Is designed to be used by anyone who loves to read and wants to retain the pearls of wisdom they receive from this pursuit. Through literature, you have the opportunity to encounter people, places and experiences that enrich your life and deepen your capacity for empathy, but so often these can slip away in the shuffle of day-to-day life. Between the Lines aims to be an antidote for the forgetfulness of the quotidian gratitudes and mysteries we discover along our reading journey.
To read original sources, great and worthy books, and stories from different perspectives, in hopes of growing in knowledge, faith and compassion. Make a reading goal to include selections you would not normally gravitate towards. Challenge yourself to reflect, record, review and remember the important discoveries you make along the way. Sometimes, just a phrase or some key words are all that is needed to make a memory present again. Savoring and remembering such connections invites you on a pathway to discover how your life is woven into the mysterious, human story— an essential practice in the midst of a busy, scattered world. You never know, but as the Southern writer, Flannery O’Connor says, “the life you save may be your own.” Read more. Read well.
