Book Description

20 May 2010
In Tides and Seasons, David Adam draws from the rich store of Celtic Spirituality insights which speak to our own world today. The prayers he has written for this book echo the rhythms of creation which find their parallels in our spiritual lives. The movement of the tides - incoming, full flood, ebb tide, low tide - are linked to the cycle of the year, the seasons of life and the highs and lows of our own experience. Many strong currents are at work in our lives. Yet in the ebb and flow, nothing is lost, only changed. The sea of God's love is not diminished. Even in times of despair, we are made aware that there are other shores, eternal reaches, and that after the lowest ebb, the tide will flow again.

Do sometimes find you want to pray, but don't know what to say? The style of these prayers will take you back to the simplicity of the Christian faith and remind you that prayer isn't about how many or what kinds of words you use, but simply about resting in God. Moreover, by using the analogy of the tides, Adams make a connection to the ebbs and flows we all experience in every aspect of our lives, not just prayer. Really encouraging if you feel at 'low tide' or 'ebb tide' - these are times of richness too, if you know what to look for - and also if you are anticipating change in your life. Good if you are reflective and, like me, find nature a rich source of inspiration.

This book was given to me when I was grieving the death of my boyfriend who died at he age of 27. It got me thru some very hard times. I would recommend this beautiful collection to anyone in need of moments of peace and comfort. That is all of us. God bless David Adam!

4.0 out of 5 stars Tides and Seasons 20 Jun 2000
By Shirah Bell - Published on Amazon.com
A beautiful collection of Celtic poems and prayers. They are written in everyday language, accessible, and relevant to our times. The prayers evoke a connection with the Divine Spirit irrespective of religious affiliation. I especially enjoyed selecting a particular one and meditating on it. Very rich!
