Spiritual Formation on the Run











Spiritual Formation on the Run

Meditations to Build a Busy Life

Editorial Reviews

Product Description
Many of us live life on the run. But busyness is not an excuse to neglect the spiritual formation of our souls. In fact the busier we are, the more we need spiritual formation. This book allows us to practice lectio divina, which is the Latin for spiritual reading. Lectio divina opens us up to the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives and instills in us the disciplines of reading/listening, meditating, praying and contemplation. Short and crisp, the meditations and stories in this practical and thought-provoking book will give you focus in your life, rejuvenate your soul and draw you closer to God.
