Use Still Waters: Beloved to create a Retreat or a Day of Prayer.
Still Waters offers a way to create an atrium-like prayer space for adults. Using these materials, an environment is easily prepared with ten meditation spaces. For example, the packet titled Beloved leads participants to read a scripture verse, work with art materials, contemplate meaningful questions, or simply pray in response to scripture exploring who we are in Christ. Perfect for course prayer, parent education, parish retreat, or a day of prayer.
Parenting is a challenging call. Many resources for parents focus on the child, but Parenting: A Sacred Path is for parents to reflect on their experience, with all of its joys and struggles, as an invitation to grow in faith, love, trust and compassion. Each of six chapters provides an opening reflection for personal or group use, followed by a week of quotes for reflection and prayer. The gift of this simple book is in the self-understanding, acceptance and growth as parents nurtured week by week. It's perfect as a gift to parents, or as a tool to lead reflection groups.
