Lucy Winkett: Our sound is our wound

This was on my wishlist for Christmas, and I was delighted when it appeared out of the wrapping paper.  It is the Archbishop of Canterbury's Lent Book for 2010, which I have been reading it with great delight - a sensitive and creative reflection on our faith.

The author is a musician, and it shows in the text.  Reading this book reminded me of how much pleasure I get from listening to music, even while knowing I could not produce such sounds myself.  The author does the same with words; the song plays through the words, but while they resonate with my soul I don't know how to make that sound myself.

If you get a chance to pick it up, do open the pages and enjoy yourself :-)
