Words to Inspire

Healing on the Streets, Medieval Spirituality.. what’s next?

In an unexpected development, March sees our D. H. Ruffle Memorial Library teaming up with the Rev. William De Arteaga and his blog posts. We are pretty excited!

William is known internationally as a Christian author, historian and expert on revivals and the rebirth of Christian healing movement. He’s also a  regular contributor to the Pneuma Review. I read his book, “Quenching the Spirit” in the early 1990s and I was moved and inspired by it. I feel privileged to be partnering with him in bringing his writings to a wider audience. Check these links out:

MORE NEWS: I’m building a brand new section devoted to the Eastern Orthodox Christian tradition, kicking off with a video from famous American “Bible Answer Man” Hank Hanegraaff talking about his conversion to Orthodoxy in 2017. Be among the first to see it – more content on the way!

Do go visit our site and share with others. I’m putting a lot of work into making it the place that will be truly honouring to our Lord Jesus Christ and edifying to His Bride here on earth. Oh boy – so much happening, I forgot to mention the Medieval Spirituality bibliography I’ve just published! — Blessings in Jesus, John & Gladdys Ruffle

Thomas á Kempis – Indexed and Re-Typeset

Imitation of Christ: Making Lent Reading Easy

This version is re-typeset and each chapter is bookmarked, making it an extremely easy devotional read at home or on the move.

I have found “The Imitation” a wonderful devotional daily read, and if you’ve never read it, maybe this Lent is a good time to start.

I highly recommend it! Remember, you can download the pdf to your device, so you can read it even when you’ve no internet connection.

The text is divided into four books, which provide detailed spiritual instructions: “Helpful Counsels of the Spiritual Life”, “Directives for the Interior Life”, “On Interior Consolation” and “On the Blessed Sacrament”.
