The Australian scenery, lifestyle and rhythm of the seasons offer rich opportunities to acknowledge God's presence in our journey in this vast and ancient land. Be Still Awhile Along the Track is a resource to help us touch the sacred in our lives. It is a resource to help us reflect on our lives and review how we are responding to God's invitation to life to the full. Be Still Awhile Along the Track is designed to be used first thing in the morning and at the closing of each day. It offers brief reflections to begin the day, using images, thoughts and insights from an Australian perspective.It also includes short scripture readings, evening prayers and adaily question for reflection for use at a time of your own choosing during the day. Taking these few moments of prayer and reflection at the beginning and end of each day can transform the way we think, the way we greet and work with others, the way we appreciate the gift of Creation. Beginning our day with these few moments of prayer and reflection can help us to rejoice in God in whom we live and move and have our being.
