Listening to God and to One Another

20 questions for journaling, discussion, meditation, and reflection

IMG_2452-e1430757795959Inspired by questions* from John O’Donohue’s book, To Bless the Space Between Us, Vonda Drees has created 20 full color cards perfect for discussion and meditation by individuals or groups. Each 3.5″ x 5.75″ card includes a question inviting you to go deeper as you listen for God.

These cards can be used by youth groups, leadership teams or at family gatherings. Keep a set by your bedside or in your desk at work. Carry it with you when you travel.

Sit with each card. Listen for God.

Where do you feel the Spirit moving?

Each full color set of 20 discussion cards comes in its own custom box and is available for $20, shipping included.


I’ll take one of the images and set it in a conspicuous place so that I encounter it throughout the day as well as sitting with it and musing – letting the thoughts flit and flow, wander through my mind as they will.


About the Author

John O’Donohue, Irish teacher and poet, has been widely praised for his gift of drawing on Celtic spiritual traditions to create words of inspiration and wisdom for today. In his book, To Bless the Space Between Us, his compelling blend of elegant, poetic language and spiritual insight offers readers comfort and encouragement on their journeys through life. “At the End of the Day: A Mirror of Questions” awakens readers to timeless truths and shows the power they have to answer contemporary dilemmas and ease us through periods of change.*
