God and the People: Prayers for a Newer New Awakening
A Book of Prayers by Gary Gunderson
The prayers Gary Gunderson shares with us in this little book
foster in anyone willing to enter fully into their spirit a sense of
new possibilities for engagement with the sacred all around us
in the communities where we live and serve.
We hear in these prayers the voice of a poet, and also hear the
words of a prophet calling for social justice, knowing for sure we
should do better: “How do You stand it, God? What holds back
your wrath and vengeance on all of us who care so little?”
There is wonder at the goodness of the world created for us
– astonished joy in the “leading causes of life,” and amazement
at life itself. He prays “Thank You for weaving in ways we could
not know to hope. — Dr. Jerry Winslow, Loma Linda University
