Drawing on everyday experiences from preparing meals to harvesting hay, Cathy Hird delves into the patterns of our spiritual journey.  In this collection of her columns, originally written for an on-line news magazine, Hird explores things we see every day to uncover the inter-connectedness of life and how we find meaning and purpose in our days.

As a farmer, she is embedded in creation. As a minister, she cares for the vulnerable. And all her work is driven by a desire for balance in life and wholeness for the world we live in. These reflections begin with her daily journey and reach for a sense of the divine. They invite the reader to step into the world she sees and, at the same time, re-imagine their own spiritual journey.
