  • For some time Nick Fawcett has been exploring poetry as a medium of prayer, using its particular strengths to great effect: the power of rhyme and rhythm to resonate deep within, sticking in the mind and offering a unique source of inspiration, comfort, challenge or guidance.

    Ideal for both private and public devotion, these poetic prayers are grouped under five headings , praise and worship, confession and forgiveness, thanksgiving, petition (prayers for ourselves) and intercession (prayers for others).

    Many everyday emotions are explored , joy, sorrow, hope, fear, faith, doubt , together with wider issues such as bereavement, the environment, injustice and exploitation. Above all, the emphasis is on responding to God, through word and deed, and asking his help to know, love and serve him better.

    What difference does being a Christian make to your life and what difference should it make?In Spot the Difference, Nick Fawcett considers five ways in which commitment should manifest itself: in a quality of love, a spontaneity of witness, a disposition of joy, a generosity of spirit and a vibrant inner faith.The five sessions in this group study course for Lent are: • A love that shows
    • An allegiance that shows
    • A joy that shows
    • A concern that shows
    • A faith that showsEach session contains: Setting the scene, Exploring the Scriptures, Activities, Enlarging the picture, and Food for thought.ABOUT THE AUTHORDespite wrestling with a speech impediment throughout his formative years, Nick Fawcett responded to the call to ministry, studying at Bristol and Oxford universities before spending thirteen happy years in the Baptist ministry, first in Leigh, Lancashire and then in Cheltenham, after which he went on to serve for three years as a chaplain with the national charity Toc H.While few would have dreamt he had ever struggled with speech, for Nick it was still an issue beneath the surface, prompting him eventually to explore a new form of ministry: that of the written word. He has been writing now for six years, during which time he has published numerous books reaching an audience many hundred time greater than was possible while in the pastoral ministry; this, in his own words, testimony to the way God so often moves in mysterious ways.Alongside his writing, Nick works for a variety of publishers as a freelance editor, proofreader and indexer. He lives in Wellington, Somerset, with his wife Deborah and two children, Samuel aged eleven and Kate aged five.
