The Healing Power Of Christian Rituals And Symbols
|Language of origin
Find meaning – come to rest – experience healing
Since the beginning of human history, symbols have represented the polarities of life. They touch our innermost being whose depth can be experienced in rituals. Christian symbols and rituals have their origin in God, the friend of life (Solomon/Wisdom 11:26), who cares about the well-being of people. They thus prove to be a practical means for emotional support, and their healing effect has been confirmed by current research.
Starting from our everyday experiences, the authors begin their search of supporting, life-affirming symbols and rituals that appeal to us as seekers of meaning and Christians. Their approach is for us to use our senses to find meaning: starting from everyday encounters, they recite human experiences summed up in proverbs and sayings and end up with the Christian meaning.
The guidebook is intended for believers and non-believers alike who are seeking to add depth to their lives and would like to rediscover the inspiring field of symbols and rituals and their healing powers.
