Pause for God with Aylsham author

Local author Rev Patrick Coghlan is launching his biggest resource book yet – ‘Pause for God’ - at a book signing event in the county later this month.

Pause for God – 366 daily moments with God consists of 366, guided, short, daily moments with God, for those who struggle to find the time or the focus to do that – or for whom this is a completely new concept. There is one for each day of the year (even if it is a leap year).
Patrick, pictured above, said “This has been my biggest, and most difficult project yet, taking roughly four years, from its concept to publication. It is just over a hundred thousand words, and spans more than 700 pages. All that for £14-99!”
The book signing event will take place in the Old School in Meeting Hill on Saturday November 13 from 10-00am to 4-00pm. In addition to his new book, Patrick will have copies of all his other 38 published books for sale, including a selection of children’s novels.
Pause for God book 500CF'Pause for God – 366 daily moments with God' is an accessible, user friendly, off the page, easy to follow, but also challenging resource. The reader is encouraged to understand and put into action the teaching of scripture; and, whilst so doing, to practise the art of journaling, to spend time ‘in the moment’ doing mindfulness type of meditation, to make a prayer response to scripture, and to address any issues linked with the aim of the session that might be difficult to achieve. It looks at both the everyday application of the Bible, and also the eternal.
The book is ideal for busy people, including parents of young children, who maybe struggle to find uninterrupted quiet time. The resource is laid out in such a way that it can be dipped in and out of during the course of a busy day.
Patrick commented, “This may be my biggest project, but I have no plans for it to be my last. I have a teens novel coming out in May 2022, two further manuscripts being considered by publishers, and a third that I am writing currently.”
Patrick lives in Aylsham, and is Counselling Manager for Aylsham Care Trust (ACT); as well as being the minister at Worstead Baptist Church, which is in Meeting Hill just outside North Walsham, where the growing congregation currently meets in the Old School on Sunday mornings for Café Church.
The Old School can be found next to the chapel at NR28 9LR
