My Heart Is A Raging Volcano Of Love For You!

Awakening to At-One-Ment Volume II

These liturgical prayers feed my heart and my spirit. Grounded in the theology of baptism, and rooted in the ancient Christian and the Anglican-Episcopal traditions, Forrester’s liturgical texts will appeal to the weary pilgrim and the faithful church-goer, as well as all those seeking a deeper experience of the Beloved.

At a time when many are yearning for contemporary expressions of the sacred, this profound and moving book demonstrates that liturgical prayer is intended to be part of a joyful, living, expansive tradition. A valuable resource for faith communities, Sheryl A. Kujawa-Holbrook, Claremont School of Theology Bloy House, Episcopal School of Theology at Claremont, Kevin is a gifted wordsmith and in ways both subtle and dramatic he brings the liturgy alive in a remarkable and exciting way. For example, Kevin turns his remarkable poetic gifts and theological insights to weaving the weekly scriptural themes into a collective prayer written in such an elegant way that any congregation wanting to sight read the opening prayer in unison may confidently do so.

Kevin is thoroughly studied and versed in the early Christian writers. Add to this a commitment to a Trinitarian and sacramental theology. Combine with a literary and poetic gift of rare quality and you have this book you now hold in your hands. Tom Ray, IX Bishop of the Diocese of Northern Michigan

Dr. Forrester’s prayers, liturgies, and blessings are evocative and beautifully written. They use expansive language for God, plumb the breadth and depth of cosmic wisdom, and draw from both the mystics and revolutionary teachers. This book is a blessing for the Church and shows how to worship and pray based on the model of mutual ministries. I highly recommend it. Kwok Pui-lan, William F. Cole Professor of Christian Theology and Spirituality Episcopal Divinity School, Cambridge, Massachusetts
