How to make the most out of it
Each page includes a verse, a reflection and a story, followed by a question to help you ignite your thought, a prayer and finally a space for your own reflections.
The way to get the most out of it is to first read the verse alone and think of the meaning behind it, afterwards move on to the reflection and story part where the writer offers his inside which will help you see beyond your own understanding.
Once done move to the question and make sure to take your time to answer it, as this part is the most crucial one for you to grow spiritually.
Finally, finish each page with the prayer provided which will bless you for the day.
In the end of each page if you wish to make any notes on what you have learned a dedicated space will allow you to do so.
This method will leave you refreshed and satisfied from the spiritual growth attained and with the confidence and eagerness to read on.
A closer look
The author describes the highs and lows of Christian service, childlessness and caring for his dying wife while still in his thirties. This painful journey resulted in him discovering new spiritual roots in contemplation and silence and new roles as an urban monk and spiritual director that he shares in this book to help others in spiritual need.
