September 11th, Hope Beyond


First Sight

September 11th, Hope Beyond

This 24 page booklet covers two essays by Laurence Freeman commemorating the anniversary of September 11th.

The first essay, 'Crossing the Abyss,' written shortly after the attacks, reflects on the way we respond to violence. The second, 'The Beauty of Emptiness,' written a year later, reflects on the dimension of time in the process of healing. This will be a gift of hope you will want to share with others.

First Sight

Laurence Freeman is a Benedictine monk, a bestselling author, and head of The World Community for Christian Meditation.  The central argument of this book is that the contemplative life is open to all - that it can be achieved outside the walls of the monastery.  Indeed contemplation and meditation will transform our lives and thus our communities.  In this book, Freeman goes out to touch the hearts and minds of people involved in education, business and finance, mental health, the environment, inter-religious dialogue, collaboration, and citizenship.

The book is a powerful antidote to all those who think they can reach God by running faster.  We have the power for survival, renewal, and spiritual flourishing within us.  This is daunting and needs discipline but the result will transform our lives.
