52 Original Wisdom Stories
Short Lively Pieces for the Christian Year
Positive and life-affirming stories for church leaders
These 52 loosely related fictional stories about the large themes of life, nature, and faith follow the liturgical year and are an ideal resource for public worship.
Sid and Rosie are an older married couple with several children and grandchildren. Through a series of short, engaging narratives, we learn about their faith, their feelings for one another, their hopes and dreams, and their perception of how God speaks to them through the events of their lives.
Each story stands on its own; their sequence follows the rhythm of the church's year from Advent through Christmas, Easter, Pentecost, and Harvest Thanksgiving. With an open tone of wonder and reflection, author Penelope Wilcock explores the ordinary and extraordinary topics of daily life: falling in love, marriage, birth, education, illness, farming, adversity, hospitality, homemaking, and work.
This beautiful large-format paperback is suitable for personal reflection or as a refreshing resource for church and small group discussions. - See more at: http://www.kregel.com/ministry/52-original-wisdom-stories/#sthash.cqKzv5KP.dpuf
My review ;
"52 Original Words of Wisdom" is a collection of nice short little stories about an older couple named Rosie and Sid. We learn through each holiday a different thing about them and what they feel about different things in their lives. Penelope Wilcock, the author has given us a lot to think about and how it relates to others that we may know. At the end of each story there are questions for the reader or to share with others. I really liked these stories. I give this book a 4/5. I was given this book for a review and all opinions are mine.
