In a world that seems to rush us ever onwards, this book is all about pausing.When we stop, and really think, we give ourselves a chance to change direction. We create a space for something new and wonderful to grow. This inspiring collection of reflections on modern life is taken from Pause for Thought, broadcast daily on BBC Radio 2 on the Chris Evans and Vanessa Feltz shows. These pieces offer fresh ways of perceiving the world, of connecting with each other and of negotiating modern life. Together, they provide a guide to finding happiness and achieving spiritual wellness, despite all the challenges we face.Contributors include Gogglebox vicar Kate Bottley, stand-up comics Shazia Mirza and Paul Kerensa, and ex-Communard Richard Coles along with religious leaders Bishop Nick Baines, the Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis and Cardinal Vincent Nichols.Pause For Thought is broadcast on BBC Radio 2 on After Midnight at 00:45 and 02:45, on Vanessa Feltz's show at 05:45 and on Chris Evan's Breakfast Show at 09:20.
