  • Megan McKenna has long been well known in the Catholic community as a writer, speaker, and teacher. In her lectures and writings, McKenna focuses on the central place of storytelling in the spiritual life and on the role of the storyteller as a teacher. She explores the illuminating power of stories, examining both traditional and contemporary tales that are integral parts of Christian, Zen, Jewish, Sufi, Native American, and many other spiritual traditions. "Send My Roots Rain" makes it clear that she is a masterful storyteller and teacher herself.

    A collection of both previously published and unpublished writings, "Send My Roots Rain" features parables that will lead readers to the discovery of timeless truths. Through engaging tales of love, friendship, freedom, peace, and loss, she brings to light the life-enhancing qualities of having a relationship with God, and shows that spiritual fulfillment can only be found through justice and mercy.

    Sometimes spare and stark, often richly warm and humorous, and always refreshingly provocative, McKennas writings transcend particular traditions and practices to reveal the teachings at the heart of all faiths. In the tradition of Merton and Nouwen, McKenna offers a contemporary, progressive perspective on age-old beliefs. "Send My Roots Rain" will attract the many people already familiar with McKennas writings and teachings, and introduce a fresh and exciting voice to millions of new readers.
