On the challenging road of transformation, and the larger journey of life, we inevitably hit bumps that bruise our souls. Along the highway called holiness we encounter roadblocks and detours that fuel our frustration. When we are weary of the road, it's time to rest awhile. This book invites us to turn off on a rest stop that refreshes our souls, where we can "listen to those sacred stories of both pain and promise from our past, present and future that shape our lives and show us our destiny." Rest Stops for the Soul is filled with the language of the soul. It recounts formative stories of creation, incarnation and redemption from our faith tradition, mythic and folk stories, true life stories and original tales by the author that illuminate the trail of transformation. In addition, Joe Nassal, in his uniquely poetic style crafted in "the storyteller's sanctuary," offers abundant insight into this journey that God calls and impels us to undertake. Father Nassal guides us along the trail of transformation in which God surprises us, saves us and sustains us. He suggests how we carry on when we're "walking on empty," how ritual and a "carousel" humor in the midst of the three-ring circus we call life can help carry us home at last.
On 19 March, 1932, after nine years of planning and building, more than a million Australians crossed the newly opened Sydney Harbour Bridge, the largest arch bridge in the world. This revised edition of Peter Spearitt's biography of the Bridge celebrates the 80th anniversary of the Sydney Harbour Bridge in March 2012. It tells the extraordinary story of the Bridge's design and construction, the drama of its official opening, and the way it has taken a central place in Sydney's celebrations and become a much-loved symbol of the city. The Bridge has inspired great art and drawn visitors from all over the world to marvel and climb it, yet is still so familiar that Sydneysiders refer to it endearingly as the coathanger. The Sydney Harbour Bridge celebrates not only a magnificent structure, but the people who use it.
