For those seeking inspiration and devotion for Lent and beyond, A Path to Wholeness is an invitation to Lenten observance through Biblical passages and reflections. The ache of the human heart has always been to be made whole. The thrust of the Christian hope is that it can only come to that wholeness by way of a personal relationship with God, through Christ. This book is intentionally written as an avenue towards deepening, strengthening, and for some, beginning such a relationship during the forty days of Lent. This thoughtful book, focusing on Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, is part of a four-part series on seasonal observances and devotions.
Grace Notes is a collection of stories and essays about the paths we take to discover and claim our wholeness. The title comes from the author's term for the moments of unexpected joy or unlikely solutions she noticed along the way and sometimes captured in her personal journals. Within the complexity and singularity of each unique path are common themes - the demand for self-awareness; experiences of failure, loss, and redemption; and the healing forces of love and grace. Within these themes lie the stories of our lives. Although each of our stories is ours alone, we travel together and learn together, and every human story is a reflection of the broader human story. We are reminded that wholeness is both our birthright and our charge - to live fully, joyfully, and honestly with love and grace our loyal companions.
