Item Description...
Overview
Becca Stevens is an Episcopal Priest and founder of Magdalene and Thistle Farms. Sanctuary, is about some unexpected places where she has encountered God - a trail in the Andes, her son's bathtub, a Kroger parking lot. There are 50 meditations, each firmly rooted in an apparently ordinary moment or place, which illuminate the ways God works, surprising us, shocking us, confronting us, comforting and challenging us.

Publishers Description

"Sanctuary" is about some unlikely and unexpected places where Becca Stevens has encountered God a trail in the Andes, her son s bathtub, Dorothy Day s Hospitality House, the Kroger parking lot. "Sanctuary" was nominated by "Christianity Today" as best spirituality book of 2005. I have never read a more direct and moving set of meditations. Becca Stevens has the most extraordinary gift for finding the ineffable in our ordinary old real world, and for making us feel it, too. -Lee Smith, author of "The Last Girls"

Becca Stevens meditations imagine an entire world and our part in it, as a place where God dwells. Instead of the tired effort of searching for God, she reminds us, like Francis Thompson s Hound of Heaven, that God can find us wherever we are. -Charles Strobel, Founding Director, Campus for Human Development

Becca Stevens is my kind of preacher woman. Her ministry extends far beyond the walls of St. Augustine s Chapel. Her words bring to life the miracles that abound in the mundane. -Marshall Chapman, author of "Goodbye, Little Rock and Roller"

Sanctuary can be found in Becca Stevens s elegant, exquisite, earnest pages. -Alice Randall, author of The Wind Done Gone Becca Stevens is an Episcopal priest at St. Augustine s Chapel on the Vanderbilt University campus. She is the founder of Magdalene, a residential community for women with a criminal history of prostitution and drug abuse, and the author of "Hither & Yon: A Travel Guide for the Spiritual Journey, "coming in September 2007. Meet Becca Stevens in this video interview about her life, faith andexperience with the women of Magdalene House."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
sanctuary describes finding the essence of life  Nov 1, 2006
I found this book at the bookstore in my local cathedral.It fit the bill, I wanted to read short, meaningful "sound bites" that would affirm beauty, powerful relationships with God and the sacred of humanness. Little did I realize this book does that and more. I am buying copies for my friends and plan on placing it at my husbands bedside table for last minute late night reading.Our marriage can only benefit!

 
Sanctuary-Becca Stevens  Jan 30, 2006
This book is a gentle reminder that God can be found anywhere we are and that often it is in the most unorthodox places. Once many years ago I had the oppurtunity to speak with Becca in an effort to touch and feel a "real" loving God instead of the one I had come to fear in traditional Sanctuaries and bible of my childhood. Her advice, "Just read the red." Here again she is saying, find and let God love you where you are, as you are, and sometimes inspite of your frustrations with the way everthing seems to be, for there is where Sanctuary and peace meet.
