Sanctuary of the Soul book release party
Saturday, September 10, 6:30-9 pm
“At the very heart of God is the passionate disposition to be in loving fellowship with you. . . . From the human side of this equation it is meditative prayer that ushers us into this divine-human fellowship.” Richard Foster, Sanctuary of the Soul
Richard Foster, bestselling author and founder of Renovaré, writes these words as one who has experienced what they describe. In his new book, Sanctuary of the Soul, he will beautifully guide you on this transformational Way toward deeper fellowship with God.
Weaving together quotes and stories from the lives of mothers and fathers of the faith as well as powerful encounters with God from his own life, Foster describes the riches of quieting your mind and heart in order to listen to and obey God more closely. The journey into meditative prayer is not easy, but it is essential. And, as Foster shows, it's possible, even in the midst of the noisy, often chaotic world we live in.
At perhaps his clearest, most practical best, Foster also provides the biblical teaching and step-by-step help you need to begin this prayer practice for yourself. Your soul can become a sanctuary where you fellowship with the very God of the universe, who knows you and loves you deeply.
Learn more about Sanctuary of the Soul at Campbell UCC's book release party, Sept. 10 at 6:30 pm in the Fireside Room. You will participate in a conference call with Richard Foster, enjoy fellowship with others on Jesus’ Way, and practice this life-changing form of prayer together.
