Product Description

These are the prayers and wisdom of the Plain People--the Amish, Hutterites, and Mennonites. These religious communities pattern their lives after the New Testament; they live in rhythm with the seasons. The solid, simple words of this book's prayers reflect the quiet wisdom of these committed people, who care steadfastly for each other and their neighbors. Gently colorful painting reminiscent of folk art fill the pages of this book with warmth and delight.

Publisher's Description

In a remote canyon in northern New Mexico the early morning stillness is broken by voices chanting praises to the Lord. And thus begins the daily cycle in the Godcentered life and search of the Benedictine monks at the Monastery of Christ in the Desert.Seeking God is a monastic tapestry. The daily life of the monks is interwoven with the seasonal changes and celebrations and the candid words of the monks as they speak of their life their hopes and doubts their hardships fears and joys their prayer. Weaving this tapestry together are the hauntingly beautiful chants songs of praise and reverence that echo through the darkness before dawn throughout the day through the solemnity of Vespers in the evening and Compline at night. The majestic beauty of the environment captured in every season reflects a peace and tranquility that becomes an integral part of this monastic tapestry. The high red rock walls of the canyon where eagles fly cradle the valley whose stillness is broken only by the flowing waters of the Chama River and the winds that occasionally funnel through. Seeking God presents the ongoing process of the monastic way through the words and activities of these Benedictine monks as they move through the day and through the seasons in their search for God through prayer work study and song.

    As a school chaplain, I use this and several other books with girls in grades 4-6 as they plan simple worship. This is the book they most often choose. Its prayers are brief, often rhythmic or rhyming, and use both everyday language and lovely images.
