New every morning is your love, great God of light, and all day long you are working for good in the world. Stir up in us desire to serve you, to live peacefully with our neighbors and all your creation, and to devote each day to your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Benedictine Wisdom for Today
Elizabeth J. Canham
• November 1999
eBook (Available in ePub or Kindle)
Heart Whispers offers accessible insights from Benedictine spirituality to help us explore the need for faithful living in today's often stress-filled world.
By listening with "the ear of the heart," the sixth-century monk Benedict gained a fresh perspective on Christian spirituality as he lived by three simple vows: stability, obedience, and conversion.
A Leader's Guide is also available for those who wish to study Heart Whispers in groups.
The Rev. Dr. Elizabeth J. Canham lives in Black Mountain, North Carolina, and offers her ministry in teaching and spiritual formation in an ecumenical context as priest, teacher, retreat and workshop leader, and spiritual guide. She is the author of Heart Whispers: Benedictine Wisdom for Today and A Table of Delight: Feasting with God in the Wilderness.
