Description

Anyone thirsting for a more intimate and disciplined life of prayer will find a rich wellspring in The Cup of Our Life. Joyce Rupp shares how the ordinary cups that we use each day can become sacred vessels that connect us with life and draw us ever closer to God. She explores how the cup is a rich symbol of life, with its emptiness and fullness, its brokenness and flaws, and all of its blessings. This book will both revitalize and enrich your relationship with the Divine through individual usage as well as group usage in parish settings, religious communities and small Christian communities.

Praise

"Rupp is a connossieur of attentiveness, imagination, and prayer."

"As anyone who has read any of her other books knows, Joyce Rupp is a gifted teacher who makes everyday spirituality dramatic, palpable, and transformative. Here she offers six weekly themes based on the cup, a rich symbol of life with its emptiness and fullness, its brokenness and flaws, and its gifts and blessings. Each day has a section that includes an essay, a wisdom saying, a scripture passage, an imagery exercise using a cup, prayers, questions for journaling, and a practice to be carried out during the rest of the day. Rupp is a connossieur of attentiveness, imagination, and prayer."
