Beginning June 1 one of the things I will be doing to strengthen my spiritual life is going through a 40-Day Journey with Howard Thurman.
If you want to join me order the book on amazon.com - it's available in hard copy or Kindle version.
If you do this and would like to connect with me and share your thoughts and spiritual discoveries during the process please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
During the process keep a spiritual journal. The book has an excellent introduction to spiritual journaling.
This devotional guide uses quotes from Thurman, Scripture readings, questions to ponder and meditate on, and suggested ways to pray.
Thurman (along with Thomas Merton and Henri Nouwen) is one of the deep, praying persons I continue to read who has influenced me over the years.
"Howard Thurman was an influential American author, philosopher, theologian, educator, and civil rights leader. Strongly influenced by his grandmother, a former slave, who raised him and a Quaker mystic under whom he studied, Thurman adopted a philosophy of activism rooted in faith, guided by spirit, and maintained in peace. Editor Donna Schaper selects forty inspiring passages from the works of this spiritual adviser to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to accompany readers on their own spiritual journeys."
