Join our Virtual Book Club: The Cup of Our Life by Joyce Rupp
As a follow-up to the successful retreat day by Joyce Rupp last month, we on the Commission for Women would like to extend an invitation to you to join our Virtual Book Club. We will begin by a weekly study of The Cup of Our Life by Joyce Rupp.
Would you like to join with us? Here’s what you need to do:
- First, you need to be a subscriber to this blog. Subscribing is easy – simply send an email to email@example.com and type SUBSCRIBE in the subject heading. If you are already on our mailing list, you are already subscribed.
- Secondly, if you do not have a copy of The Cup of Our Life, you will need to procure one. There are a variety of ways to do so:
- Visit your local bookstore and ask them to order The Cup of Our Life by Joyce Rupp, ISBN: 978-1-93349-531-6, published by Ave Maria Press. Be sure to specify that you want the 2012 revised edition.
- Visit these websites to purchase online:
In the introduction she writes, “In the cup I see life, with its emptiness, fullness, brokenness, flaws, and blessings … The spiritual journey
is like that – a constant process
of emptying and filling, of giving and receiving, of accepting and letting go.”
The Cup of Our Life will lead you on such a spiritual journey through simple exercises. Each one includes a short reflection written by Joyce followed by a time of quiet prayer. She offers simple prompts for journaling to facilitate writing down your reflections as you meditate. You can do one exercise each day and complete the book in six weeks, or you can spread it out over time.
You can read more about The Cup of Life here on Joyce Rupp’s website.
We will be reflecting on one exercise each week. And we want you to participate by commenting on our reflections. At the bottom of each post is a place where you can submit your comment. The ideal would be to create a discussion, just like in a group or book club setting.
