Nassau, Bahamas - First featured in the Religious Section of The Tribune and in the Bahama
Journal, Christian Conch Salad is a collection of
devotional meditations by Rev. Angela C. Bosfield Palacious, the first
Female Bahamian Anglican Priest and formidable yet humble woman of God.
Designed for personal reflection as well as family and group discussion,
these devotions cover a broad range of practical spirituality both at
home and out in the world. Through her powerful autobiography Reverend
Palacious encourage readers in spiritual awareness and self-love as part
of their relationship with God.
A book signing is set for Saturday, February 18th from
11am to 1pm at Buy the Book bookstore (opposite Saunders
Beach and west of KFC).
The title of Christian Conch Salad (a Bahamian delicacy) is intended to convey the idea of a spicy collection of “materially-mixed meditations”. Just as conch salad has conch, tomatoes, onion, sweet pepper, celery, lime, salt and other ingredients if desired, so too, this book consists of reflections on a vast array of subjects over an undetermined period of time.
Some of these meditations were written for airing on radio, others were written for church bulletins and newspapers. They are presented as observations on life as seen through the eyes of a Bahamian Christian.
