In her memoir, God and Green Tea, Canadian minister and former nurse Marilyn-Ann Elphick shares spiritual practices that have helped her flourish in the face of challenges throughout her
life. Elphick’s recollections reveal the importance of contemplation, personal rituals, and community to maintain spiritual health. Set against passages of Scripture and accompanied by points for reflection and prayers, this book invites us to consider how spirituality enters our own life journeys and how we might approach our relationship with God. With its strong focus on religious themes, this book will appeal to readers who are on a spiritual path of their own, whether Christian or of another religious affiliation. In addition, readers with care-oriented occupations, such as nurses, ministers, social workers, teachers, and parents, will find inspiration in this work. Finally, people who are taking stock of their lives, such as senior citizens and those undergoing major transitions, will find refuge in this honest and compassionate memoir.
