From AudioFile
Based on a 1970 book by a much loved archbishop of the Russian Orthodox Church in Great Britain (who died last year at age 89), this audio is a splendidly narrated presentation of the author’s writing on mercy and hope. Moving “Godward,” he says, is not for the fainthearted, proud, or overconfident. It’s a humbling experience that takes us to something deeper and richer, but only if we respect the power and abundance that God exercises in our lives on His terms. Compared to God, we possess nothing and are master of nothing. Humbly connecting with His benevolence is the only path to the love we are all meant to have.
