Twelve Months of Wisdom & Inspiration
In Different Seasons, Seattle Times columnist Dale Turner shares some of his most enlightening and popular articles, the product of his fifteen years as a journalist and his more than fifty years as a Congregational minister. He organizes them by the 12 months of the year, highlighting the holidays and celebrations that mark the passage of time.
While Turner writes lovingly about these occasions, he also describes the times in between—the glory, grief, love, courage, compassion, and joy found in everyday living. He celebrates the search for meaning in life while concentrating on the struggles of real people with observations like, “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. 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.
