Now It Springs Up: Spiritual Insights for Everyday by Carol Duerksen, Michele Hershberger, Laurie Oswald Robinson, Willowspring Downs, 2007.
Three women have teamed together to offer fresh engaging reflections on daily scripture readings that follow the rhythms of the Christian year. In addition to thought-provoking biblical meditations, each day's entry includes an invitation to prayer and to action.
Each day's meditation begins with scripture. Then drawing upon the best of biblical scholarship and their own close reading of the text, the writers open up the passages in a section titled 'pondering on the way.' Following the scripture reading and meditation is a section titled 'praying and walking in the world,' giving questions and ideas to think about to apply it to our lives today as well as prayer suggestions. Some of the day's readings were written specifically for children and families in mind and are indicated as thus.
