Twenty-five years ago an extended family made a "return to nature" move to the country to grow in faith and love. This magical book is the record of their struggles and growth. To support them in these uncertain times, they discovered a springboard to a rich family life and firm Christian beliefs in the ordinary, everyday context of the garden and the kitchen. Through anecdotes of everyday living, Seasons of Love brings a clear focus to some timeless themes. These include faith and family roots, intimacy and boundaries in relationships, growing communication skills, making the most of mealtimes, cultivating affection and tenderness, using the natural world as source of ritual and play, reaching out to a needy world, discovering the untapped wealth of opportunities in work, play, education and worship, and the importance of positive thinking, adaptability, and hope. The story is told from the point of view of the wife-mother-grandmother and spiritual mentor of the group. As she puts it, "our call opened us to the holy in the ordinary and led us to an experience of community that has touched us forever." The book achieves its vividly realistic tone by covering the gamut of the family's lived experience, from joy to sorrow, life and death, and lofty goals to such mundane details as manure for the garden. Its pages are populated by four generations--unusual in a time when the nuclear family is everything. Although the work is supported by sound theological and psychological theory, it never lingers too long in these realms, but continues to confront the daily drama of one family's risky living of the gospel.
