The Heart’s Journey Through the Seasons
We long for connections in the midst of disconnected lives—connections to ourselves, to others, to the world we live in. Most of all we yearn to connect with the sacred. In The Circle of Life Joyce Rupp and Macrina Wiederkehr invite us to listen carefully and closely to the wisdom of each season. Using reflections, poems, prayers, and meditations, they explore the relationship between the seasons of the earth and the seasons of our lives. The Circle of Life encourages readers to connect their experience of the unfolding seasons with inner spiritual growth and movement and to know that the presence of God is within and around us all.
“Joyce Rupp and Macrina Wiederkehr explore how the earth’s rhythm and harmony of moving from one season to another is a wonderful metaphor for our own lived experience. The earth’s continual transformation, the opportunities and the challenges of each season and how this relates to our life. The wisdom of Rupp and Wiederkehr comes through in such a gentle beautiful way and will encourage you to surrender to the natural process of transformation. Throughout the book is the well-needed message that we are surrounded by and filled with the presence of God.”
