“Dreams for Christianity” aims to cross cultural barriers and engage young people in church life

cartoon by Dennis Garlick

Dreams for Christianity invites clergy, chaplains, teachers, Christians to explore the activities of the dreams through music, prose, listening, learning, and just having fun together with students, young families, and those of other faiths.

Whether it be discussing with our cousins of the same Abrahamic family, the Jews and Muslims, or singing in a school choir’s competition, or inviting teenagers to take a leadership role in the church—all the dreams focus on breaking generation and cultural barriers to encourage unity, ‘oneness’ and greater understanding.

For Bishop John Parkes of Wangaratta, “this book seems to be more than a book, instead it is in my experience more like a recollection of conversations with beloved companions… as you speak the truth in love…of the mighty acts of God in our language, our cultural configuration, our place and time. You have moved into deep waters here….”

Dreams for Christianity, together with its companion book, O My God! Where Are You? discuss programs over two years for Advent, Lent and Ordinary Sundays, based on St. Luke’s gospel and his Book of Acts. For fear of becoming sanctimonious, a Really Intelligent Atheist, called Ria, (alias retired lawyer Barbara Coddington) is a companion through the book.

This book will be featured in this month’s Reader’s Digest Magazine.
