The Heartbeat of God

Finding the Sacred in the Middle of Everything
$15.99
($21.99)

Insights from a pioneering leader in world religion, on the intersections of the sacred & the secular.

"As Christians--indeed as people of faith of any tradition--we are called to tend to the needs of the least among us. Our response to them must be the response of faith. God gives us a new heart to do this work, and every time we gather to do it, God offers a pacemaker jolt to tweak our heart's rhythm. The challenge is this: will our hearts respond with a strengthened beat, in tune with God's own heartbeat, sending more life out into the world?"
--from the Introduction

Explore our connections--as human beings with each other, as one nation with all other nations, as the human species with the whole of our environment--through the lens of faith. Katharine Jefferts Schori, presiding bishop of The Episcopal Church, examines these connections as she looks at the intersections of faith with the major issues of our day:

  • How does faith speak to poverty, climate change, the economy, health care, and what is the faith response?
  • How can believers from many faith traditions find common ground while honoring the Divine, serving one another, and creating deeper community?
  • How do we best use the resources of faith to connect us to the hearts of our
    neighbors and to the heart of God?
