Searching for the Sacred: Sixty Meditations on Faith, Hope, and Love
by Cameron Trimble
We are walking into a future marked by the challenges of global warming, political unrest, technology, globalization, and the unraveling of institutions. As we come upon new horizons, we cling even more to connection and promise. Searching for the Sacred: Sixty Meditations on Faith, Hope, and Love is a devotional book of stories and parables that gives the reader hope, insight, courage, and resilience. Readers to set aside 30 minutes a day, beginning at any time of the year, to engage one of 60 meditations and the accompanying scriptures and to consider the questions tying the daily thoughts together, creating a meaningful time of reflection. In addition to personal devotional time, Searching for the Sacred can be used in class and small group settings.
Praise for Searching for the Sacred:
As soon as I read a dozen or so of these devotionals, I knew what I wanted to do: go back to the beginning, slow down, savor one each day, and then, after two months, start over again. Rev. Cameron Trimble's insights are rich, poignant, and on point ... and they will help you search each day for the sacred in your daily experience.
