Praying – by Mary Oliver

It doesn't have to be
the blue iris, it could be
weeds in a vacant lot, or a few
small stones; just
pay attention, then patch

a few words together and don't try
to make them elaborate, this isn't
a contest but the doorway

into thanks, and a silence in which
another voice may speak.

"The Living Diet - A Christian Journey to Joyful Eating" by Martha Tatarnic.

Vast amounts of money are channeled into telling us that the secret to health and weight loss can be unlocked if we purchase the right product or adopt the correct discipline. This is NOT another one of those books. It is not a dieting book or a spiritual companion to a weight loss program. It IS the author's journey and spiritual insights on this issue that go far beyond weight loss. Join us in reading it or just come along to hear and participate in the discussions.
