LifeIsAGift219x346By Paraclete Press

Paraclete Press incorporated in 1983. They state, “Although Benedictine spirituality is at the heart of all we do, we are an ecumenical publisher.” Readers that enjoy Christian writing, ancient and contemporary, will find enjoyment in this small book.

There are quotes from Meister Eckhart and Albert Einstein, and poems by William Shakespeare. There is even a short story by Louisa May Alcott. Readers are provided prompts to list their blessings and include their own thoughts on thanksgiving.

 

“Be like the sun for grace and mercy. Be like the night to cover others’ faults. Be like running water for generosity. Be like death for rage and anger. Be like the Earth for modesty. Appear as you are. Be as you appear.” Rumi
