Minnesota author Sally Howell Johnson says "I probably like the word practice because, by its very nature, it implies that though I may get better at what I am doing, I will never fully arrive." Her book, The Practicing Life Simple Acts. Sacred Living. talks about the need to learn how to practice the discipline of being aware of the miracle, mediocrity and the Holy in our everyday lives. "How we provide the space, the sacred space, for all the searching people to develop as reflective spiritual travelers is, I believe, the great work of the church, the great work of what it means to be human." The book contains reflections on daily happenings the author has experienced and how they have opened her eyes to the mysterious holy these experiences brought to her. In her reflection Goose Blessing she tells of how the call of a goose startled her awake to the fact that she was missing the beginning signs that spring was arriving. Each reflection contains a short practice at the end of the writing and the goose reflection asks the reader to consider "What sound wakes you up to yourself? What signal calls you home?" The Practicing Life would be a wonderful resource for daily meditation and for encouraging the reader to be open to the daily holy, miraculous and sacred happenings that occur.
