Living In God
Contemplative Prayer and Contemplative Action
Perfect Bound Softcover
Print Type:

In addition to learning practices to dispose yourself to God's presence, you will be able to describe the experience and then live out of it.

You will also learn a method for tracking your actions and over a period of time learn how God is moving in your life and to where God may be calling you.

There are two tools that are effective in disposing yourself to God's presence and it is important to know the two obstacles that keep you from remaining in that presence. Aware of these tools and obstacles, you will be better able to deal with the difficulties that arise and rest more tranquilly in God's presence. From this state of presence, you will learn ways to put the experience into choices that are made in the course of your day. As you track a week or a month's actions, you begin to note patterns that become part of a discerning God's call to you.
