"I will give you the treasures of darkness and riches hidden in secret places, that you may know that it is I, the Lord, who calls you by your name." This verse from Isaiah led priest Barbara Mosse to question our assumptions about the dark times in life. We tend to associate darkness with the absence of God, yet the season of Advent is all about the unseen workings of God in preparation for new life and new hope. This book explores the many gifts of God that can be found not only during this season, but also at those times in life when we feel engulfed in darkness. Barbara Mosse is a priest in the Diocese of Portsmouth. she is presently involved in ordination training and regularly leads retreats and quiet days on different aspects of spirituality. She has many years experience of parish ministry and she lives in Emsworth, Hampshire.
Barbara Mosse is a priest and freelance writer with varied chaplaincy experience in prison, university, community mental health and hospital. She has spent many years teaching in theological education, and is at present a tutor and lecturer in Christian Spirituality at Sarum College.
