Everyday Spirituality

Resources for Living a Life of Hope, Peace and Meaning

"Everyday Spirituality is exactly what the title says – an invitation to honor ordinary experiences as holy ground. We don’t have to go to on a retreat or sign up for spirituality lessons – we can stay where we are and sense divine presence in what we do each day. Hazelwood’s writing is so conversational that at times I started talking to him even though he wasn’t in the room. He weaves together insights from scripture and theology with his own experiences and stories he has received from others. He does this so naturally we hardly notice -- we simply travel with him and go happily. Hazelwood writes with the heart of a pastor and a mystic. Like the poet Mary Oliver he isn’t afraid to say, “I don’t know exactly what a prayer is/I do know how to pay attention…” This book will help every reader pay attention, too."
