Drawing on many examples, she shows how we can celebrate festivals with children at home and in kindergarten in a meaningful way.

<B>Christian Year, The </B><I> </I>, CAPEL, EVELYN FRANCIS
6 Christian Year, The
CAPEL, EVELYN FRANCIS
0863158978 / 9780863158971 1991 3 Paperback 
Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Easter, Ascension, Whitsun, St John's, Michaelmas. The cycle of the Earth's changing seasons figures the eternal drama of life, death and resurrection. Waking and sleeping, breathing in and breathing out, humankind daily and annually lives through the cosmic rhythm together with the Earth itself and all of nature. The influence of sun, moon and other heavenly bodies affects every living thing. Christianity reveals that it is cosmic in character through perpetuating the ancient observance of festivals throughout the year. Old traditions and customs do endure, though these are not easily comprehensible to many people nowadays. A new understanding is needed for the meaning of these festivals and a new appreciation for the spiritual rhythms in the life of the Earth. Then we shall discover for ourselves a bridge between the inner and outer life, along a path of truly Christian experience taking through each year.

This short but profound lecture is a true gem among Steiner's works. Here he surveys the meaning of Christmas in past, present, and future. Contrasting the contemporary focus on gift giving with the deeply spiritual mood connected with Advent and Christmas in earlier times, Steiner goes on to outline the history and meaning of the traditional Christmas Plays. Steiner then discusses the future development and significance of the Christmas festival, which will grow out of the new spiritual attitude brought by anthroposophy.

<B>Paths into the Book of Books </B><I> New Biblical Translations through the Festivals of the Year</I>, WEYMANN, ELSBETH, BARR, LUKE, TRANS.
11 Paths into the Book of Books New Biblical Translations through the Festivals of the Year
WEYMANN, ELSBETH, BARR, LUKE, TRANS.
1782501622 / 9781782501626 
Study of the Bible can be enlivened by understanding the historical and cultural context of the text, and delving more deeply into the original language.

In this book, Elsbeth Weymann, an expert in Greek and Hebrew, has selected biblical passages which take the reader through the festivals of the year -- from Advent and Easter to Pentecost and Michaelmas. Each passage has a fresh translation and in-depth commentary. For instance, in the story of Pentecost, she highlights the use of the unusual feminine form of the word 'spirit', which points to a feminine aspect of the Holy Spirit.

Weymann's study of specific words and grammar also shows how the living presence of the Old Testament is evident in the New Testament. This book is for anyone looking for deeper meaning in the Bible.

<B>Reappearance of Christ in the Etheric </B><I> </I>, STEINER, RUDOLF
12 Reappearance of Christ in the Etheric
STEINER, RUDOLF
0880105194 / 9780880105194 2003 Paperback 
Illustrations
The first chapter of the Acts of the Apostles describes Christ's Ascension-"and a cloud received him out of their sight." As the disciples were looking up, two angels appeared and told them that "this same Jesus, taken up from you into heaven, shall come again in the same way as you have seen him go." In 1910, Rudolf Steiner began a series of lectures announcing the advent of Christ's appearance in the sphere of the earth's etheric or life body. At first, he said, only a few will be aware of it, but in time more and more people-regardless of religious affiliation-will be strengthened, comforted and infused by the Christ's living presence. Such "Damascus experiences," bespeaking a new natural clairvoyance, Steiner argues, will become increasingly common. "The Christ will become a living comforter," he writes. "However strange it may seem, it is nevertheless true that often when people, even in considerable numbers, are sitting together not knowing what to do and waiting, they will see the etheric Christ. He will be there, will confer with them, and will cast his word in such gatherings. We are now approaching these times..." This collection contains Steiner's lectures on this theme, as well as on important related questions such as "the etherization of the blood.

13 Sweater of Rain Gesture stories
SUMMER, LAURA
5800055620902 
The gesture of a story
When we think of a story we think of a plot, characters, setting and meaning but we can also look at the gesture of a story. What, in a gesture is a story trying to say? Do we look inward? Do we turn our thinking around? Do we struggle through darkness to light?
In creating these stories I tried to see what the gesture of a season is. How is Advent different from Easter? What happens at Ascension? At Michealmas? In creating paintings and block prints to accompany these stories I have tried to bring the gesture of the season as it is revealed in the story into visual expression. You will not find illustrations here but rather visual experiences that may make you question, what gesture lives here?
Stories are meant to be told as well as read. Please feel free to tell these stories, expand on them, create variations. So the stories of the world evolve.

<B>The Encounter with Evil and its Overcoming Through Spiritual Science </B><I> </I>, PROKOFIEFF, SERGEI
14 The Encounter with Evil and its Overcoming Through Spiritual Science
PROKOFIEFF, SERGEI

In our everyday lives, we are constantly challenged by the phenomenon of evil in all its many manifestations. But how can we cope with this seemingly eternal hindrance?  


 


In the first of these three essays, Sergei Prokofieff suggests that we start by developing a knowledge of the forces of evil in order to learn how they work in human evolution. Such knowledge is, in itself, the beginning of the process of overcoming evil. In order that members of the Anthroposophical Society might go further along this path, Rudolf Steiner gave them the spiritual 'Foundation Stone of the Good'. This Foundation Stone - which consists of light, imaginative form, and the substance of love - can live in our hearts and souls as a firm foundation for esoteric work, and a creative contribution towards the overcoming of evil. Ultimately it can lead us to a conscious experience of Christ in the etheric realm of the earth. In the second and third essays, Prokofieff examines further themes relating to the etheric advent of Christ, and its connection with the Foundation Stone of the Good.
