The Way of Serenity by Father Jonathan Morris
In his newest book, Father Jonathan leads us on a spiritual journey through one of the most beloved prayers of our day, The Serenity Prayer.
Do you need the courage to change the things you can?
Do you need Serenity to accept the things you cannot change?
Do you need wisdom to know the difference?
In this book, Father Jonathan teaches us how to live all three of these, day in and day out.
Through moving narratives, illuminating historical anecdotes, and pertinent Biblical passages, he demonstrates the life-changing experience of using The Serenity Prayer as an instrument to grow closer to God and receive from him the peace and happiness we all seek.
The Way of Serenity: Finding Peace and Happiness in the Serenity Prayer by Jonathan Morris
Description: FOX News religion analyst, program director of the Catholic Channel on SiriusXM radio, and bestselling author Father Jonathan Morris reveals how the Serenity Prayer offers a sure path to peace and fulfillment for everyone, not just those in recovery programs.
The Serenity Prayer states:
Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.
Exploring the prayer phrase by phrase, Morris shows the hope that can be found by gaining a deeper spiritual understanding of its words and by practicing its message.
Enlightening and profound, The Way of Serenity includes moving narratives, illuminating historical anecdotes, and pertinent biblical passages that demonstrate the power of the Serenity Prayer to help us grow closer to God and find greater peace and happiness.
