The art of kintsugi ('repairing with gold') not only restores
cracked objects but makes them even more beautiful than before.

Alone on an 8-day retreat in the Egyptian desert, Justine Allain Chapman experienced first-hand the physical, spiritual and mental struggle many have endured before her. Our own desert experience may involve attending to challenges that come upon us suddenly - such as an illness or bereavement - or to difficult relationships or patterns of thinking that have long been draining us of life and joy.

A Lenten pilgrimage is testing. We have to search within ourselves for answers which lie hidden, to draw on each other's strengths, to reflect deeply and to trust that we will be enabled to integrate our many experiences. But there is a 'bright flame before us, a guiding star above'. And the God, who always calls us to love beyond ourselves, offers tender healing for our brokenness, longing that we may be consoled and renewed.

This vividly written book includes wide ranging prayers and scripture readings, along with guides to using the material with groups and in preaching and worship.

'Brings us to Easter with both a deeper sense of self and a deeper engagement with God.'
The Revd Dr Roger L Walton, President of the Methodist Conference 2016

Praise for Resilient Pastors:
'Pragmatic and compassionate . . . I wish I had read this book years ago.' The Rt Revd Alan Wilson, Church Times
