Item description for What Mennonites Are Thinking, 1998 by Merle Good & Phyllis Pellman Good...

Mennonites are increasingly engaged in the larger world these days. But they are still tormented by how to "be in the world, but not of it!" This collection of Mennonite thinking by some of their most perceptive writers, poets, and sages is, above all, honest and, occasionally, wistful. Includes fiction, humor, thoughtful essays about identity, book reviews, film capsules, and international features. Pointed and powerful, the book is a window into the soul of a people who intend to live with integrity, but are candid about the trouble it can be!

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.
