Take a wide-eyed look at your lifeâ€”the commonplace, joyful, and even heartbreaking eventsâ€”and discover the presence of God, hidden in plain sight. This is the invitation of Christine Eberleâ€™s Finding God in Ordinary Time.
Each daily reflection contains a true story and a nugget of spiritual insight, accompanied by thought-provoking questions and a memorable Scripture quote. Together they guide readers across four terrains where the divine presence may be hidden in plain sight.Â Warm, accessible, and surprisingly funny, Christine offers spiritual nourishment to people skeptical or weary of religion, while still giving the faithful something to chew on.Â
Advance Praise for Finding God
Â â€śFrom a woman experienced in Jesuit spirituality, in work, in relationships, and in life, comes this sensitive book about finding God in the real world.â€ť
â€”James Martin, SJ, author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything: A Spirituality for Real Life
â€śThis is the perfect book for any adult in search of an adult relationship with an adult God.Â Filled with deep insight and humor, it will gently enliven the hearts of those who are spiritual but not religious as well as those who are religious but not spiritual. No matter the stage in your prayer journey, this lovely book will speak to you.â€ťÂ
â€”Bro. Mickey McGrath, OSFS, artist, author and storyteller
