Followers of Jesus often express the desire to extend hospitality, engage in community, and pray more faithfully—but those good intentions aren’t carried out as consistently as they’d like. MAKING SPACE: WELCOMING GOD’S PRESENCE offers encouragement to develop and feed such habits. Designed as a companion through the Lenten season, this book is based on proven disciplines practiced by the body of Christ throughout the ages—practices that may help today’s Christian deal with the excesses that crowd heart, mind and calendar. You’re invited to be part of this journey, to let go what isn’t necessary and take hold of what lasts. Along the way, you’re likely to find your life deepening and widening—as you welcome the beautiful, life-giving presence of God.
