Scenes from this year’s reading pile: Creation Waits


I have read and re-read this wonderful book multiple times and find something new in it with each fresh reading. The author Agnes Sanford was a charismatic pastor’s wife in the Episcopalian church. Though it was written in the 1970s, Creation Waits sounds a very timely and relevant call for those of us drawn to prayer to consider how we might tend the Earth, its creatures and ecosystems. I had to track it down via a second hand book seller and it was worth the effort. I highly recommend it to Christian readers who are interested in intercessory prayer.
