Win a Copy of ‘At the Still Point’

posted by Kris Rasmussen

For a few years now I have tried to be more observant of the church calendar in my devotional life as a Christian. I own several books about incorporating liturgical prayer and spiritual practice into my daily life. I have read some of them. But I admit to being a little intimidated by it all at times and certainly I am not as successful as I would like to be at being mindful of the ebb and flow of the church year.

However, this summer I am enjoying a new devotional by friend, successful devotional author,  and speaker Sarah Arthur.  “At the Still Point”  is unlike other devotionals in that it  combines excerpts from great pieces of literature and connects them to the church season known as ordinary time .

Oh, no, don’t worry, you  don’t have to be  a book geek like me or a divinity school graduate like Sarah to read this book. In fact, it’s a great way to introduce you - or reacquaint yourself  – with authors as varied as  classic writers like John Donne or Chesterton to more contemporary authors like Luci Shaw, Bret Lott or Enuma Okoro.

You can read an excerpt here and you can also receive a free copy from me. Send me an email at readmymindbooks@gmail.com by Friday at 5 p.m. EST and I will do a random drawing.
