In her moving spiritual memoir, Mary DeMuth traces the winding path of “thin places” in her life—places where she experienced longing and healing more intensely than before. As DeMuth writes, “Thin places are snatches of holy ground, tucked into the corners of our world, where we might just catch a glimpse of eternity. They are aha moments, beautiful realizations, when the Son of God bursts through the hazy fog of our monotony and shines on us afresh.”From losing her earthly father to discovering a heavenly Father who never leaves, from singing Olivia Newton-John songs to the sky to worshiping God under a French sun, from surviving abuse as a latchkey kid to experiencing the joy of mothering three children, DeMuth’s story calls readers to a deeper understanding of their own story. With unusual spiritual wisdom, she looks for God in the past so that she might experience him more profoundly in the present. Her powerful words invite readers to know God in a new way—a God ready to break through any ordinary day or extraordinary pain and offer a glimpse of eternity.

Ever felt a "been-there-before" presence at a place you visited... for the first time?

Thin Places is an eloquent meditation on what it means to move between cultures and how one might finally come home, a particular paradox in a culture that lacks deep ties to the natural world. During the 1990s, Ann Armbrecht, an American anthropologist, made several trips to northeastern Nepal to research how the Yamphu Rai acquired, farmed, and held onto their land; how they perceived their area's recent designation as a national park and conservation area; and whether-as she believed-they held a wisdom about living on the earth that the industrialized West had forgotten. What Armbrecht found instead were men and women who shared her restlessness, people also driven by the feeling that there must be more to life than they could find in their village. Charting Armbrecht's travels in the mountains of Nepal and in the United States, as well as her disintegrating marriage back home, Thin Places is ultimately an exploration not of the sacred far-off but of the sacredness of places that are between?between the internal and external landscape, the self and others, and the self and the land. She finds that home is not a place where we arrive but a way of being in place, wherever that place may be.

In Irish Celtic lore, “thin places” are those locales where the veil between this world and the otherworld is porous, where there is mystery in the landscape. The earth takes on the hue of the sacred among peoples whose connection to place has remained unbroken through the ages. What happens, then, when a Celtic view of nature is brought home to a North American landscape in which many inhabitants’ ancestral connections to place are surface-thin? In a quest to find a deeper spiritual landscape in his own home, Kevin Koch applies eight principles of a Celtic spiritual view of nature to places in Ireland and to the American Midwest’s rugged Driftless Area, an unglaciated region of river bluffs, rock outcrops, and steeply wooded hills. The Thin Places brings onsite mountaineering guides, spiritual leaders, geologists, and archaeologists alongside scholars in the fields of Celtic studies, religion, and conservation. But the text never strays far from story, from a trek through the Wicklow Mountains and the bogs of Western Ireland or among ancient Native American burial mounds and abandoned nineteenth-century lead mines in the bluffs above the Mississippi River.

While praying for his community on the Island of Iona, the Celtic monk St. Columba described his experience as a thin place- a location where heaven and earth seemed only thinly separated.In the same way, God’s kingdom is being realized here on earth with stories of restoration and redemption. Our God moved into the neighborhood, seeking to invite us into his story of reconciliation, and commission us to missionally engage our neighborhoods with the good news of the kingdom.Joining the concepts of monasticism and mission, author Jon Huckins will walk you through six postures of missional formation: listening, submerging, inviting, contending, imagining, and entrusting. As you begin to employ these postures, become apprentices of Jesus who are committed to living in and experiencing the thin places.Through Thin Places, create a fertile soil to commune with God, live in deep community with others, and extend the good news of the kingdom in your local contexts.

Come and visit a world of subtle horror and dark fantasy by master of creeping horror Tom Fletcher; a world in which insidious forces permeate the folds of reality, twisting it one strand at a time. This omnibus includes the novels The Leaping, The Thing on the Shore and The Ravenglass Eye, with a bonus chapter from Tom's new fantasy series, The Factory Trilogy, included. THE LEAPING Jack finished university three years ago, but he's still stuck in a dead-end job in a sinister call-centre in Manchester. When the beautiful(and rich) Jennifer comes into his life, he thinks he has finally found his ticket out of there. Trouble is that his boss is interested in Jennifer aswell, and there's something strangely bestial about him . . . So when Jennifer buys Fell House, a mysterious old mansion in remote Cumbria, a house party on a legendary scale seems like the perfect escape. But as the party spins out of control on a seemingly neverending night, they must face up to the terrifying possibility that not all their guests may be human - and some of them want to feed. THE THING ON THE SHORE When Artemis Black is assigned to manage a call centre on behalfof a mysterious multinational corporation called Interext, he decides toimplement a unique personal project, installing cutting-edge AI technology inthe centre. But this 'technology' has other effects. Soon, one of Artemis' employees, Arthur, becomes aware of anintangible landscape inside the labyrinthine systems of the call-centre - alandscape in which he can feel an otherworldly consciousness stirring . . . THE RAVENGLASS EYE Edie is a barmaid at The Tup in the small town of Ravenglass. So far, so normal. But when she is caught in a freak earthquake she subsequently develops 'The Eye' - a power that allows her glimpses of other worlds and strange events. At first Edie passes her visions off as nightmares, but when a person is found murdered, she realises that she has seen this death before, and that her visions are not imaginary, but real. Mankind had better hope that Edie finds a solution to the murders soon, because it's more than just the influence of The Eye that has entered the world. A power far more malevolent has been released, and that power is hungry for death.

At a very special lecture some years ago, the concept of “thin places” was introduced to me. Thin poems describe people, places or experiences where boundaries between the spirit world and the secular or material world are more transparent. This transparency, or “thinness”, enables a greater perception of spiritual matters, an encounter with God, a more spiritual approach to life. Thin places is a term that was given to sacred space, originally associated with Celtic Christians in the late Fifth Century. This book is organized into two thematic areas: Thin Places and Thin Experiences. Thin places can be found through travel, work, neighborhoods, nature and families. Thin experiences can be found through health, dreams, memories, spirituality and people. The title of the book comes from a self-label that evolved during a journey with cancer. The Author identifies himself with being a gentle warrior, one who strives for peace, harmony and balance. He hopes that readers will find these poems inspiring, comforting and useful.

Rory Stewart's moving account of his walk across Afghanistan in January 2002 was immediately hailed as a classic. Caught between hostile nations, warring factions and competing ideologies, at the time Afghanistan was in turmoil following the US invasion. Travelling entirely on foot and following the inaccessible mountainous route once taken by the Mogul Emperor, Babur the Great, Stewart was nearly defeated by the extreme, hostile conditions. Only with the help of an unexpected companion and the generosity of the people he met on the way did he survive to report back with unique insight on a region closed to the world by twenty-four years of war. Winner of the Royal Society of Literature Ondaatje Award and the Spirit of Scotland Award and shortlisted for the Guardian First Book Award, the John Llewellyn Rhys Memorial Prize and the Scottish Book of the Year Prize.
