Not On Our Shelves—Ships in 1-5 Days

This is a classic book from the unique insight and spiritual wisdom of Evelyn Capel.

She covers the main festivals and events in the Christian Year: Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Easter, Ascension, Whitsun, St John's tide, and Michaelmas, always linking them back to the Gospels and Christ.

She considers the cycles of our world: the changing seasons; life, death and resurrection; waking and sleeping; breathing in and breathing out.

Throughout, Capel never loses sight of the over-arching cosmic themes which influence the spiritual rhythms of the Earth and human beings.

Evelyn Capel (1911-2000) was born at Stow-on-the-Wold in the Cotswold Hills in England. She studied history at Somerville College, Oxford, and then studied at the seminar of The Christian Community in Stuttgart. In 1939, she became the first English woman priest ordained within it to celebrate the sacraments.
