In Seasons of the Spirit, Jane Rutter guides you gently through the rhythms of the church's liturgical seasons including Advent, Lent, Easter, and Ordinary Time. She finds the "God moment" in the actions of daily life: a sports event, taking a walk, fixing cars, waiting in traffic jams, shopping, or canning salsa.

It is a joy to see that Jane Rutter is offering the results of her prayerful reflections to help us all as we progress through the liturgical year. I am certain that all who avail themselves of Seasons of the Spirit will be greatly rewarded with God's grace and peace.
Most Reverend John R. Gaydos, Bishop of Jefferson City
Jane Rutter in her book Seasons of the Spirit has beautifully captured how our souls are regenerated through the dailiness of our lives to resemble the spirit of Jesus Christ and identify with God's purpose. This book is a profound and transforming piece of literature! This book is life changing. A must read!
