Book Review

Grounded: Finding God in the World by Diana Butler Bass. (HarperCollins; 2015 Paperback 360 pages.) This book does pretty much as the title suggests: the author speaks her experience of God present all around us, not just “above” us. She invites us to look around in our own life. Her chapters are titled water, dirt, sky, home, roots, neighbourhood. Diana shows how people are reflecting and discovering God, delighting in God, even, in the natural world and in Earth, our Common Home. People are coming to know a Creator-God; our faith enlarges and expands in getting to know that God. A line I liked: “My mother used to say some Christians are so heavenly-minded that they are no earthly good. Mom was right.” (p. 295)

Area Day in Fredericton, Monday, November 6th

Co-coordinators Anna Rowley and Marjorie Allison-Ross shared with us (Miramichi, Woodstock and Fredericton) the Presentation given by Associates at the Chapter in July.

Anna gave us all “speaking parts” throughout the presentation and helped us feel the excitement and energy coming from last summer’s event.

We are so fortunate to have these leaders among us, so fired with the spirit of Saint Marguerite and so generous in sparking our fire!

It should be noted that each religious order has their own way of forming novices, and even within the CNDs (my order: Congregation of Notre Dame), I have come to realize that each experience of the novitiate was different for each sister, so this is my experience, as of now.
