Part of how we see God is determined by how we listen to God. There is so much noise and movement in the world that competes with images of God. This noise would drown out God’s beckoning voice and distract us. We may not sense what spiritual directors refer to as the thin place—God come near. Charles Qualls’s A Hungry Soul Desperate to Taste God’s Grace: Honest Prayers for Life offers readers prayers for that journey toward the meaning and mystery of God.
