“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.


Liturgy in a time of isolation

Are you missing your faith community?

Do you wish you could find some progressive, inclusive, contemporary liturgy while you can’t get to your regular church service?

This time of government or self-imposed isolation is ideal for polishing off those projects we’ve had in mind for a while: stash-busting for crafters, jigsaw-making for puzzlers, housework for procrastinators…

As we’re in the season of Lent, coming up to Easter, I’ve recorded myself reading some Easter-themed liturgy resources: prayers, poems, reflections, hymn lyrics. I’m not a professional video maker or worship leader, and they’re not the smoothest audio visuals in the YouTuberverse, but I hope you’ll enjoy and be inspired by them.

Here’s a link to my Easter – Passiontide – Liturgy playlist on YouTube.

You might even decide to buy one of my books, so you can read the resources in your own time. Blessings, and peace be with you in this strange Passiontide, as we face a suddenly ambivalent future.

Here are links to other progressive, inclusive, online resources:
