Through the famous verses of Ecclesiastes, Joan Chittister reflects on timeless themes: the purpose and value of human life, the balance of joy and sorrow, work and rest, love and loss. In meditating on the contrasting seasons of our lives, she shows how human fulfillment and true happiness come, not from getting and having more and more, but from knowing and valuing what we have. Friendship and laughter, patience and sorrow, humility and compassion, from birth through death all these are God's gifts to us, the precious moments of life itself.

The fruit of her determined prayer for a way to give her spirit time to catch up, this pithy reflection on the qualities of time will introduce highly respected biblical scholar, professor, pastor, widow, friend, and author Bonnie Thurston to a wider audience - everyone who is time-pressed and deadline pressured. The news is good: Time is the creation of a generous God who always provides not only the bare essentials, but usually a feast. As the writer of Ecclesiastes mused: For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven. It is with her trust in this abundance that Thurston explores the mystery of time and the rediscovery of the Judeo-Christian understanding of time as God's sacred and bountiful gift. She looks at time from both a historical and a theological perspective; she studies seasons as measured by the liturgical cycle, the monastic day, the jubilee year, and the Sabbath; and she ponders the meaning of time participles - familiar phrases such as finding time, making time, spending time, and marking time. With her encouragement, the reader will discover that there is enough time - if we redeem the time by reclaiming the Sabbath, the time built into the rhythm of creation by God for rest and re-creation. 'To Everything a Season' offers reflection exercises to help us understand both how we think about and how we use time, as well as suggestions for ways of making Sabbath in the midst of our own crowded lives. The result is an invitation and a recipe for living in the present moment, in God's eternal Now.

For Everything a Season chronicles the fictionalized history of the fierce survival and intense hope of one steadfast family, a family just like a million others, whose dream it was to find freedom in America.
