Product DescriptionIn Searching for Balance Sr. Joan Chittister applies the teachings of St. Benedict to "illustrate how a simple, sacred rhythm of prayer, work and ordinary living signifies God's presence everywhere and in everyone, so we may all be brought together to everlasting life". We may question why things happen to us but Chittister suggests that that is life and what we should be looking at is how we handle these occurrences spiritually. "It is the way we deal with the dark and difficult moments that makes all the difference in how they affect us in the long run". Being a Benedictine nun, Chittister is familiar with The Rule of St. Benedict which she suggests as a way to deal with life and the things that happen in life that challenge us all the while remembering that, as St Benedict emphasized, God is with us at all times. Topics are included in the pamphlet all moving toward the purpose of finding hope in life through Benedict's teaching about humility. Questions are included in the back to encourage deeper thought and meditation on problems and solutions along with other suggested readings.
