As Christians, our spiritual journey constantly brings us back to Jerusalem, to the death and resurrection of Jesus, which gives meaning to all that we do. Strengthened by God’s Spirit we join on the walk to wherever, we share meals, and we tell our stories. We remember. God, as we go along our life’s way, will help us to be aware of His presence with us. He will open our eyes, makes us expectant, eager to be met by Him. We will never complete our spiritual journey. “Your life is a sacred journey. And it is about change, growth, discovery, movement, transformation; continuously expanding your vision of what is possible, stretching your soul, learning to see clearly and deeply, listening to your intuition, taking courageous challenges at every step along the way. You are on the path… exactly where you are meant to be right now… And from here, you can only go forward, shaping your life story into a magnificent tale of triumph, of healing, of courage, of beauty, of wisdom, of power, of dignity, and of love.”
This book while broke into three sections, really is about getting closer to God and using this book to develop meaningful two-day retreats. In past years I have participated in organizing women’s retreats for our church as well as have led some small group sessions. This book is a wonderful study for developing ideas and/or entire programs around what Susan Provost has put in her book, Where Is God In Your Life.
I enjoyed the topics from prayer, spirituality, community, God’s presence and more. This book read more like a reference book and not really a book to just read through and be done with it, but come back to again and again. I enjoyed the workshop sections and they already had my brain churning up ideas for future ways I can use this book. I also liked the schedule samples within the retreats, this is something I could use for planning.
I would recommend this read to be a part of any church library and a handy tool to be used for retreat and small group leaders and organizers.
