Suggested Spiritual Growth Reading for May

Ronald Rolheiser, this year’s featured Gerald May Speaker at Shalem Institute, is a prolific writer on the subject of Christian discipleship. If you enjoyed his book The Holy Longing, then this follow-up book, Sacred Fire, will be equally compelling. Following Rilke’s suggestion to “Live the questions now,” Rolheiser guides the seeker toward deeper maturity through a closer relationship with God. He describes how we can grow through the different seasons of our lives to welcome a stronger and deeper spirituality, thanks to the abundant invitations from God to draw near. Copies of Sacred Fire may be found on the information table at the back of the church. Simply read and return.
