Inhaltsangabe: Joyce Rupp's extraordinary reflections on Sophia-Feminine Wisdom in the Hebrew Scriptures-have become a classic. For ten years, this collection of quieting verse and meditative writing, with mandalas and suggestions for spiritual journaling, has gently invited readers to explore the inner journey. Rupp's healing images invite us to dip into Sophia's quiet guidance and come away refreshed. EXCERPT: Thoughts from the Author
This book was born on a sunny day as I sat among the myriad colors and fragrances of my friends' rose garden. I was watching over their two-year old, Elizabeth Ann, who was delightfully playing among the flowers, talking to them, laughing, and splashing the roses with her little watering can. It was there that I became keenly aware of Sophia's presence. I look at the beautiful child at play, and I remembered how Sophia (Wisdom) speaks of herself in Proverbs:
I was at God' side. . . delighting God day after day, ever at play in God's presence, at play everywhere in God's world . . . --Proverbs 8:30-31
It was not the first time that I had experienced this deep awareness of Sophia's presence. There had been many moments in my life when the sudden recognition of her radiant presence had pressed tears into my eyes. Oftentimes it happened when I looked upon something in nature and felt a wordless connection between the vast beauty of the universe and the goodness of Divine life.
This kind of recognition happened when I saw Elizabeth at play. In an instant all the years that stretched between Elizabeth's age and my own were connected. I saw how Sophia had touched my heart time and again and had brought me to truths that had indeed changed my life. I knew then that I wanted to write about Sophia's presence in my life. I wanted to tell how her activity in my spirit has led me to many truths which now inspire my life's journey and give order to my inner being.
Klappentext: In an extraordinary sequence of quieting verse and meditative writing, Joyce Rupp reflects on Sophia--Feminine Wisdom in the Hebrew Scriptures. Each healing reflection invites us to dip into Sophia's quiet guidance and come away refreshed. Sophia emerges as a comforting presence in the process of examining our old beliefs, left-over hurts, self-acceptance and connections with the earth. Accompanying mandalas and suggestions for spiritual exercises and journaling make this book especially valuable for personal meditation and growth, and as a group resource/study guide.
