Slowing Time / Seeing the Sacred Outside Your Kitchen Door (Mahany)
Barbara Mahany believes the sacred is all around, within fingers reach here to be gathered, culled, collected, through the simple yet complex art of paying attention, of savoring the moment, of cultivating stillness. Making room for the God and illuminating the Godly specks in the everyday. Noticing the seen, revealing the unseen, and pinpointing the divine in both.
The book sifts through the terrain of three particular landscapes where the author most often encounters the stirrings of the Divine: under heavens dome; on the front lines of the homefront; and in the unspooling of the seasons. The most essential prayer, often, is the life closely examined, held up to the light.
By probing deeply the nooks and crannies of the home-front, the author points out that the reader need not venture far to find what matters most. And the questions stirred will linger, long after the page is turned.
