Compass Points

Meeting God Every Day at Every Turn

$13.95

Compass Points is written out of the conviction that God isn’t as elusive as we think, and certainly isn’t stuck in a holy box that we visit only on Sundays. Like the light shining through the image on the cover, the God who runs through Compass Points is likely to turn up just about anywhere—on a boardwalk, in the movement of water, in the energy and curiosity of a child, and in the sparkling presence that flickers through a fountain. God is in the big story of our human journey on planet earth, in our origins and in our destiny and in every moment in between. And God is in all the smaller but equally amazing stories of how our individual lives move on, step by step and day by day. God is in the light and in the shadows of our experience, in what we rejoice in and in what we grieve over. God is both the dream we follow and the inspiration for our quest. God is in every choice we make, always urging us, prompting us, and coaxing us to choose life. When our lives fall apart, God is right there, waiting and longing to lead us beyond breakdown to breakthrough.”

—Margaret Silf


In Compass Points, best-selling Ignatian spirituality author Margaret Silf enables us to see God beyond the grandiose and introduces us to the Divine in our daily lives. Through short but powerful meditations rooted in Ignatian spirituality and through vignettes based on her own authentic spiritual experiences, Silf reveals the interior process of Ignatian mindfulness—a core tenet of which is that God can be found in all things. By joining Silf on her journey through real life in the real world, our eyes, minds, and hearts are opened to the Divine experience, and we come to recognize God’s active presence in everything that we do.
