Finding our Way Again: The Return of the Ancient Practices
‘Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.’
Most of us suffer from spiritual disorientation. Our souls are untended. And in this fragmented world, a soul left untended quickly loses direction. It forgets itself and becomes an insubstantial thing, disoriented and unavailable to the truth. And neither scientific secularism nor religious fundamentalism nor vague spiritualities have been able to offer any real answers.
That’s why a growing number of Christians are turning to early spiritual practices as a means of tending their souls. For centuries, believers have eagerly submitted to disciplines such as fixed-hour prayer, fasting, sacred meals, observing the Sabbath, or pilgrimage to create everyday sacredness, a spiritual rhythm for living within the well-worn grooves of a workaday life.
In Finding Our Way Again, Brian McLaren serves as guide to a wide variety of these disciplines, showing how they form character, awaken us to life, and help us to experience God, and each other, in new and fresh ways.
