Overview

Everyone has a story. And those stories are going on all around us, all the time. Typically we don't pay much attention to them. We don't listen, don't inquire, don't appreciate. But what if we did? What if every time our story intersected with another person's story, we used it as an opportunity to enjoy that person and somehow enhance his or her story? Sacred intersections describes how doing so can enliven our experience of God, add meaning to our lives, and make a difference in the world around us.

I love Sacred Intersections! It’s beautiful to see the way that Steve’s artfully crafted words ring true in real relationships. In a world where the word ‘crisis’ is most often modified by ‘economic,’ Sacred Intersections reminds us that the real issues are always relational. Sacred Intersections sets a cornerstone in the foundation of a relational worldview.

As a child of Holocaust survivors and a facilitator of the One by One Dialogue Group in Berlin, I have experienced and seen the trauma caused by non-listening and the great wall of silence. In this book, Steve Adams gives us tools, insights and powerful perspective on what loving, listening, attention and caring can do for one as well as many. The ability to tell the story, be witnessed and heard is the way to transform and heal the past, in the present, for the future.
>>Sascha Schneider, documentary filmmaker (One by One fosters dialogue between the descendants of Nazis and descendants of Holocaust survivors.)

I have thought for years that a central part of spiritual growth is paying attention to God and looking for Him to show up in our daily lives. Steve Adams invites us to do this in every single encounter we have—with a close friend, a customer, a person on the street, or a lady at the car wash—and see God involved in every relationship. With wisdom, humor, and a rare ability to poke at himself, Steve tells stories that resonate with life as it’s really lived. Because of this book, I end up noticing God more. And I end up more aware of His presence. Thank you, Steve!
