Just in time for Advent: “Something new” republished

Philip Garside (PGPL) has republished “Something new to say: words of spirit, faith and celebration for Advent and Christmas” in an expanded 2nd edition. Available in print and as an e-book, from all the usual booksellers, as well as direct from PGPL.

This collection celebrates a festive season where pohutukawa and rata are in bloom, friends gather around barbecues or picnic at the beach on Christmas Day, and many people travel to catch up with family or enjoy school holidays.

Reviewer’s comment
“Bronwyn’s words are more powerful and real than a thousand theological treatises on incarnation.” Rev Dr Margaret Mayman

The title comes from a Christmas Day reflection which Bronwyn led in 2010:

“Every year, in manses and studies and at the kitchen table, preachers and worship leaders approach Advent with a mixture of joy and trepidation. Joy, because Christmas is the penultimate Christian festival—each week the excitement builds, every week another candle is lit, every year is pregnant with possibilities—but trepidation, because December 25 after December 25, the person leading the service tries to find something new to say!”


“Something new to say” for Advent & Xmas being re-released soon

I’m thrilled that a revised edition of “Something new to say”, with some new resources included, is being published in time for Advent 2022. It’s currently with Philip Garside (https://pgpl.co.nz/).

Something new” is the second book in my Spirit and Faith series, following “You who delight me” which you can now buy direct from me via the order and pay online page. (It was published in 2012 by Steele Roberts Aotearoa).

Two more books are in preparation.

Spirit through the Seasons

The third book in my Words of Spirit and Faith series is tentatively called Spirit through the Seasons and will include liturgy resources for both the calendar and liturgical seasons.

I plan to publish it as an ebook first, then find and fund local printing options.
