Directions of Folding
Most of us tend to live our lives day to day. We approach this shared journey as a linear progression from beginning to end—from our first steps and words to our last breath and touch. Still, there are those spaces in time when we perceive life to be more than today—more than just a string of all our yesterdays. We become profoundly aware of a vertical axis intersecting the plane of our existence. Below the surface and beyond the horizon we become profoundly aware of the sacred and the eternal. The author explores these realms in this collection.
Dr. Browne’s takes the reader on an inspirational journey pf prose. Written in her style of free verse poems—like “I miss holding hands” reminds us that man’s walk with God is not always easy, but if we stay faithful it will always be beautiful. Heather captures the essence of Sin, Baptism, Prayer, Holy Communion, Tithing, Worship, Faith and Creation; giving the reader an insight of what it means to be Christian in today’s ever-changing world. She even offers up some inspiring words concerning Marriage and Death.
This book would be a great addition to any Church library or reading list as there is something for everyone, whether they are seeking answers, or looking to strengthen their Walk with God.
