God in Every Day

Knowing God in Ordinary Life
  • By Deirdre Powell
Product Description
This book is intended as a guide to help each person in their prayer life. The book explores various images of God and how He may be found in everyday life. Reflections with suitable scripture references are provided. Some of the images of God are very familiar ones, such as God as Parent and God as Shepherd. However, other images of God are explored that may be less familiar to the reader, such as God as Chef (where we find God in food); God as Artist (where we find God in art); and God as Gardener (where we find God in the garden). The idea is to explore various images of God that are drawn from everyday life, in order to bring home the notion that God is present in the everyday.

For example, in the chapter that details finding God in Art (God as Artist), the reflections relate to God as artist (painter), musician and writer, and the examples of art, music and writing are drawn from everyday life. Specifically, the art work was available to view at the local art gallery (NGI) at the time of writing; the four pieces of music are easily accessible online, as are the two poems.

It is hoped that this book will aid the reader in their prayer life and help them to experience God in ordinary life by exploring usual and unusual images of God.

I was motivated to write this book because I really enjoyed compiling religious reflections (or "Thoughts for the Day") for the Catholic web site CI.Net ( I felt drawn to this type of writing, where I would write a series of reflections on a particular theme. I see this book as being utilized as a guide to daily prayer life - it is structured so that you can "dip in and out" of it each day and not lose the sense of flow/train of thought for the overall work. The book is written with two kinds of people in mind - (1) the person who wishes to strengthen their prayer life and (2) the person who is a "seeker" and is searching for meaning in everyday life.
