25,000 Mornings: Ancient Wisdom for a Modern Life is to the typical devotional what Narrative Preaching is to Expositional Preaching. Each devotional entry is a look into the personal life of the author - and allowing an applicable scripture to speak to her circumstances. While the technique draws the reader into the author’s life, it also allows us to examine our own life.
Many years ago, I was part of training program provided by hospitals across the nation to either members of the clergy or those studying for the ministry called Clinical Pastoral Education. One of the tools used in each of the 12 week terms was to allow scripture to speak to the relationships and experiences that the student has within the hospital setting. Fay Rowe has applied this technique to her own life and chosen to share it with the rest of us. In doing so, we are allowed to learn and grow.
