Publisher's Description

Whether he is at the airport, in a board room, at his son’s graduation, or trying to get his grass to grow, Tom Ehrich takes time to notice the presence of God.  In these 50 brief meditations, he explores the struggles of both heart and head. He asks many of the questions each of us asks on our journey with and toward God.

Each meditation begins with a scripture passage.  The author then looks back over the day, using that passage to think about--and help us  think about--how God wants us to live. His reflections are often more about asking good questions than finding the "right" answers. The five themes in the book are: Certainty Versus Uncertainty, Family and Community, Control Versus Freedom, Hope, and Journey to Faith.

"My aim is to help people experience God through the power of stories. Stories aren’t theories or theologies.  Stories are glimpses. The aim of stories isn’t to sway opinion or to recruit followers, but to encourage seeing. No story is complete in itself, no story speaks to every person, no story is free of ambiguity.  Jesus was a story-teller.

It is time we…. stepped forward as story-tellers in a troubled world, as servants and door-openers, as companions to the broken, as far more humble and uncertain than our creeds suggest us to be, more like pilgrims than experts." excerpt from the Introduction

A scripture index is included.
