Item description for With the Dawn Rejoicing: A Christian Perspective on Pain and Suffering by Melannie Svoboda...
Overview Who among us hasn t felt pain? It is a universal experience. For some pain is minor; for others it is a constant companion. This deeply spiritual exploration of pain offers encouragement for anyone dealing with suffering whether physical, psychological, or spiritual. It is rooted in scripture and real life, and its 36 brief chapters touch on the many ways pain affects our lives. Recently diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disorder, Sr. Melannie writes from personal experience and with deep wisdom. Rooted in our Christian faith, her meditations explore topics such as: the universality of pain, pain as wise advisor, Jesus the healer, dealing with setbacks, befriending the imperfect, pain and laughter, the suffering of the saints, biblical images of suffering, and death and resurrection. Each chapter begins with an engaging quotation from a wide variety of sources. The quotation is followed by a meditation on the topic and an appropriate prayer. Each chapter concludes with a question or two for personal reflection as well as a suggested action for the day. Sr. Melannie believes that God is speaking to us always in our sorrows and joys, disappointments and successes, our fears and hopes and that God speaks to us in our pain in a special way. It is her hope that this book will be a helpful guide for your listening. This is a wonderful resource for meditation and prayer and a great gift book.
