About the Author

Ann Fontaine lives and works in Wyoming as an Episcopal priest. Before attending Harvard Divinity School and graduating with a Masters of Divinity, she worked in education and training, traveling for the church to lead workshops and serving as member of various boards and committees. January 6, 1996, on the Feast of the Epiphany, she was ordained to the priesthood. Her vocation as a priest is to serve as an interim priest to congregations who are exploring new ways to see themselves as a community and who are developing new models of leadership. As a result, she has traveled widely throughout her home state of Wyoming. The long drives through open country and high mountain passes have given her time for reflection. In 1998 she began writing responses to the readings set out in the Daily Office of the Episcopal Church's Book of Common Prayer. She shared these daily meditations with friends and family who encouraged her to gather them together into this book.

Format: Paperback
Ann Fontaine's "Streams of Mercy" was published just in time for Advent and Christmas, when we're often way too busy for our own spiritual good. Opening the covers of this lovely, poetic book of daily Biblical commentaries takes the reader on a brief and inspirationsl spiritual retreat. With her economy of language and insight into the human condition, Fontaine's reflections will inspire contemporary Christian pilgrims throughout the liturgical year.

What I have enjoyed about Streams of Mercy is its light touch~by focusing on a kernel of the daily reading and reflecting on it in the musings of a poet, Ann Fontaine breaks open the density of words that have often been a stumbling block for my discipline of reading the lectionary. Ann frees the words from their prose and allows them to dance with you throughout the day. In this book of reflections Ann Fontaine share her insights grounded in the sacredness of everyday life. Thank you; it is a loyal daily companion. Would make a great gift too. In fact, I'm buying one for my mother!

This is a book one would want to keep with them forever. The sign of a well written book of meditations/reflections is if the words send us on a journey with our spiritual centers. Streams of Mercy does indeed provide the vehicle for just such a ride.
