Brief Description

What have you noticed today?

A life of faith is not something we float through on a cloud unaware; it is the mindful process of letting God change us, letting him develop our spiritual sensitivity toward the things of God and his kingdom.

In Faith Postures, Holly Sprink describes a two-fold journey—first, we must notice the kingdom of God. How is God’s kingdom arriving in our world right now? Are we proclaiming the difference it makes in our everyday lives? Second, we must allow Christ to realign us, to adjust and transform us into living examples of his wholeness. We take up residence in this kingdom by letting him redirect our attitudes toward life and health in him.

Sprink guides readers through a growing awareness of God’s desire for relationship and of the emotional and spiritual postures that enable us to learn to be still, to listen, and to be mindful—not only of ourselves, but of the One outside ourselves. In developing the art of noticing and practicing the postures of our faith in God, we begin to realize the spiritual health we yearn for.
