Item description for By Willoway Brook: Exploring the Landscape of Prayer by Cindy Crosby...
"There's a skin of the landscape I'm beginning to peel back, and I'm finding a map of sorts in the world around me; a landscape of prayer, creation that cannot help but praise the creator. Symbols in the landscape beckon me further up and deeper in. When I'm on the prairie, the barriers come down."
So begins Cindy Crosby's book of elegant, warm prose. With honest and friendly wisdom, she observes parallels between the natural world and the inner landscape of prayer, using as a backdrop her own backyard--the tallgrass prairie landscape of Illinois. In a time she we are pulled in so many directions by the "busyness" of our lives, By Willoway Brook invites us to stop, carve out a quiet place, and to communicate with the God who created it all.
