9780006281726: Celebrating Life: Finding Happiness in Unexpected Places

This is a collection of short meditations on happiness which began with the 'Credo' columns written for The Times. 'In these meditations, I've tried to say what happiness is, how we make it, how we lose it, and how we sometimes walk past it without recognising it. We miss it by looking in the wrong places. In consuming, as if it were something we could buy. In leisure, as if it were somewhere we could escape. In changes of relationship and lifestyle, as if it were just over the horizon. It isn't somewhere else; it's where we are.' Rabbi Jonathan Sacks This is a delightful collection of short pieces reflecting on life, families, children, community, faith, friendship and hope. Rabbi Jonathan Sacks has rewritten his original 'Credo' articles and made them the starting point for this new book.
