Title New Daylight Deluxe May - August 2022: Your daily Bible reading, comment and prayer
Edited by Gordon Giles
Description

Each issue of New Daylight provides four months of daily Bible readings and comment, with a regular team of contributors drawn from a range of church backgrounds. New Daylight covers a varied selection of Old and New Testament passages, biblical themes, characters and seasonal readings.

Contributors this issue include: Sally Welch, Lucy Moore, Elizabeth Rundle, Louise Davis, Naomi Starkey, Veronica Zundel, Andrea Skevington, Murdo Macdonald, Bob Mayo, and Sheila Walker.

The editor writes:

I have been the editor of New Daylight since 2016. I have commissioned and edited 20 issues, trying to meet the challenge of producing Bible reading notes which are relevant, interesting, challenging, supportive and encouraging. Above all, my aim has been to share the good news of the gospel in a way which deepens our relationship with Jesus Christ. I have been helped and supported in this aim by a wonderful team of writers, and I am profoundly grateful for their contributions. I have also been both challenged and supported by the many letters I have received from readers, some of whom have become regular correspondents. Whenever I commission a new writer, I remind them that our first priority is you, the reader, and that whatever we write should be done with you in mind, and I hope that I have been successful in communicating this to you.

As much as I have enjoyed this work, it is now time to hand over the task. I do so reluctantly, but knowing it is the right thing both for me and, more importantly, for New Daylight. The new editor is Gordon Giles, canon chancellor of Rochester Cathedral. He is an excellent choice, and I am sure that New Daylight will be in good hands with him. I will continue to contribute as a writer, sharing the journey as we go forwards.

This issue begins with my writing on ‘Standing still’, continuing with our theme for this year: ‘Look back and remember, he was with you; stand still and realise, he is with you; walk forward and trust, he will be with you always.’ I share with you my reflections on the habit of Christian mindfulness – being aware of Christ in the present moment and celebrating his love. I end with a favourite quote of mine: ‘Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love’ (Teresa of Ávila).

It is my prayer that the reflections in New Daylight have enabled God’s presence to ‘settle into your bones’ and helped your soul to freedom and that they will continue to do so.
