News and What's On
With Lent almost upon us - Ash Wednesday is next Wednesday, February 13th - Torch Trust is standing by for a last-minute rush to order Bible study materials in Braille, giant print and audio. The York course is among the most popular Lent studies every year, and for 2013 it's called Glimpses of God, written by the popular David Winter. Glimpses of God is available to borrow or to buy in giant print and braille. This title is also available to borrow or buy in giant print or Braille. This offers 40 devotions tracing God's plan of redemption, and is available to borrow in DAISY audio, giant print and Braille. This year it's called Better than Chocolate! 'Sunday's show looks at how God can speak to us powerfully through music and song, having a real impact on the way we live,' says Rachel. Disability campaigner Jonathan Bartley, who plays in a blues band, and blind singer-songwriter Victoria Oruwari also talk about the influence of Christian music during Sunday's programme. 'Undoubtedly God can speak through song lyrics,' says Jonathan, referring to the songs in the Bible called Psalms as well as to contemporary songs in the charts.

'We enjoy hearing from our listeners, especially those who are blind and partially sighted, about what they think of Reflections - and what they'd like to hear on future programmes - and this is a fantastic way to achieve that,' said Rachel. 'Amazing!' said Rachel. 'But that's the power of social media. Whenever I post an update on the programme it means that everyone who has "liked" us will receive it, and if they choose to "share" it, then all of their friends will also see the update. 'From February, listeners to the programme will be told about the new Facebook page and invited to join, so we anticipate an avalanche of interest!'

'I don't know that I ever met Wendy, yet Wendy is one of the people that I talk about most often,' said Gordon. 'Her story is one I've told a thousand times!'

'I don't know that I ever met Wendy, yet Wendy is one of the people that I talk about most often,' said Gordon. 'Her story is one I've told a thousand times!' 'The Heaths looked for Christian literature in braille for these young people but found very little that was suitable,' explained Gordon. 'They learned braille themselves so they could copy out things for these young people. It grew and grew, and in less than 10 years the Trust had its own property at Hurstpierpoint in Sussex.' There are others in Malawi and elsewhere around the world. The occasional house party of earlier years has developed into an annual programme of up to 25 Christian holidays and retreats.' Magazines and daily Bible readings serve over 10,000 people. Each day over 50 books are loaned from the Torch library of exclusively Christian books. The Torch magazine has a circulation of over 9,000 with a readership spread over 81 countries. The braille edition alone has a circulation of almost 5000, making it the world's largest readership regular publication in that medium. And Torch is at work around the world through partnerships, especially in Africa with a base in Malawi.

Acceptance, understanding, new skills and greater confidence - all experiences listed by people new to sight loss in positive feedback they have given after attending Torch Trust's Moving Forward break. Comments from guests staying at the Torch Holiday & Retreat Centre speak for themselves: 'I feel so safe here, as I am with people who are the same as me and understand my difficulties.' 'I was totally in denial about my sight loss but have learned so much and realised... there is still so much I can do as opposed to dwelling on what I can't do. I feel like it is a new beginning.' 'I have shared things about my sight loss that I have told no one else because I didn't think they would understand.' 'It is such a privilege to give hope to people who feel their lives have come to an end due to losing their sight,' said Holidays Leader Gail Millar. She said the Moving Forward break had been 'life giving' for those who came. Moving Forward is designed especially for people adjusting to life with sight loss. But there are more Moving Forward short breaks planned for March, June and November 2013. Critics said it was theologically wrong in its portrayal of the Trinity but others found its imaginative view of the Christian gospel at work in the ups and downs of life really inspirational. Much of The Shack is autobiographical, about difficulties in Young's life, including sexual abuse at school and adultery. Ian Metcalfe, Director of Publishing at Hodder Faith, preparing this week for the author's promotional tour of the UK in December, sent a message to Torch Trust saying, 'Congratulations on your speedy turnaround!' Update, 5 December 2012: DAISY version now in Torch Library. Blind singer-songwriter Marilyn Baker interviews a blind singer-songwriter on the Torch radio programme Reflections on Sunday - and they're definitely on the same wavelength! 'First a feeling comes to me, then a melody, and then I put words to it.' One of the songs I wrote at this time was "Your Love", written in that period when I felt very low and very useless because
