A Handful of Beads by Rhona Burfield

Price: £5.95

The fruit of a lifetime living and serving God in tropical Malaysia as teacher, mother, counsellor and friend, the author skilfully combines biblical texts with everyday incidents to write thought-provoking meditations.
Following in the footsteps of Jesus, ordinary situations-a broken necklace…an incubator…a hermit crab…feet…a dying patient-are all deftly used to help us reflect on the meaning of life and our relationship with God.
Through her homely and touching stories the author provides glimpses of life in Sabah, North Borneo. The meditations are illustrated delightfully by pictures and line drawings-the work of an Australian artist resident in Sabah.
Together the writing and artwork exude the feel and flavour of Borneo alongside meaningful spiritual insights.
