Reading: The Practice of the Presence of God

The Practice of the Presence of God; Brother Lawrence

Translated by E.M. Blaiklock

 

Well I finally finished a book. Admittedly I am reading 3 at once but this has taken much longer than I anticipated. This book was a gift from my Uncle back in England. The book is a collection of recorded conversations & letters from a 17th century lay monk in France. While it was a little though to get through at times, it gave me tired head at points, it is an excellent book. There is some very relevant guidance in it beginning in the foreword by Jennifer Rees Larcombe & going on all through the book.

 

The concept of the book is one I am familiar with, living your life in permanent prayer, of communion with God. However it is something I struggle greatly to put into practice. If nothing else the book woke me up to that a little & has helped me to try & remember to turn my hear to God more often (especially at work).

 

If you are a believer I would encourage you to pick up a copy & work through it, maybe try to be a little more focused that I was J

 

“There is not in the world a way of life more sweet, nor more delightful than continual converse with God. Those only who practice it, and savour it, can understand it”
