Deeper into the Mess

The new book, Deeper into the Mess, written by Brendan McManus and Jim Deeds, will be launched on Sunday 19th May at 7pm in Fitzroy Presbyterian Church, University Street, Belfast, BT7 1HL.

Rev. Steve Stockman is a good friend of Brendan and Jim and Fitzroy is the perfect place to launch the book. Steve and his congregation have a gift of welcome and a love of the arts, including music and drama as well as prose and poetry.

The launch will see Steve in discussion with Brendan and Jim about their friendship and writing. There will be readings from the book and music as well; sure where would you get it?!

You are all cordially invited to along.

About the book:

Following on from the best selling book, Finding God in the Mess, Brendan McManus and and Jim Deeds have once again teamed up with Messenger Publications for the new book, Deeper into the Mess- Praying Through Tough Times.

Using a mix of storytelling, photography and personal experiences they lead the reader though meditations on the tough situations we can all find ourselves in.

Each of the main meditations in the book is divided into four sections:

  1. INTRODUCTION OR DESCRIPTION OF THE SITUATION
  2. THE WAY OF PRAYING FOR THAT SITUATION
  3. RELEVANT SCRIPTURE TEXTS
  4. A SUGGESTED RITUAL OR ACTION TO EMBODY THE PRAYER

Each section is preceded by a short ‘Conversation with God’ that models how we might relate to God directly, praying with every aspect of our lives and bringing God’s light into the darkest corners.

The book will be available from 29th April at www.messenger.ie
