Publisher's Description

This classic book of meditations is an eloquent celebration of the spirituality of everyday objects and activities. Daily routines such as making the bed, reading the newspaper, sweeping the floor, and cooking supper are illuminated by examining their relationship to the Divine. Beginning with the first stirrings of consciousness in the morning, passing through the ordinary tasks of a day at home, and ending with bedtime benediction, Gunilla Norris gently reminds us that nothing is too common to speak to us. In the tradition of lectio divina, each meditation's subject is closely, contemplatively examined. Being Home is not only a beautiful collection of household meditations but also an important essay on how and why we should work toward simplicity-materially, socially, and spiritually. The meditations are complemented by Greta Sibley's small photographs of familiar objects, which both mirror and interpret the text. †
