God Moments: by Andy Otto
Unexpected Encounters in the Ordinary
Reviewed by Fiona Hammond
Today I discovered a wonderful set of resources on Ignatian spirituality. If I told you that this discovery was prompted by my “Oh that’s pretty” response to the cover of this book, you’ll know just where my priorities lie…but it did lead me into a wonderful rabbit hole of finds on this rich and rewarding tradition within Christian Spirituality. Andy Otto encourages readers to practice feeling God’s gaze on us in the everyday moments of life, and notes that God takes on flesh in the various experiences and people around us. He writes with the Ignatian Spiritual understanding that the Divine presence is not limited to one thing to the exclusion of others. Or as Otto puts it: "A church does not contain God more than a field of corn. A priest is not more holy than a single mother. God is uncontained and unconfined." The challenge is for every person to actively practice finding God’s part in the everyday.
Check out Andy Otto's blog for some great resources. I particularly recommend the ideas for praying with young people. https://godinallthings.com/author/andyotto/
