The Prince Of Peace In A World Of Wars by David Kerrigan

God’s promise in Jesus is to bring peace, both with God and with others. But have we really understood what this peace looks like, especially in a world of wars and suffering? The coming of Jesus at Christmas is central to the divine plan to bring peace to the world. Through reflection on Scripture and mission stories, David locates God at the centre of our mission and encourages us to restore the peace, joy and hope that comes from Jesus.

Jenny the Shy Angel by Anne Booth

“I love you God” Jenny says “I want to praise you too, but when there’s lots of noise about I don’t know what to do”. When the angels go to see the newborn king, Jenny stays behind to be quiet, which is when she learns about love, nature and that shyness doesn’t matter because quiet moment with God are special. Ages 4 – 6.

Joseph and the Three Gifts by Brian Sibley

We are all familiar with Joseph from the Christmas Story, but yet he is someone we know very little about. And rarely given much thought to. This beautiful fable, imagined as though told by the archangel Gabriel, helps us understand who Joseph was and how he might have felt about his part in the Greatest Story Ever Told. Follow Joseph from Bethlehem, hiding in Egypt and returning to his carpentry in Nazareth as Jesus grows from boy to man to Messiah. A wonderful story for older children and adults for Advent and Lent.
