* Your digital camera (or smart phone) can be a window to wonder-and God. * Includes practical guidance, reflection questions, activities, and examples * Can be used by youth or adult groups or for individual spiritual practice There's more to life than selfies! With the advent of digital photography and the widespread use of camera-equipped smart phones, we have all become photographers. Can the same technology that makes the upload of selfies and endless posting to Instagram and Facebook also function as a tool for quiet contemplation, connection, and deeper meaning? Indeed yes: the practice of contemplative photography invites people of faith to set aside distrac-tions of contemporary life to view the world through the eyes of the divine and uncover the ex-traordinary in the ordinary. Reflection questions, suggested activities, invitations to journal and create a volume of discovery, and original photographs taken by the author are accompanied by inspirational quotes and passages from scripture. Providing practical guidance for photography as a means of meditation and reflection and a form of prayer, readers will be encouraged to be seekers, open and present, ready to be refreshed, re-newed, and delighted.
