Are you taking your tablet/phone/laptop on vacation? If you are, you can sit by the lake or on the beach and give yourself your annual spiritual. We recommend three online retreats from Good Ground Press that will refresh your soul. Try any one of them.

•  Holy Women, Full of Grace
•  Why Not Soar?
•  The Our Father

You actually don’t need your electronics for these retreats. They can be printed out and shared with others. There are more retreat options on our home page at goodgroundpress.com. Just click on online retreats at the right-hand top of the page.
 May your summer bring you closer to God and to the self you want to be. May your family and friends bring you strength and joy.

An Attitude of Gratitude

5 Mar

Tulips are peeking through the snow. Bushes are budding. Spring is on its way. We are on the road to Easter both in 2018 and in our own life’s journey. What’s not to be thankful for?

If you need a mid-lent pick-me-up, go to our online retreats and “Why Not Soar?

Poem of the Week

17 Aug

This is a prayer-poem written by a woman mystic of the 1200s, Mechtildde of Magdeburg, from the book Praying With The Women Mystics by Mary T. Malone (Columba Press, 2013).

Why Not Soar?

You have the wings of longing.
You know the pull of hope.
You feel the flowing of desire.

So why not soar?

Fish cannot drown in water.
Birds cannot sink in air.
You cannot fall from my sight.

So why not soar?

Woman, I have adorned you.
Woman, I have delighted in you.
Woman, I have made my home in you.

So why not soar?

Be as the dove, I soar in her.
Lighten your heart, I soar in you.
Uplift your being, be an Easter song.

Why not soar?
