12 STEP APPROACH TO THE SUNDAY READINGS

in
$15.95

Building upon his best-selling A 12-Step Approach to the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, Father Harbaugh now applies his extensive recovery wisdom to crafting insightful meditations based upon the weekend scriptural readings of the Common Lectionary. Readers familiar with the 12-Steps can now more effectively employ the readings they encounter at Sunday worship to consciously connect with their higher power. People of prayer that may not be familiar with the 12-Steps will surely benefit by this fresh and enlightening perspective. The 12-Step flavor is distinctly down-to-earth and remarkably makes accessible biblical history and theological concepts that often seem ethereal. Harbaugh's sense of humor enlivens even the most abstruse passage. A 12-Step Approach to the Sunday Readings will be welcomed by people who have been working any of several 12-Step programs and are interested in continuing and broadening their growth. It will also appeal to persons interested in the Spiritual Exercises or who make weekend retreats, and RCIA program directors who are looking for a fresh slant on spirituality.

365 DAYS OF PRAISE

in
$14.95

Allow God's infinite love to flow into your heart as you praise His holy name.
This book, through the grace of God and the power of the Holy Spirit, will be hope where there is little to no hope.

To give us His love when there is no love.
To be the light of Christ in a world that often has darkness.
To be a peacemaker where there is no peace.
To give us the courage to forgive others and ourselves.

We were chosen to make a difference in this world. To build up God's kingdom. It is our purpose. As you reflect upon these meditations, know that God is calling you to love His people.

Will you say yes to this calling? Say yes to the Holy Spirit? You will never be sorry! You will praise God with gratitude forever and ever!

Hallelujah!

365 Days of Praise is a book of meditation that will get us closer to God. Praise is an important component of building our relationship with God. We are told in Psalm 150:6, "Let everything that has breath give praise to the Lord."

What is praise? It is giving glory to God for who He is. When we acknowledge that He is our Savior, our redeemer, healer, the God of hope, truth, and love, it helps us get in His presence. Our heart and soul begin to be joyous and find peace that "passes all understanding."

Praise is the greatest form of prayer. Jesus taught us praise by teaching us to say, "Our father who art in heaven, hallowed by thy name."

Each day as you read 365 Days of Praise you will reflect upon how much God loves us, how He wants to heal us, and how praise is an important element of that healing.
