Whispers of Presence is a collection of daily reflections on spiritual aspects of life. Author Christine Mallouhi dips into the Celts love of nature, the Monastics’ daily rhythms, along with a sprinkling of Sufi love sayings. She gathers mentors to join with her own gentle reflections from a life, lived in both the West and the Middle East, to help us walk this sacred rhythm into daily life.
These readings are thresholds to foster prayer and awareness that opens to the Presence of God in a fractured day. The central theme of shared love and longing for God brings healing to disparate communities in a frenetic world and can change how we live. They are offered as a gateway into developing a practice of do-able deliberate contemplative prayer stops, in busy days, to hear whispers of the God who is always present.
