When my oldest child was 6 years old or so,
she asked, “why do people fight in wars?”
By Author Joyce Rupp
Today I have been exploring this book with colleagues in pastoral care. Using cups dear to us, we have reflected upon the sorrows our cups hold, and then poured them out. We have made visual expressions of the blessings that have grown from those (or in spite of) sorrows. And then we filled our cup with symbols of things that clutter our spiritual life and keep our cup too full to receive the fullness of life offered to us. This book offers a useful guide for reconnecting with one’s spiritual life, whether it’s used in a group or private setting.
