5.0 out of 5 stars One of the great books, 13 May 2014

A compelling account of one man's struggle with life and faith. Utterly honest and self-perceptive. The heights and depths recorded lead me back to read it again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars The world through new eyes, 14 Jan 2014
This review is from: One Minute Meditation (Paperback)
I was looking for something like this because I've just moved house and every day seems crowded with letters that must be written and boxes that must be unpacked even though I don't know where to put the things inside them. 'One minute meditations' brought a promise that even in the chaos of moving, I can still make time for God - that a minute can be enough to pause and reflect and let light into the dark muddle. I restricted myself to reading just the introduction and the first few meditations to get the 'flavour' but that was enough to convince me that this is going to be a valued companion on the journey. I have made a promise that I will take at least one minute every day to let God into the confusion and turmoil.
The book offers thought -provoking approaches to familiar settings which have already helped me to calm down and restored my belief that the troubles of each day can be overcome which gives me confidence to look forward to what lies ahead instead of dreading tomorrow.
Simon Parke lives in the everyday world we all share but has that vital ability to look beyond it to the vitality and mystery and beauty of the greater world which lies beyond the mundane if we take the time - one minute - to recognise it.

The bricks are very well made and the design is excellent. It kept my granddaughters captivated and most of the adults watching them wanted to have a go too.

Carried me back to Orkney echoing some of the sadness in the beauty of those islands. Rhythmically satisfying and timing impeccable.
