Faces of God

by Lenore and Gordon De Pree

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
In the past few years a restlessness has taken hold of many of us. We have felt a hunger to reach out beyond the old bounds of denominationalism and doctrine, a longing to know what it is that binds us not only to those whose faith is expressed like ours, but to all people. Out of this restlessness new words have grown, which have deep significance. These words, Faces of God, present a whole new life concept. They have made it possible for us to discover a deep melding of the sacred and secular – in fact, they have made all of life so filled with the presence of God that there is no ungodly place. They make it possible to look into the face of every person and see the wonder of life, the greatest miracle. Try these words yourself, today. Look into the face of every person you meet with a consciousness that he or she is a face of God. You may be amazed at the things that happen!

All the while, they have engaged deeply with the people and the cultures around them, listening, learning and creating as they went.
