Listening for the Heartbeat of God: A Celtic Spirituality

by J. Phillip Newell

 

excerpt:

"If the Church's symbols and rituals pointed more clearly to the world as God's dwelling-place, we might then more fully rediscover that God's heartbeat can be heard in the whole of life and at the heart of our own lives, if we will only listen."
