A book by Kevin P. Ryan ’88
Growing up in a devout Catholic family, Ryan had long been a “praying person.” As he matured, the formulaic memorizations of his youth gave way to more spontaneous expressions garnered from experiences as broad as backpacking and running to simple daily life observations during his 28-year teaching career at a Catholic high school in Columbus, Ohio. The daily prayers he shared with students inspired Seeing God Everywhere, a collection of 366 reflections drawn from a wide range of spiritual and interfaith traditions. “Prayer doesn’t have to happen in a church setting,” Ryan says. “It’s a way of life.”
