Simplicity: The freedom of letting go
Simplicity – The Freedom of Letting Go by Richard Rohr
St Francis’s ancient call to the simple life of freedom and happiness, as seen by America’s foremost Franciscan. Richard Rohr shows you how to:
Recognize your radical dependence on others
Understand why less is more
Break through to contemplation
Embrace a deeper spiritual freedom
“Rohr’s kind of contemplation is an adventure in the wilderness, letting God call me by name and take me to a deeper place of peace that the world cannot give.”
St. Anthony Messenger
Lent & Easter, The Inner Journey
A profound and intimate meditation on the human condition, In God’s Hands is the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent Book for 2015. Not only are we in God’s hands, says Desomond Tutu, our names are engraved on his palms. Throughout an often turbulent life, Archbishop Tutu has fought for justice and against oppression and prejudice. As we learn in this book, what has driven him forward is an unshakeable belief that human beings are created in the image of God and are infinitely valuable. Each one of us is a God-carrier, a tabernacle, a sanctuary of the Divine Trinity. God loves us not because we are loveable but because he first loved us. And this turns our values upside down. In this sense the Gospel is the most radical thing imaginable.
In this extremely moving book, Archbishop Tutu returns to that which is simple and profound after a life in which he has been involved in political, social and ethical issues that have seemed so very complex.
