I’m happy to be finally writing again, after spending the last six months focusing on finishing my book, Prayer as Night Falls: Experiencing Compline, which will be published in November by Paraclete Press (the picture is from their Fall catalog). I sent the manuscript in the first week of April, and the editing took a couple more months. Recently, I went over the copyedited version, and sent that back yesterday, so I think I can come up for air now!
As you can see from the description, I take six themes inspired by Compline which are intertwined with history and stories from my own spiritual journey. But what I am really excited about is that there will be a website where one can listen to many examples of the music and texts which have been most inspiring to me
Expect to hear more about the book in coming blogs, but there is so much more to write about. Next time I will tell you about the Compline Choir’s new CD (released at the end of May), I Will Meditate. Also check out a new source of Compline podcasts at king.org. Search for the Compline Service under the “On Demand” menu.
