Item Description...
Overview
Have you ever noticed how sunflowers track with the sunlight throughout the summer? That's not unusual, explains Brent Bill. All of God's creation moves toward the Light - flowers, trees, even human beings. Light sets a Midwestern sunset apart from a western desert sunset, a Goya portrait from a John Singer Sargent portrait, a joyful spirit from a mournful one. Light is all around - and within - us. We can't live without it. This profound little book invites readers to see both their inner and outer lives with spiritual "eyes." To "mind the light" is a Quaker practice of learning to see God's light both around and inside us. Depending on its strength, tone, and slant - light changes how we perceive the world and other people. Depending on how we respond to it, illumination can help us grow in appreciation of the soulful things of life. Minding the Light invites readers of all backgrounds to explore the connectedness between inner vision and outer perception, between the life of the soul and the everyday life before us.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
a beautiful meditation on the importance of light  Oct 27, 2006
Reminding us that "All God's creatures move toward the light--flowers, trees, people," Quaker minister and writer Brent Bill muses on the importance of light, both within and beyond us. In his uniquely gentle--and often humorous--style, Bill plumbs the rich outpourings of God's commandment, "let there be light." He is struck by the stunning light in a painting by Chardin, by the varieties of seasonal light, by the light that plays upon his wife's hair, by the light he encounters in those he loves. He also encourages us to plumb those outpourings through "illuminating moments" that invite us to reflect on creation, ourselves, each other, and God.
 
What a gem  Oct 25, 2006
This is a wonderful read! Like Bill's earlier title, Holy Silence, Mind the Light is a brilliant primer in practical spirituality. Bill gently leads the reader through Quaker practice in a way that's open and inviting. He intersperses the chapters with "Illuminating Moments" that are useful exercises tied to the text. The subtitle sums up the books intent for me - learning to see with spiritual eyes.
