Recommended Reading

Dear Heart, Come Home: The Path of Midlife Spirituality

Joyce Rupp

This is a book whose strength lies in the diverse ways it can be used. It is full of rich spiritual quotes by others and spiritual poems and prayers by Joyce that serve in themselves as fertile soil for any devotional life. Yet chapters are also structured to include personal spiritual vignettes  followed by study questions that make the book a great tool for a more in depth personal or small group study as well. The beginning of Joyce’s introduction gives a good preview of the focus: “Midlife is more than a crisis. It is a summons to grow and a challenge to change. Midlife beckons one inward. It is a move to interiority, a passage to the deeper places where we  discover authenticity, where we realize not out limitations and our grandeur.”


Surrender to Love

David Benner

Reclaiming the truth of belovedness in the reality of God’s love is a transformative (an sometimes hard!) work. This little book begins the process of stripping away delusions of God, revealing a clearer truth of God’s character of unconditional love. Surrender to Love is a reminder of who we are, whose we are, and creates a path back to the reality of our first Love.


Inviting Silence

Gunilla Norris

This is a book that is very accessible to all because of it’s all around simplicity. It has a simple structure, layout, and is written simply to the point. Yet held within the simple writing is great depth and beauty regarding what silence offers us, does in us, and in turn, for the world.


The Divine Dance

Richard Rohr and Mike Morrell

The Divine Dance is an open, ancient invitation – an invitation to join the Trinity (all persons) in an unending circle/spiral of relationship, inclusion and adventure. It is also an invitation (and challenge) to take God out of the box, enter into a new relationship with each entity of the Trinity, and allow the glow of awe and wonder to permeate our lives. What a Dance!
