Lifelines: Wrestling the Word, Gathering up the Grace

Lifelines: Wrestling the Word, Gathering up the Grace
This collection of poems emerged from the traumatic experience of the poet, Carla A Grosch-Miller, in losing her brother violently. Following this, her father died quickly while her mother's death was protracted. As a priest, she pulled back from ministry, but resisted the temptation to leave the Church. She took to writing poems as a lifeline, and through this realised that God had no intention of leaving her. Her compassion gradually returned as she cared for her dying mother, and full recovery emerged over several years. Writing these poems helped her to handle and express her trauma. She found that at the heart of her experience was the mystery at the heart of Christian faith; that a seed falls into the earth and dies in order for new life to rise up.
