About-

Sometimes more, sometimes less, Christians find in their liturgy the shaping of their spirit. We have much to ponder: the words and gestures we make at prayer together, the texts of scripture, the writings of those who lived in this house of the church before us.

This book explores these abundant sources in brief reflections that become dialogues with the reader. Gail Ramshaw unfolds a liturgical spirituality, standing with us - the not-yet-baptized and the long-since-baptized - beside our baptism font. It is a good place to be.

For personal reflection or for group discussion, Gail Ramshaw's essays gather round them scripture texts, the wisdom of our tradition, provocative questions, and simple prayers.
