Jeff Imbach and SoulStream Present:
A Day with St. John of the Cross
Intention for the Day
Our desire for this day will be to allow the poem “Living Flame of Love” guide our meditation and prayer (see poem below). We will seek to notice the ways the movements of this great work are becoming evident in our own transformative experience with God. Some background will be offered and prayer periods evoked by the stanzas of the poem itself.
