book study: The Practice of the Presence of God
Our weekly book study is beginning a new study starting Wednesday, March 1st @ 6:30P PST on the book, The Practice of the Presence of God, Br. Lawrence.
Our Book Study remains online via Zoom connection. Click here for links and more information.
The Practice of the Presence of God is a spiritual classic that is really a collection of conversations and letters from Br. Lawrence of the Resurrection, a 17th century, French Carmelite monk. Starting life as a poor, uneducated, peasant and soldier, Br. Lawrence, from the kitchen of his monastery as lowly cook, created a personal discipline and way of practicing a constant awareness of God’s presence that transported him into a radically different way of perceiving life. He inspired those around him, and through his few surviving letters, notes of conversations he had with a friend, and a few other bits, he has continued to inspire us for over three hundred years.
All our book studies deal with better understanding our spiritual formation and especially, contemplative practice, and after working through Falling Upward, a look at second half of life spirituality, the direct simplicity of Br. Lawrence’s practice of presence seemed a perfect way to make second half spirituality an intimate reality.
Come join us Wednesday nights at 6:30P PST to dive into a different world of experience and a different level of presence.
Since this is an online study, you’ll need to get your own copy of the book. The Amazon link is here. It’s important to get this specific edition or we won’t be able to follow each other in the study. There are many translations, versions, editions available that vary greatly. Amazon shipping should be quick, but order as soon as you can.
Hope to see you on the little screen for this!
