Book Shop News: Hail and Farewell
As we prepare to bid Godspeed to the Rev. Lisa Wiens Heinsohn, we learn that she has left us another gift in introducing us to the writing of her brother Steve, currently a Covenant pastor in Maple Grove.

His recent book Beginnings: The First Seven Days of the Rest of Your Life speaks in a voice not unlike Lisa’s, thoughtful, easy to listen to, inviting us to enter Scripture. His book of stories is framed by the story of Creation, which he sees as “rich and velvety, layered with beauty and bursting with life,” where the seven days show “a pattern that will shape the endlessly unfolding creation of our actual lives.” Each chapter ends with questions for reflection and discussion about the transitions we each face, a spiritual practice to help our own becoming.

Another book whose author comes from the Covenant tradition is the bestselling Jesus
Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence, by Sarah Young, first published in 2004. It’s a 365-day devotional, written as if Jesus were speaking to each of us in the first person, emphasizing the experience of living daily in the presence of Christ.

These are only two of the many voices that may help us find our own spiritual language; the Book Shop offers many others as well. Come and see…
