When was the last time you paused to drink in the colors of the changing leaves of autumn? Fall is a time of renewed activity. While our schedules fill up, we remain in constant motion. We have to make space in our schedules for time to reflect on our faith or it will get lost in the din.
These weekly meditations help us reconnect with autumn, a season that reminds us of the struggles we all experience and the virtues we all need to work on.
The third in a series of four seasonal meditations books, Autumn Meditations explores religious topics in the context of modern-day life. The twelve reflections in this book follow the rhythms of the autumn season, helping you rediscover the beauty of a balanced, God-centered life.
