Fan The Flame: Meditations For Spiritual Direction

Fan the Flame

This book is for anyone pursuing truth in their relationship with God through
spiritual direction. In the tradition of Christian contemplatives and mystics
from the early centuries to the present, Rob Des Cotes brings fresh insights
to many familiar biblical passages, applying them to prayer and to the
transforming work of spiritual direction. The numerous images and creative
metaphors of the spiritual journey found in these concise and thought-
provoking meditations are both contemporary while deeply rooted in the
classics of Catholic, Orthodox and Reformation contemplative traditions.

Higher Than I: Meditations For Spiritual Direction

Higher Than I

Higher Than I affirms our dissatisfactions with the spiritual life. Seeking
the “rock that is higher than I” means to desire more of God and to pine
for what seems essential to the spiritual life yet lacking in us. This book of
meditations encourages us to press on in pursuit and longing for all that God
has in store for us.
