I've been using "God In All Things" as a starting point for my prayer and meditation for a few months now. It's been a huge help in getting me started thinking and journaling. I've found "The Grace I Seek" (Morning & Bedtime meditations) series to be a great way to bookend my day to ask for God's asistance in the morning and then, in the evening, review where He has led me during the day. It's been a blessing. Thanks, Andy.
God IS in ALL things
Just listened to your episode "Doing" for a Cause. Think you hit the nail on the head. My cousin and her husband walk in the CF walk in their town (one of his kids has CF). Other family members participate in the walk. They could choose to give money instead of walking. But, I think they feel a togetherness because they walk together. Some of my little cousins help set up raffles, man refreshment booths, and participate in ways other than walking. It all comes together.
Ignation meditations underscored by beautiful music. Moving, thought-provoking, well written & spoken. The perfect addition to my growing Catholic podcast subscription list.
