Will Can I borrow this after you. I saw it at B and N and almost purchased it.

Sara Of course. It's a good one. I'm about 1/3 of the way through with "The Life You Save May be Your Own" too... awesome.

Sara I'd like to be Barbara Brown Taylor when I grow up. She's such a strong, thoughtful, gracious person with wonderful insights about living as a person of faith. This book is a collection of meditations on different "practices" - work, rest, prayer, community, physical labor, etc. It took me a long time to read because there was so much to digest and apply after each chapter.
