    heightens and enlightens daily living

    Author offers specific daily encounters we all have and demonstrates how to conveniently transform such from Rush to Relating. Trying his suggestions have proven to me that this process aids individual persons to become who we are meant to be as caring individuals. Improved my doctor appointment that amazed me and my blood pressure reading! Inspiring!

    The I-Thou relationship comes easily and often, over breakfast or at work, in the classroom or at the gym as well as in turning points of life. In the eighty years since Jewish thinker Martin Buber proposed the idea of I-Thou, no one has taken ordinary language to describe this simple spirituality in words, gestures and glances. God in Our Relationships: The Spirituality between People from the Teachings of Martin Buber makes clear the ephemeral and often overlooked encounter of I and Thou. Many people turn into the soul for insights of belief and for faith. God in Our Relationships looks outward, to holy possibilities between people, to the spiritual opportunities in words, gestures and glances. Drawing from the writings and biography of Martin Buber, from his loving edition of Hasidic tales as well as from the Bible and events in my typical day, God in Our Relationships speaks to all faiths about an interpersonal spirituality, that special feeling ¿in the air¿ in simple exchanges of words and in heart-to-heart conversation. As a rabbi, I talk about God. As a social worker, I focus on interpersonal communication. In God in Our Relationships, I weave together two decades of religious and social life to describe the holiness of the I-Thou relationship -- what it is, when it arrives, why it must end, what of it endures and why it is so important. Writing this book deepened my spiritual awareness and strengthened my devotion to human relation. It is my hope that God in Our Relationships brings you the same insight, energy and fulfillment.
