Publisher's Summary

Small Graces is a journey into the sacred moments that illuminate our everyday lives. In 20 elegant pieces, writer, sculptor, and theologian Kent Nerburn celebrates the daily rituals that reveal our deeper truths. Through the exploration of simple acts, Small Graces reminds us to chart a course each day that nourishes the soul, honors the body, and engages the mind. Small Graces asks us to observe life's quiet rhythms, the subtle shifts in perception and changes in light, the warm comfort of family voices; to feel the blessing of birdsong, the solitude of a falling leaf, the echo of footfall in snow-covered woods. By inviting us to recognize the hidden power of the ordinary, Small Graces reveals the mystical alchemy of the mundane made profound by the artistry of a well-lived life.

An Oasis of Peace

I listened to this a long time ago. I listened again today. My husband is turned in to the news of the travesty in Ukraine every waking hour. I put in my ear buds and am instantly taken to a more peaceful place by Kent Newborn's voice and words. I need to listen to this every week. This is a time when we all need to accept the small graces we are given as often as possible.
