Say yes to the very best in your life! By affirming the goodness and meaning of life, we journey into the very heart of spirituality. We answer the challenge of Ignatius of Loyola to "find God in all things." To achieve this, author Willi Lambert invites readers to reflect on their deepest desires and say yes to them in new and more profound ways.
Practical prayer exercises and provocative reflection questions appear throughout the book, helping the reader recognize God's call in the desires of the heart and the events of everyday life. And with each chapter shaped around a particular part of the Spiritual Exercises, The Sevenfold Yes is not only helpful for the spiritual beginner in search of a guide, but is an excellent aid for both retreat directors and participants alike. Ultimately, this path to the center of the spiritual life and human happiness, though less traveled, is worth the effort.
