I'm sadly behind on the pace, but I am still reading. In the past few weeks I've read Nanette Sawyer's Hospitality~the Sacred Art: Discovering the Hidden Spiritual Power of Invitation and Welcome (the author was our presenter at the RevGalBlogPals Big Event 3), and I've also dipped into a resource she shared with us, Psalms for Praying: An Invitation to Wholeness, by Nan C. Merrill. Merrill has written absolutely gorgeous inclusive language versions of the Psalms. They make you feel like you're in an intimate relationship with God. I found Nanette's program, which included the use of Merrill's book, consciousness-altering. It's hard to say more about it–it's all a bit of a blur–but I am grateful to both authors for the ways in which they are touching my life right now.
Here's a picture taken on the top deck, in the evening, where we experienced the grace of Nanette's leadership and where I had the chance to be one of the readers when we passed Merrill's book, one to another.
