About-

When you think of God, what images come to mind? Do you see God in others? Do you acknowledge God’s presence in each circumstance and situation of your everyday life, no matter how trivial? How you conceive God determines how you experience God. As contemporary author Frederick Buechner advises, “Listen to your life. Listen to what happens to you, because it is through what happens to you that God speaks.”

While spiritual life of some kind is necessary for psychological health, psychotherapist Thomas Moore indicates in Care of the Soul that excessive or ungrounded spirituality can be dangerous, leading to compulsive and even violent behavior. It is better for religious seekers to embrace a religious practice that has been tested and refined over time than to experiment solo or by joining some exotic new sect. In this book, Dr. Vande Kappelle explores the richness of Catholic and Protestant spiritual traditions and the power of intuition and imagination to chart an approach to the sacred that is simple, practical, and effective.

Holistic religion requires three elements in creative tension: a historical or institutional element, a mystical or emotional element, and an intellectual or scientific element. If you want to know what this means and how it is accomplished, read this book. Designed as a study guide for group or individual use, In the Potter’s Workshop will challenge and inspire you to experience God in ways that are sustainable and transformative.
