Another wonderful surprise from Inter Varsity Press, Embracing Contemplative Prayer. Looks very interesting. Glancing through I came upon this snippet of reality:
“We are not short on contemplation as a culture, but what is absent is the contemplation of God”.
Very true. Contemplation is the discipline that belongs most in paradise and can very well be practiced in this life. We are too busy, however, contemplating and thinking about base things – stupid things, that don’t really have much meaning: sports, politics, gossip…..
Look forward to reading and blogging about this.
