Through the famous verses of Ecclesiastes, Joan Chittister reflects on timeless themes: the purpose and value of human life, the balance of joy and sorrow, work and rest, love and loss. In meditating on the contrasting seasons of our lives, she shows how human fulfillment and true happiness come, not from getting and having more and more, but from knowing and valuing what we have. Friendship and laughter, patience and sorrow, humility and compassion, from birth through death all these are God's gifts to us, the precious moments of life itself.

The fruit of her determined prayer for a way to give her spirit time to catch up, this pithy reflection on the qualities of time will introduce highly respected biblical scholar, professor, pastor, widow, friend, and author Bonnie Thurston to a wider audience - everyone who is time-pressed and deadline pressured. The news is good: Time is the creation of a generous God who always provides not only the bare essentials, but usually a feast. As the writer of Ecclesiastes mused: For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven. It is with her trust in this abundance that Thurston explores the mystery of time and the rediscovery of the Judeo-Christian understanding of time as God's sacred and bountiful gift. She looks at time from both a historical and a theological perspective; she studies seasons as measured by the liturgical cycle, the monastic day, the jubilee year, and the Sabbath; and she ponders the meaning of time participles - familiar phrases such as finding time, making time, spending time, and marking time. With her encouragement, the reader will discover that there is enough time - if we redeem the time by reclaiming the Sabbath, the time built into the rhythm of creation by God for rest and re-creation. 'To Everything a Season' offers reflection exercises to help us understand both how we think about and how we use time, as well as suggestions for ways of making Sabbath in the midst of our own crowded lives. The result is an invitation and a recipe for living in the present moment, in God's eternal Now.

One June night, on a dark country road, two worlds-one of privilege and wealth, one modest and Plain-collide, and tragedy forces two families together, ultimately leading both to question the lives they lead. Taylor Loden, heir-apparent to her father's media empire, has never examined her breakneck work pace or her empty life until her world becomes entwined with the Old Order Amish Yoder family of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Taylor has zero desire to muck a barn or strip tobacco, yet feels compelled, for reasons she's not prone to analyze, to temporarily trade her technology-fueled business life in Philadelphia for country life without electricity on the Yoder farm. While she struggles to adapt to Amish life, she bonds with the family, especially with two of the Yoder siblings: Jacob and Becca. Jacob, the eldest son, refuses to baptize and join the church, and according to his frustrated father, lacks direction. He not only faces a grave physical challenge resulting from his actions that June night, but also harbors a secret that threatens to upend his family and community. Becca is 16, entering her rumspringa, and free to explore the modern world. When Taylor returns to her Philadelphia penthouse, Becca accompanies her for the summer and for the first time is exposed to city life-its museums, music, restaurants, fashion, even religious faiths different from her own. Taylor mentors Becca's city fling and helps Jacob conceal his secret, actions that jeopardize her relationship with the Yoder family and her father. Ultimately, all three must answer for themselves: Are we more than what we do for a living or where we're born? And if so, what price, if any, is too steep to walk away from family expectations? A clash of cultures and family secrets change two families' lives forever.
