Saying grace at mealtimes is a time-honored tradition for many families and a newfound source of spiritual connection for others. Whether you are a master at giving the blessing or fairly new at this sacred art, Graces will bring inspiration to your meals and special gatherings.
Seeing the need for such inspiration at her family's table, June Cotner compiled a notebook of poems, prayers, and songs that she solicited from friends, poets, family members, and ministers. She has turned her family's well-worn notebook into this elegantly packaged edition, which will complement your finest table setting.
Arranged by thirteen themes, this beautiful giftbook contains 133 poems, prayers, songs, invocations, and salutations that span the centuries and draw from many traditions. Includes work by Robert Browning, Walt Whitman, Starhawk, Chief Seattle, Helen Keller, Kahlil Gibran, Saint Francis of Assisi and Albert Schweitzer. From prayers at mealtime and special holiday graces to a Gaelic Blessing, or an ancient Chinese Prayer, Graces offers fitting words for every occasion.
