How do you connect to God? Are there practices or pieces of art or music or liturgy that evoke this relationship?

Is there a book or poem that ‘gets you’ every time, or a writer who sparks you in those hard moments?

Do you find this connection through trees, the changing of seasons, the cycle of the moon?

In my desire to expand my mostly classic literature blog to reflect the variety of books I read, a brief exchange with fellow bloggers regarding religion and spirituality has prompted me to create an informal monthly event shared across social media.


Books, Art, Photography, Music, Poetry, Liturgy, Creativity

Some suggestions: a book review, a personal post on a particular practice, share a photo or piece of art. Is there a word or phrase or passage from your liturgy or spiritual books that you find beautiful? Does a particular melody or a song connect you to God every time you hear it?

If you don’t believe in God or religion but you are inspired by life share, too.

Jews, Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Atheists, Pagans, Heathens, Druids, Wiccans, Tree-Huggers, Mother Nature Lovers, Those-Inspired-by-Life. Everyone is welcome!

The Mechanics

We can find each other with the hashtag #BloggingTheSpirit to use on Twitter and Instagram and other social media. And you can put a link to your post in the comments of my first Sunday post.

Thank you for contributing!

  1. Laurie, I found this book helpful and interesting: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Christian-Animism-Shawn-Sanford-Beck/dp/1782799656/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1546841950&sr=8-1&keywords=sanford+beck
    The author suggests there is much to be gained and enjoyed from not just becoming more aware of the natural world around us, but developing spiritual practices “designed to facilitate and enhance my relationship with the living Earth and the spirits of nature which surround us.”

  5. I won’t join in this month as I’ll be largely offline, having already scheduled a number of posts. But I’m certainly thinking about it for some future months, Laurie. Looking forwars to others’ responses though!
