Devotions for the Divorcing offers a glimmer of hope and reflective inspiration for people in the midst of divorce. For those who are lonely, guilty, depressed, frustrated, and unhappy this collection of devotions provides relief from the daily pressures and traumas of marriage failure.Thompson's devotions plus his insightful pastoral letter and postscript enable divorcing people to keep things in perspective. His meditations cover: depression, ecstasy, boredom, death, sexuality, church experiences, social settings, fears, family, and job performance. In each meditation you will feel the presence of a personal God -- a God who is there everyday in every situation.Thompson's mediative reflections lead you on a spiritual journey through the weeks of separation, through the growing 'public' awareness of your divorce, through the anxiety, through faith to the reconciliation that healthy divorcing people achieve before moving on with their lives.Read this book. Refer to it. Reflect on it. It is an ideal pastoral resource to give to divorcing members in your church. Human and real, these illustrations and devotions from the soul and contemporary mind of a divorcing person are exactly on target.
