The liturgical season of Ordinary Time runs for roughly twenty-nine weeks, from Pentecost Sunday in the spring until the first Sunday of Advent in late fall. It's the longest season of the church year, with few significant events along the way, which gives it a kind of ordinariness that the other seasons lack. There are no narrative high points, no showy colors or costumes, not even a signature hymn or two. At the Still Point expands the genre of spiritual writing to include classic and contemporary fiction and poetry, aimed at inviting you to experience God through your imagination during Ordinary Time. In these pages there are worlds to be explored, characters to meet, images to gaze upon, phrases to savor. You will encounter passages from novelists from Austen and Tolstoy to Dostoevsky and Garrison Keillor and poets from George Herbert and St. John of the Cross to Scott Cairns and Kathleen Norris.
