Sacred in the City: Urban Landscapes of Prayer

Sacred in the City: Urban Landscapes of Prayer

Margaret Silf

$18.99

Hardback
Sacred in the City explores the spiritual in the urban, meeting people where they live, and helping them to discover God in the middle of the humdrum and every day. Prayer is often perceived as a difficult, "place-less" exercise in which we close our eyes and seek God beyond our everyday experience in an invisible realm. It does not have to be this way. Prayer can have its own sense of place in landscapes which we can inhabit and explore, and we can meet God as tangibly as we might meet a fellow traveller. In this beautifully illustrated book, highly acclaimed author, Margaret Silf takes the reader through seven cityscapes, and shows how we can encounter the spiritual wherever we are - on a city street, on a train, in a library, in the workplace, in cafes, shops and parks. All are fruitful areas for self-discovery, inviting us to connect with the mystery of God in our lives. This inspirational volume will be returned to time and again as readers discover the divine in the bustle of the city streets.
