild Goose Publications. Chris Polhill is a frequent contributor to Wild Goose books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eggs and Ashes 26 May 2009
By Sue
This book was a good resource for small groupwork as well as sunday service preparation. It provided inspiration for good examples, ideas for leading meditation and much more. As with other books by this author, I would highly recommend her material to anyone preparing to lead in a Christian setting, her ideas are inspirational and usually very thought provoking if used in an appropriate setting.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent resource for worship 18 Mar 2011
This book is a part of a series, if you are a person responsible for planning Christian worship you should invest in the entire series. The resources are creative and yet simple enough for most congregations to enjoy. They will make people think without leaving them wondering "what is that about." I have put each book to use immediately as it has arrived. I finally have the entire set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb set of resources for church use 5 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an Iona Community book of resources for use in worship during Lent and Easter. The content is very varied - poetry, mini-drama, songs, short passages of responsorial prayer, and so on - and can be used very flexibly. All the books in this series are excellent.
