"Life is filled with entryways to the sacred: a conversation with a child, recovery from illness, and the gentle embrace of a close friend," Mary Beth Werdel wisely suggests in her book As Faith Matures: Beyond the Sunday God. She asserts that our deepest experiences can be simple or even life-altering. These moments are often doorways or an invitation into a more adult relationship with the God we encountered in our childhood or continue to encounter on Sundays.
In this book you will find real-life stories that unveil the sacred that lies hidden in each one of us. Like the individuals in these stories, if we still ourselves to listen, God will speak and deepen our relationship with the sacred -- namely our relationship to God and one another.
