The Recovery of Joy
'Recovering Joy' involves more than following our social codes and conventions. It involves walking with God at our right hand, step by step in the radiant light of his presence. It involves remembering that we have already arrived at our destination - the safety of our Father's house - even as we continue on the pilgrim road that takes us through life. It weaves imaginative story and profound reflections on a selection of psalms to trace a journey that many of us will relate to. The narrative begins in rootlessness and despair and takers a wanderer across the seato a series of islands. These are the setting for a succession of events and encounters through which emerges a progression from that initial rootlessness, through healing, to a rediscovery of the joy of feeling at the centre of God's loving purpose for our lives. Naomi Starkey is a priest in the Church of Wales currently living and working on the Llyn Peninsula.
