Windows into the Light

A Lenten Journey of Stories and Art

Michael Sullivan

Oct/2008, 133 Pages, Paperback, 6 x 9

ISBN-13: 9780819223227



Focuses on the journey from darkness to light inherent in Lent.

By using an easily accessible liturgical format, the book provides a pathway for those who walk from Ash Wednesday to the empty tomb of Easter. Chapters begin with a prayer or poetic excerpt, followed by scripture for the day or week. A narrative then expands on the themes introduced by the prayer and scripture. Exercises following the narratives are simple—mostly collage exercises using differing techniques—and are accessible to a wide audience. Soul Questions guide the spiritual exercise following the narrative, and Thoughts for the Journey, complete each chapter with suggestions for further reflection.

Michael Sullivan is the director at Kanuga, the Episcopal conference center in North Carolina. An Episcopal priest and former attorney, he is a frequent speaker and workshop leader. He lives in Lynchburg, Virginia.

"People will read these stories and remember them for a long time. A useful book for individuals and small groups, by a consummate storyteller and teacher.”—Barbara Cawthorne Crafton, author of Mary and Her Miracle, The Sewing Room, and more

“Michael Sullivan provides deep insight through Windows into the Light. He invites us on a journey of opening our souls to fresh air and sunlight and, like any great guide, he encourages us to “let the bad spirits go and usher in God’s redeeming love through light.” In particular, Michael skillfully uses the Lenten season of the Christian year to usher in fresh air and sunlight so that little by little—as Lent literally means slow movement—we face directly into all the unresolved areas of our lives. By doing so, this book bends us toward resurrection.”—Michael Battle, author of Practicing Reconciliation in a Violent World
