Description

at the Still Point
A Literary Guide to Prayer in Ordinary Time
  • Format:Paperback
  • Pages:280

The liturgical season of Ordinary Time runs for roughly twenty-nine weeks, from Pentecost Sunday in the spring until the first Sunday of Advent in late fall. It's the longest season of the church year, with few significant events along the way, which gives it a kind of ordinariness that the other seasons lack. There are no narrative high points, no showy colors or costumes, not even a signature hymn or two. At the Still Point expands the genre of spiritual writing to include classic and contemporary fiction and poetry, aimed at inviting you to experience God through your imagination during Ordinary Time. In these pages there are worlds to be explored, characters to meet, images to gaze upon, phrases to savor. You will encounter passages from novelists from Austen and Tolstoy to Dostoevsky and Garrison Keillor and poets from George Herbert and St. John of the Cross to Scott Cairns and Kathleen Norris.

 

"What a delight, to find so extraordinary a collection meant for use in "ordinary time." Any book that includes passages from The Wind in the Willows and Moby Dick, as well as poems by George Herbert and Christina Rossetti, is all right with me. Especially because each of the works chosen is meant to awaken me to the movement of the spirit in daily life.-_Kathleen Norris, author of Dakota, Cloister Walk and Acedia & Me
