The author of The Other Side of Silence here teams up with renowned South African writer and personal friend, Methodist pastor Trevor Hudson. Together they have drawn a road map for one year’s spiritual journey. Along the way they visit fifty-two destinations, such difficult-to-get-to places as “Showing Love in the Marketplace,” “Hanging on When Life Is Difficult,” “Forgiving Those Who Hurt Us,” “Finding Out God’s Will,” “Balancing Heaven and Earth,” and more.
A year-long companion and guide that’s practical yet inspirational, Journey of the Spirit features fifty-two meditations, plus discussion questions, prayers and quotations drawn from a wide range of sources, and daily scripture passages. The probing questions are appropriate as either discussion or journal prompts, making this ideal for group or private use. In addition, the book also uses throughout examples of relevant incidents from the authors’ friendship, as well as anecdotes from the people they’ve helped in their separate professional lives as therapist and pastor.
This is a work of both popular spirituality and prayer resources. As such, it will be eagerly read by Morton Kelsey fans, Christians of all denominations, and spiritual seekers. It’s also excellent for small faith communities, parish study groups, and parish prayer groups. Homilists will find in it inspiration, while retreat directors and spiritual directors will find it a wonderful new title to recommend.
