Hither & Yon: A Travel Guide For The Spiritual Journey

Sinopse

A Place Called Hither and Yon - Hither and yon is a mysterious place of communion with God. It is the destination to which we are headed and the circuitous path itself. For the trip there are some things we should pack and some things we should leave behind. There are road signs to read and a language to cultivate. There are ways to walk, work, and pray. There are customs and practices that all respectful travelers need to observe. Hither and yon is the place that allows us to enter territories we never dreamed of in the world and in our hearts. We are already on the journey. The book is written to encourage all of us to keep walking. The podcast contains excerpts from each chapter of the book - a poem, a story, helpful hints, and a prayer. Magdalene and Thistle Farms are mentioned throughout the book - Magdalene House is a two-year residential community founded in Nashville, Tennessee in 1997 for women with a history of prostitution and drug addiction. Magdalene was founded not just to help a sub-culture of women, but to help change the culture itself. We stand in solidarity with women who are recovering from sexual abuse, violence, and life on the streets, and who have paid dearly for a culture that buys and sells women like commodities.  At no cost, we offer women a safe, disciplined, and compassionate community for two years, paid for by the gifts we receive from individuals and private grants. Magdalene stands as a witness to the truth that in the end, love is more powerful than all the forces that drive women to the streets.
