Wendy Wright uses the liturgical calendar as a focus for her observations on the dynamics of incarnation, death, resurrection, and enspiriting. For her, these holy days enable us to "have the threads of our own small stories woven into the tapestry of the great stories of the faith." Wright imaginatively adds her stitches to the process with affecting personal narrative and cogent excerpts from Julian of Norwich, Catherine of Siena, and others.

Those looking for some fresh approaches to Lent, Easter, and Pentecost will not be disappointed with this resource. Wright has poignant things to say about discerning the spirits, divine mothering, forgiveness, the mystery of pain and brokenness, and the church as prophetic community.
