Spirituality often seems vague and individualistic, but so many of us are longing for new ways of finding the sacred in our lives in these difficult days. Drawing from her recent book Grounded and her upcoming book Grateful, award-winning author Diana Butler Bass invites us to rediscover holy connections and open our eyes with new awareness of the presence of God with us here and now. Diana Butler Bass addresses the question of real faith in the real world. She brings theology down to earth, issuing a summons to renewal that can be both faithful and contemporary, championing a connectedness to the actual context in which we live.
