Following Our Ultimate Desire


by L. Roger Owens

In his new book, Everyday Contemplative: The Way of Prayerful Living, Roger Owens invites us to pay attention to our longings and desires this week. In this brief exercise, he offers scripture, questions for reflection, and a journal prompt so that we might listen for signs of our deepening longing for God.

Find a comfortable and quiet place as you prepare to listen and to journal.
