Meg Hartfield's poems flow from her deep faith and a longing for a peaceful world. The poems in the first half of the book - Light of the World - are a retelling of the story of Jesus' life. Starting with the Word and the nativity, then onwards to the Cross, Resurrection and Pent...ecost, the poems draw us into the mystery of God among us. Taken together they form a new gospel, a new sharing of the good news, for readers today. Meg takes us inside the heads and hearts of the Bible characters and we find that they were just like us: brave and afraid, striving to live well but often missing the point, capable of loving and of hating, of violence and of gentleness. She brings alive these dramatic stories that point us to the shining light of God's love for us, made human in Jesus. Thirteen poems focus on Peace. Ploughshares - implements for cutting furrows; Swords - implements for cutting people... begins one poem. They explore the big picture of war and international conflict, and the small, everyday things we can do to create a peaceful community and world. This collection also includes a section of Tributes to family members and other people, poems about nature and it is rounded out by a set of happy haiku. Use these poems in reflective worship services, for group devotions and for personal inspiration.
