From the Publisher

The book of poetry by Peter Menkin, Obl Cam OSB, titled, “Seasons of Faith: Religious & Spiritual Poetry,” is a collection of work created 1999 to 2003. Most of the poems were written with the parish newsletter and website in mind, Church of Our Saviour (Episcopal), Mill Valley, California.
A collection of statements and contemplations, a work of love and religious feeling/devotion that expresses a spiritual viewpoint, this collection of about 94 pages is the result of a practice of regular worship, and contemplation. The Psalms have also been an inspiration to the poet throughout the years, with the specific Sunday meditation discipline of the period of reading Psalm 119 in entirety at one time. This particular practice was recommended by Episcopal Priest Zoila Schoenbrun. Readers of the English version have said they use the poems in meditation during their personal prayer time, usually in the morning.
Rector of Church of Our Saviour, The Reverend Richard Helmer wrote the introduction to the book, now in paperback and available in English, Urdu, and Spanish versions. All the books are published by Xlibris and available through that publisher, and other places, including Amazon.com.
Poet Peter Menkin lives in Mill Valley, California where almost all of the poems were written, and enjoys his work as a Religion Writer for Church of England Newspaper, London, Religious Intelligence, London, and San Francisco Examiner.com. He is engaged to be married to Linda Shirado with a wedding slated in Church at the beginning of 2013. Father Pat Michaels of Our Lady of Mount Carmel (Roman Catholic) will officiate. The poet is 66 years of age as of Fall, 2012.
