Drawn to the Living Water: Twenty Years of Spiritual DiscoveryLiving Water cover

by Wayne Rapp, Rick Hatem, and Anne Rapp

In a story wrapped around a story, a woman, searching for a more meaningful relationship with the God of Life, finds kindred souls as she is introduced to The Spirituality Network.

Founded by Dominican sister Noreen Malone, the organization has evolved into an ecumenical group of searchers and believers providing resources to foster spiritual growth. For 27 years, The Spirituality Network has been a companion on the journey of those who, like the Psalmist, "thirst for the God of Life" (Ps 42).

The impact of the Spirituality Network comes alive in this account of those who believed in the vision and worked to bring it about.
