For the last couple of days, I have been happily looking at options for the cover of my book, and this is it!! Thank you to designer Reuben Graham, and to Byron Rempel-Burkholder and Amy Gingerich of Herald Press. Sacred Pauses: Spiritual Practices for Personal Renewal is scheduled for release in February 2013.
Sacred Pauses is a fresh approach to spiritual practice for anyone seeking rest and personal renewal in the midst of daily life. Each chapter explores a different expression of spiritual practice—from classic disciplines like Scripture and prayer to other creative approaches like paying attention, making music, and having fun. With plenty of stories drawn from real life and ideas to try yourself, this book is personal and practical, with a flexible format to use alone or with a group.
Instead of waiting for a vacation to smooth out the knots of tension from everyday life, instead of waiting until the end of the week to shed our weariness, what if we could take time out every day? Live a renewed life every day? Be refreshed by God every day?
Sacred Pauses offers a simple way to do just that—to pause, to connect more deeply with ourselves and with God, and to be renewed.
