"In this book we explore what it means to understand these two aspects of God. How is a realization of these two aspects of God shaping the ways in which we pray? How is it influencing our way of being in the world today?"
Women religious have been moving deeper into God's presence for centuries. Some critics of LCWR seem to allege that the sisters have left spirituality behind. Yet all who heard Sister Ilya Delio's presentation at the 2013 Assembly, and everyone who has witnessed any aspect of LCWR Assemblies through the years, can have no doubt that their spirituality grows constantly deeper and richer.
But it isn't well known.
I'm eager to have this new book from the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR), titled Praying in These Emergent Times, $5 plus postage (volume discounts available). The book will offer reflections by Catholic sisters -- images, stories, symbols, and questions that are shaping how they encounter God and how they pray, plus questions and suggestions for deepening the reader’s own prayer. The image above \gives a peek at the book's artwork, too.
LCWR will prints only the number of copies that are pre-ordered by February 28, 2014 at
https://lcwr.org/media/news/order-now-lcwrs-reflective-journal-praying-these-emergent-times . The books will be mailed by April.
Please share this information as widely as you'd like. I am a big fan of previous LCWR publications and so I'm confident this will be excellent. Their publications pull me forward toward God who is coming to us from the future - and ground me in what is happening here and now - and let me experience all this in the loving quiet and powerful invitation of God's presence.
It could be enriching to somehow share this piece of our journeys...
