Different Seasons


By Dale Turner

Twelve Months of Wisdom & Inspiration

Seattle Times columnist Dale Turner shares some of his most enlightening and beloved articles in Different Seasons, the product of his fifteen years as a journalist and his more than fifty as Congregational minister.

From the start of every year, holidays, and celebrations mark the passage of time. Dr. Turner writes lovingly about these, but also about the times in between—the glory, grief, love, courage, compassion, and joy found in everyday living. Dr. Turner celebrates the search for meaning in life, while concentrating on the struggles of real people. He writes, “We work ourselves into high blood pressure by piling up mountains of largely meaningless odds and ends, like so many pack rats, giving all too little thought to what we, ourselves, would most like to get out of life.”

The good news is that life offers so much that is wonderful for those who are willing to look for it, every day, week, and month of the year.

From boyhood in West Virginia and Ohio to education at Yale Divinity School, from being pastor in Michigan, Kansas, and Washington to ministering to the sick in Japan and preaching in Great Britain, Dr. Turner has led a full and fascinating life, one he shares in this month-by-month journey through the year.

Different Seasons is a timeless resource, full of inspiring stories, and thought-provoking ideas and observations, that will be shared by friends and family for years to come.
