New Book Exploring Illness and Loss from Birmingham Author

June 18th, 2019

Shortly after becoming Chairman of the Birmingham District of the Methodist Church, Donald Eadie was told that he had a degenerative disc disease. Following three major spinal operations, he was forced to retire, and to face the letting go of identity and role, feelings of marginalisation and abandonment – living with the death of the old life, and not being able to imagine a new one with meaning and purpose.

Into the Foothills of Transformation is a collection of Donald’s reflections and journal writings, and letters, prayers and poems.

“His accessible, inspiring, challenging, intensely moving words are real and come from the heart. They reveal a depth of thought that emerges from life restricted now but not overwhelmed, from a spirit forever free. Donald takes us through pain, frustration, anger, sorrow and joy to the foothills; to somewhere we don’t know and are just beginning to understand: a place of vision and imagination.” Joy Mead
