Skinner House Publishing has recently released a new prayer book, entitled Conversations With The Sacred, Edited by Manish Mishra-Marzetti and Jennifer Kelleher with contributions from dozens of UU ministers. Goodreads describes the book this way:
“Bringing alive the heartfelt words and artwork contributed by creators diverse in spiritual perspective and identity, Conversations with the Sacred is a moving testimony to the power of prayer. Prayers of love, lamentation, justice, inspiration, and transcendence—all are here, thoughtfully selected by editors Manish Mishra-Marzetti and Jennifer Kelleher. Whatever your relationship to prayer, whether it comes naturally, you have a complicated history with it, or have never prayed before, Conversations with the Sacred is a powerful and accessible resource for anyone looking to explore or deepen a spiritual practice of reflection or prayer.”
Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray, the UUA president says in the forward of the book that “Spiritual practices teach us the discipline of listening, of inter-dependence, of loving, of letting go. These are the skills we need to grow in wisdom and kindness. I am grateful to Manish Mishra-Marzetti and Jennifer Kelleher for the gift of this book. Thank you, Manish and Jennifer, for bringing it into being, and thank you to all the contributors. It is my hope that as a religious tradition, we can rediscover the wisdom, the power, and the gifts that are present in prayer. It offers a fullness and humility essential for the maturity of our faith.”
If you are interested in purchasing this book, you can find it available on kindle from Amazon or in print from Skinner House Publishing.
