A Wayfarer's Guide to Bringing the Sacred Home

Front Cover
Baha'i Publishing Trust, 2002 - Religion - 231 pages
Feeling Disconnected? This new book reveals spiritual ties between self, family, and community. A Wayfarer's Guide describes a journey to fulfillment. Is spiritual development simply a personal matter, or can it translate into a better connection with our families and communities? In turn, how does the outside world act on us spiritually? Author Joseph Sheppherd answers these fundamentally important--but seldom asked--questions in A Wayfarer's Guide to Bringing the Sacred Home. The book explores issues that shape our lives and the lives of those around us: the vital role of personal transformation in spiritual growth, the importance of spiritual training in raising children, the divine purpose of marriage and family, and processes for building strong communities.
