The sacred is all around us, all the time. It is the reality in which we live and move and have our being. But it is our own lives that make this holiness incarnate, and make our places of living and working sacred, and therefore life-giving to all.
Prayer is often perceived as a difficult, "place-less" exercise in which we close our eyes and seek God beyond our everyday experience in an invisible, ethereal realm. However, prayer does not always have to look this way. Prayer, too, can have its own sense of place--landscapes which we can inhabit, explore, and meet God in as tangibly as we might meet a fellow traveler.
In this beautifully compiled book, complete with full-page photographs, highly acclaimed author Margaret Silf takes the reader through seven cityscapes, the places where we live, work, and gather. Whether it be a train, the office, a library, shop, or park, all are fruitful areas for self-discovery, inviting us to connect with the mystery of God wherever we are. This inspirational volume will be returned to time and again as readers discover the divine in the bustle of the city streets.
