Item description for When the Rain Speaks: Celebrating God's Presence in Nature by Melannie Svoboda...

Reading this book is a uniquely beautiful experience. Sr. Melannie has a gift for describing everyday experiences of nature as mystical adventures. She invites readers to see as a child might, looking at something as if for the first time. Each of her meditations offers a unique perspective on things adults often take for granted. In The Art of Beholding, for example, she says that beholding lies at the heart of the spiritual life and that it is the first step toward contemplation, which is the prayerful attentiveness to something a word in scripture, the blueness of an iris, a movement of one s spirit, the song of a chickadee, the sound of rain tapping on a porch roof. Sister Melannie is aware of what lies beneath the surface and points it out for us. It s like she s saying, Don t miss what is right in front of your eyes, all these spectacular gifts of nature. Enjoy them, praise them, and pray with them. They speak of God. This is a wonderful spirituality book for adults of all ages and a gift book that will be cherished.

Reviews - What do customers think about When the Rain Speaks: Celebrating God's Presence in Nature?

The Rain Spoke to Us  May 24, 2008
When the Rain Speaks was a beautiful addition to our daily prayer time, each night after praying we would share one of the readings by reading it aloud and then discussing how these short lessons or stories related to us. Sister Melannie has a gift in sharing God's nature with us so that it is a very personal experience. I recommend this book for families and adults who pray together and share the wonders of God's love for us.
A Spiritual Book using Nature  May 3, 2008
This is Svoboda's latest book and she focuses on Nature in order to see God in all things.
