At Unicorn Tree Books in Lincoln Central Market we have the following candles available that we think would be perfect for lighting this Sunday - and perhaps every Sunday thereafter during this pandemic as a sign of solidarity and faith! The call states: “Whether you are continuing to worship as congregations or not, we have the great privilege and freedom to be able to call upon God, wherever we are, individually and corporately, for healing in our nation.” People are asked to light a candle in their window at 7 p.m. on Sunday “as a visible symbol of the light of life, Jesus Christ”. The call has been issued by the presidents of the ecumenical grouping Churches Together in England and is also supported by Churches Together in Britain and Ireland, Cytûn, the Church of Scotland, and the Evangelical Alliance. As well as calling for prayer for the Government and those working to contain the virus, such as health-care workers, and those who are most vulnerable, the statement lists some actions that Christians might take: “Alongside your prayers, take the opportunity to telephone or email someone who is isolated, buy some additional food for your local foodbank, or offer to deliver shopping for an elderly neighbour.” We re open as usual, but If you live locally we can deliver them to you if you are self isolating, just phone, email, facebook or tweet us to arrange this. 01522 525557 #books #book #indiebookshop #christianbooks #christianbookshop #faith #lightacandle #candles #prayer

This week's Bookshop Boss recommendations from Unicorn Tree Books in Lincoln Central Market... 'Time to Act' from Christian Climate Action arrived into the shop yesterday and we are now done to only one copy left in stock... Its a resource book with a series of chapters from a range of different people, and though it's main appeal is to those involved with XR & other Climate Change groups its also well worth reading at church or individual level for consideration on a response and actions to take for change. Then new in the Holy Habits series is 'Serving' both the individual biblical reflections book and the group studies material... Like the others in the series this is excellent material that really helps you explore deeper what 'Serving' really means in a Christian context and in our everyday lives. Cathy Madavan's 'Irrepressible' is a really good book on the concept of Resilience, what it is and how to have it! Easy to read and with some great insightful question at the end of each chapter - that though for Individuals could with a bit of tweaking make for an incredible group study too. Finally Ken Costa's 'Joseph of Arimathea' is a beautiful hardback with an interior that has bright yellow splashes throughout, a bit like the bright moments of courage when we take a stand... Of which this book actually talks about quite a lot... Because of its production values this one would make an incredible gift I think. Of course there are a lot more books than these that arrived in this week... And also we had Palm Crosses and more Easter Cards & books in too, so it would be great to see some of you come in and pick up some great resources ;) Remember without you there is no us, so we love it when you do come in and support your local bookshop like us here at Unicorn Tree Books in Lincoln Central Market. #books #book #indiebookshop #christianbooks #christianbookshop #spirituality #church #brf #spck #xr #climatechange #resilience #biblecharacters #authors #reviews #lincoln #Lincolnshire #market

Some Wow books in stock now at Unicorn Tree Books in Lincoln Central Market... First up the newest from local author, Margaret Dickinson! The Spitfire Sisters is the third book in the Maitland Trilogy and is as ever a great read. Then a special counter offer while stocks last! False Tongues by Kate Ellis is only £4.99 and is a brilliant read with her usual blend of mystery, Church politics, and insightful relationship explorations. Finally the most wonderful children's book that this Forest Church Leading adult is totally in love with! Happy - A Children's Book of Mindfulness by Nicola Edwards & Kate Hickey is beautiful, just beautiful and explains mindfulness (and the core of Forest Church too if you ask me!) simply, elegantly and experientially. Honestly this book isn't just for children despite what the cover says, just reading it feels like a journey into mindfulness as well as into the great outdoors where nature speaks and embrace us! So come and visit us at Unicorn Tree Books in Lincoln Central Market to pick up these great books - and the many more in the shop like them. #books #book #indiebookshop #generalbooks #childrensbooks #childrensactivities #thrillers #authors #lincoln #Lincolnshire #localbookshop #littletiger #pan #spck #margaretdickinson #nicolaedwards #katecharles
