What if we are grazing past the sacred every day and not realizing it?
We may be the most connected culture in history, but we are vastly becoming the most disconnected from the awareness of God's presence. Waking Up Slowly is author Dave Burchett's challenge to live "in the moment" to find everyday joys we miss in disconnected busyness.
What moments of joy are we missing as we start at our screens? What performance idols are destroying our ability to appreciate God's gifts?
Dave Burchett sets out on a journey to discover how life might look differently if he awoke each morning consciously looking for the easy to miss "postcards from God." Waking Up Slowly is an intimate, warm, and touching story of learning how to more fully appreciate living in the moment. Through his discovery, the author finds regular reminders of daily joys from his Labrador pal, Maggie.
Waking Up Slowly challenges the reader to recognize, appreciate, and celebrate the ways that God reveals himself daily. Through regular people, everyday situations, cuddly creatures, and stunning nature, God’s presence is real and discoverable. We just need to wake up to it.
