At Last a Contemporary Commentary! Jun 14, 2007
I was asked to lead a mediation on the Stations for 20 Episcopal church women. In my research I found only one other female source. The "other" was archaic as all get out. Diana is fresh, totally in touch with today's world, women's needs and strengths! The illustrations were a powerful accompaniment.
Lenten meditations Apr 26, 2000
"Were You There?: Stations of the Cross," set in an African village, is a book of insightful Lenten meditations by theologian Diana L. Hayes. Accompanying the prayers and reflections are paintings by Tanzanian artist Charles S. Ndege who incorportates typical scenes along the shores of Lake Victoria to add impact to his powerful images. Impressive work. Marcia Maguire, UMC church librarian
