"What if humanity came together in the light and spirit poured otu at Pentecost? Would it not be possible to become of one heart and mind and to discover a unity? Can we live together, and together touch the Divine?
Writing in the ancient desert tradition of short meditations on a spiritual theme, Bishop Seraphim explores what community means and how unity among human beings is truly possible. With insight drawn from Fr. Alexander Men and other theologians of the Orthodox tradition, as well as his own long-term involvement in supporting religious communities in Russia and America, he offers his readers a cultured and complex weave of Christian insight. A Life Together is a wonderful resource for reflection: a private retreat with an experienced spiritual father.
Bishop Seraphim Sigrist is a Bishop of the Orthodox Church in America. His publications include two books of Christian spirituality and a translated book of the Japanese author Kenji Miyazawa, as well as frequent contributions to Parabola.
