Item description for Your Daily Life Is Your Temple by Anne Rowthorn...
Overview Many of us sense that God is with us in our daily lives but can't put words to the longings we feel, and most churches and synagogues aren't helping us. If we still go to church, we wonder why we are there and feel we've lost the connections between the faith we practice on Sunday morning and a passionate life in the everyday world.
Many of us sense that God is with us in our daily lives but can't put words to the longings we feel, and most churches and synagogues aren't helping us. If we still go to church, we wonder why we are still there and feel we've lost the connections between the faith we practice on Sunday morning and a passionate life in the everyday world.
Using Carlo Carretto's definition of spirituality as "a way of thinking, living and sanctifying our lives," Rowthorn shows how we can uncover an authentic faith for our times. To be passionately engaged, all we need to do is take the ordinary acts of our lives and see them differently. We have only to unwrap the gifts we already hold in our hands--the people we meet, the places we go, and the choices we make about work, children, friendships, politics, the arts, and hospitality.
