Spiritual Voices

Last year I was invited to contribute to a new book on faith, love, and mysticism, titled Spiritual Voices. The book takes the reader on a journey of Spirit that follows twelve individuals who share their deeper reflections on faith and what it is to be human in our world. Through their faithful walking, we glimpse a search for deeper meaning—in and through the mystery that surrounds us all.

The book was a project of the Thomas Merton Centre, an organization established “to speak to those in the corporate and business world who didn’t have an opportunity for any kind of spiritual or faith development.”

Each chapter opens with an illustration of the chapter’s author, created by S. Brooke Anderson, seen here with the original illustrations on display.

“The point of the project is a simple one,” said Higgins. “There is a rich array in the spiritual landscape of voices and personalities. We just dropped one little pebble into a large ocean, or mosaic, of meaning.”

Spiritual Voices is available from Amazon worldwide, and at selected bookstores.
