How the five senses are a powerful, biblically based means for us to encounter God, not only as we practice our faith but also as we participate in the "messy splendor" of daily life.
Think of someone you love, invite God into the experience, and run through your memories sense by sense. It's a powerful way to celebrate the person you love and to grow closer to God.
"Even on the most frustrating, I- got-stuck-in-traffic-and-my-job-is-awful sort of day, there are always little signs of God’s goodness, filling every one of our senses."
"We live in a world that is alive with color of every shade and hue."
"There will come a time when the voices of the people we love, which we hear so often that we sometimes tune them out, are no longer a part of the sounds that make up our days."
"It can change the mood of a room—or a piece of clothing, or a media-saturated mom—like nothing else."
"Eating is something you have to do to exist, God seems to say, and you might as well enjoy the process."
In bringing our attention to the real things of life, to the tangible experiences we have every day, Taste & See has a broad appeal.
"Taste and See" is a good book to take in the bathtub, or to tuck into a purse for an afternoon at the playground.
"Taste & See" isn't a book that you can just fly through. It is a tool to use in everyday life to turn off the noise and to go into a deeper relationship with God.
