Noticing the Sacred in Everyday Life
A Webinar Presentation
Inspired by the ancient form of prayer practiced by the Celtic people, Beth Richardson offers a multitude of short prayers—blessings—that embrace every aspect of daily life.
A sense of joy about ordinary moments of the day pervades her book, Christ Beside Me, Christ With Me. Many of the blessings came to Richardson during one of her daily activities—walking her dogs. As she welcomed the day, she thought about celebrations, challenges, and other situations people she loved were facing.
This webinar will:
- Highlight Beth's process of writing blessings during those ordinary moments of her life
- Elaborate on how we all can notice and rejoice in those moments of blessing in our own everyday lives
- Invite you to write your own blessing and share it as a comment
