9780829428100: Compass Points: Meeting God Every Day at Every Turn

You can find God as easily at the car wash as you can at the cathedral. For many Christians, it’s relatively effortless to experience God in special places, such as a church or a mountaintop; or at special times, such as the birth of a child or the wedding of two people deeply in love. But it can be quite a challenge for us to meet God in the most ordinary of places, in the most ordinary of times. God in the magnificent? No problem. God in the mundane? That’s a bit harder.
In Compass Points, best-selling Ignatian spirituality author and beloved speaker Margaret Silf leads us to discover God beyond the grandiose and to find the Divine in our daily lives. Through short but powerful meditations and vignettes based on her own authentic spiritual experiences, Silf reveals the interior process of Ignatian mindfulness—of which a core tenet is that God can be found in all things.
By joining Silf on her journey through real life in the real world, readers will have their own eyes, minds, and hearts opened to the Divine experience and will come to more fully recognize God’s active, abiding presence in everything that they see and do.

Book Description:

Many Christians believe that God is experienced
only at special times, such as during prayer or while on a pilgrimage. Some feel that we can connect with God only in special places, such as a church or a holy site. Still others feel that God can truly be experienced only by special, spiritually trained people, such as priests. Surely, they assume, God is not to be found in ordinary times, in ordinary places, by ordinary people.
In Compass Points, best-selling Ignatian spirituality author Margaret Silf enables us to see God beyond the grandiose and introduces us to the Divine in our daily lives. Through short but powerful meditations and vignettes based on her own authentic spiritual experiences, Silf reveals the interior process of Ignatian mindfulness—of which a core tenet is that God can be found in all things.
By joining Silf on her journey through real life in the real world—including, for example, a trip to the local car wash, an encounter with a rabbit while walking down a path, and a ride up the elevator of the Empire State Building—readers will have their own eyes, minds, and hearts opened to the Divine experience and will come to recognize God’s active presence in everything that they see and do.
