Seven Songs

The pandemic has changed our behaviour. Those who have been attentive have found themselves wondering about meaning and purpose. Some have struggled with their mental health and all of us have been faced with questions about who we are and how we belong to one another.

There are now significant opportunities to live different and better in relation to God, one another and all creation. To find our way through the crisis we would do well to draw on the deep wisdom of the best of our traditions and use what we find imaginatively to reorientate the way we live.

In this beautifully written and enchanting book Christopher Steed illuminates what we have seen and felt. With clear sight and thoughtful insight he points a way ahead. It is sometimes mystical and it is insightful practical. What on earth are we doing on earth?

Nicholas Holtam, Bishop of Salisbury
