Living Peace: A Spirituality of Contemplation and Action
John Dear has long been an active presence and participant in the
ecumenical peace movement, the spiritual life and
discovering/maintaining the inner spiritual life.
Contemplation + action. These are the two dynamics, exploring the
meaning and moving, in and through this exploration, into the action
of sharing and serving.
Here it starts. "Every morning, I take time to sit in the silence of
the present moment, in the peace of God. I breathe in the spirit of
peace. I return to the deep inner peace which is the heart of the
spiritual life. I imagine sitting beside God. I listen for God's
word of peace, that invitation to share in a life of love."
This book captures today's spiritual hunger and longing in a
directive and self-directed way.
