Spirituality for the Rest of Us
Becoming an Ordinary Mystic: Spirituality for the Rest of Us
WHO: Albert Haase, chaplain at Cedarbrake Retreat Center near Austin, Texas.
HE SAYS: “I’ve discovered mysticism is more commonplace than I originally thought. It is living with sensitivity to the divine presence and responding to God’s ardent longing and enthusiastic invitation to a deeper relationship in this very moment.”
THE BIG IDEA: God invites us to notice the extraordinary in the ordinary, the sacred in the secular and the mystical in the mundane—to become an ordinary mystic.
This book offers a daily path to cultivating a life with God in which we draw close, listen and respond. The author explores the importance of being self-aware, walking by faith, challenging the ego, responding to God, living mindfully, and listening to God.
