Symphonies of the Heart: Spiritual Harmony and the Quest for Holiness is the latest book authored by Greer G. Gordon, director of the Frederick Douglass Unity House and teacher in the departments of Philosophy and African/African American Studies.
Published by Pauline Books & Media in Boston, the publishing house of the Daughters of St. Paul, the 112-page paperback touches the great human longing to perceive the presence of God in the scattered pieces of our lives..., according to the publisher. With wisdom, humor and story, the author takes us along the journey through the changing movements of the heart, where we learn to hear and recognize the spiritual symphonies God composes within us.
Gordon said that the book is directed toward the average person who is seeking a relationship with the holy or sacred. Following a well-received book signing in Los Angeles, California this past August, she was scheduled to return for similar events during October and November.
A native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Gordon was formerly a member of the theology faculty at Regis College in Weston, MA; director of the Office for Black Catholics in the Archdiocese of Boston, Massachusetts; Director of Adult Religious Education in the Archdiocese of Washington, DC; and Consultant for Catechist Formation in the Diocese of Oakland, California. Gordon was the first woman Baccalaureate Speaker at Boston University and Regis College.
