Description

Using stories as diverse as that of the death of a polar bear at the London Zoo, aboriginal refugees of Darwin, Australia, and a munitions expert who becomes a professional safecracker, Anthony Gittins charts unexplored spiritual landscapes of the 21st century. The spiritual approach that identifies Gittins is a practical, down-to-earth way of connecting with God in the place you are -- and an avenue sturdy enough to endure for the long haul.For those who want to uncover a personal spirituality that adapts to the context of a particular culture and to the demands for justice, this book charts a new and unexplored path. In discussing the factors that will mark a spirituality for the future, Gittins blends a unique viewpoint of personal, pastoral, and global perspectives, elucidating for readers the importance of mission and evangelization in any authentic journey of the soul.A carefully woven tapestry of sociological and anthropological allegories and practical advice, Reading the Clouds is a spiritual travelogue for a changing world. Readers will come away with a vision of new possibilities and a renewed appetite for celebrating the living memory and mission of Jesus Christ.
