Publishers Weekly, 1998-02-09 In the tumult of everyday life, simple pleasures are often forgotten or lost in the frantic race to keep up with the tasks we have set for ourselves. Meyers, a regular commentator for NPR and senior minister of the Mayflower Congregational Church in Oklahoma City, meditates on ways to contemplate the holy moments or events we experience in our lives. Meyers touches on topics such as conversation, reading books, writing letters, parenting children and owning pets as he searches to locate the holy in life. From his reflections, Meyers concludes: "Simple pleasures are those moments when life is experienced rather than consumed, and moments are sacramental when the transcendent infuses the ordinary. But it doesn't arrive like a catered meal driven to the door... the best things in the world are freely GIVEN to those who have freely CHOSEN well." Meyers's short meditations are charming and eloquent explorations into the holiness of ordinary life. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
