Item description for Today Pop Goes Home by Merle Good...
Overview Charles Snavely, a feisty man in his 70s, lives at the other end of the house, the "grandparents" part. His son Lewis and his daughter-in-law Esther live in the main house with their children. Charles does not want to go to a retirement home. Esther waffles both ways. Lewis is on the fence. A serious drama about the difficult theme of aging. Do our parents respect us? Do our children respect us? Can the extended family be a home--or is a retirement institution better for everyone? Poignant, tender and entertaining.
Publishers Description In a remote canyon in northern New Mexico the early morning stillness is broken by voices chanting praises to the Lord. And thus begins the daily cycle in the Godcentered life and search of the Benedictine monks at the Monastery of Christ in the Desert.Seeking God is a monastic tapestry. The daily life of the monks is interwoven with the seasonal changes and celebrations and the candid words of the monks as they speak of their life their hopes and doubts their hardships fears and joys their prayer. Weaving this tapestry together are the hauntingly beautiful chants songs of praise and reverence that echo through the darkness before dawn throughout the day through the solemnity of Vespers in the evening and Compline at night. The majestic beauty of the environment captured in every season reflects a peace and tranquility that becomes an integral part of this monastic tapestry. The high red rock walls of the canyon where eagles fly cradle the valley whose stillness is broken only by the flowing waters of the Chama River and the winds that occasionally funnel through. Seeking God presents the ongoing process of the monastic way through the words and activities of these Benedictine monks as they move through the day and through the seasons in their search for God through prayer work study and song.
