Organic Prayer: A Spiritual Gardening Companion
Organic Prayer is a metaphor for a two-way process: we cultivate the earth around us, and the earth, in turn, cultivates our souls. Roth shares with us her experiences of working deeply in the red Ohio soil through meditations that help us enrich and care for our bonds with God, creation, and our neighbors on the planet.
Short chapters lead us from the spiritual foundation of preparing the soil to planting seeds and fending off the "pests" of depression and impatience that hinder the growth of the spirit. Each chapter ends with "spadework,"distinctive prayer exercises that help each meditation sink in more deeply.
