Item description for At Sea With God: A Spiritual Guidebook to the Heart and Soul by Margaret Silf...
Overview British author and retreat director Margaret Silf develops the image of life as a sea voyage to shed new light on the spiritual journey. The art of sailing life's waters is explored with this delightful self-guided retreat. Silf uses seven aspects of sailing to explore the spiritual life: the boat, the cargo, setting sail, navigating uncharted waters, the perils of the deep, being adrift, and dropping anchor. Her creative use of scripture, reflection questions, journal starters, and real-life seafaring wisdom enables readers to reflect on their experience with fresh insight. This gentle spiritual guidebook unites ancient spiritual practices with contemporary experience in a compassionate, enlightening manner that Christians of all faiths will appreciate.
Publishers Description A beloved spiritual leader shares wisdom and comfort for the voyage of life. Hailed for her compassionate, enlightening insight that unites contemporary concerns with ancient spiritual paths, Margaret Silf has guided thousands of men and women in powerful journeys of self-discovery. "At Sea with God" invites readers to experience her most invigorating message to date, using the ocean as a metaphor for the chances and changes we must all confront. Drawing on seven vivid images, "At Sea with God" casts a beautiful new light on: The "vessels" that carry each of us through a lifetime of events Cargo, which has the potential to sustain us or to weigh us down The process of setting sail for unfamiliar destinations Navigating uncharted waters, even when the best path is difficult to discern Taming fear during storms and shipwrecks Rejoicing in the serenity of calm seas and dealing with the times when we feel we are "going nowhere" Choosing the best time and place to drop anchor Written in gentle prose reminiscent of Henri Nouwen's and C. S. Lewis's, "At Sea with God" offers a short course in strengthening the soul using meditative tradition. For Christians of all denominations, Margaret Silf has created a safe harbor to savor again and again.
