Intimate Nearness of God (Daily Reflection Book)

$6.00

LCWR presents a new book, The Intimate Nearness of God: A Reflective Journal Exploring Contemplation and Transformation. The phrase, “intimate nearness of God,” comes from the keynote address by Pat Farrell, OSF at the 2016 LCWR assembly where she spoke of the contemplative impulse that has been stirring in and among women religious for some time. She noted that this contemplative focus is positioning religious to respond to a future impossible to anticipate. She posited that “we are being led in this direction for the sake of the church and the world.”

The Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) presents a new book, Praying in These Emergent Times, a reflective resource for our spiritual journey. The cosmology and theologies that have influenced us for centuries had us reflecting on one aspect of God – God as eternal, changeless, timeless, abiding. The new cosmology is helping us comprehend emerging concepts of God as also unfolding, relational, and not outside of time and space but within its very fabric.

Navigating the Shifts

LCWR presents a new book, Navigating the Shifts, a resource for reflecting on how we may best live in a world in flux. In her presidential address to the LCWR 2012 assembly, Sister Pat Farrell, OSF noted that we need not be fearful of "the cataclysmic movements of change swirling around us" and suggested how we might navigate these tumultuous times with trust and a spirit of adventure.
