Where God Hides by Liam Lawton


Where God Hides by Liam Lawton

'It is in great simplicity that great beauty is revealed, and only then may we discover where God truly hides.'In this moving exploration of the path to understanding God's presence, Liam Lawton considers how we bring spiritual awakening and consolation into our lives, in every circumstance.Taking inspiration from the gentle, age-old wisdom of the Book of Ecclesiastes - 'There is a time for everything, and a season for everything under the sun' - he begins his journey of reflection and contemplation.Over its course, Liam shares remarkable stories of God's revelation in ordinary human life and of the people and events that have touched him during his years of ministry, along with fascinating perspectives on his own spiritual awakening.'These pages reveal a God who does not intrude upon human living but rather is available to enter into the very depth of it and become present to those who wish for 'eyes to see and ears to hear'. Here are stories of pain and beauty, challenge and consolation, but, above all, inspiration'

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
