Earth's Echo

"My profession is always to be alert, to find God in nature," Henry David Thoreau wrote. Or as the Buddha once said, "If you wish to know the divine, feel the wind on your face and the warm sun on your hand." Earth's Echo is a book for people who love nature and find spiritual meaning in it. Using brief excerpts from the work of nature writers as touchstones for meditation, the book leads the reader to reflect on the sacred reality of nature as found in different settings: the seashore, the river, the forest, the desert, and the mountain. It translates the traditional monastic practice of sacred reading, known as lectio divina, into an easily accessible four-step form: paying attention, pondering, responding, and surrendering.
Product Details


"For Robert Hamma all of nature--the seashore, the river, the forest, the desert, the mountains--is not just a metaphor for God but a form of divine presence. Earth's Echo is a sacred and awe-inspiring book that is indispensable reading for anyone on a spiritual journey." "Thomas Merton defined monastic prayer as an "attentive, watchful listening of the heart." With the words of well-known nature writers as his inspiration, and his own poetic reflections as our guide, Robert Hamma teaches us how to listen to the world--and how to pray."
