Published by Ave Maria Press
What began in 1979 as a response to a random bulletin board posting would ultimately change Sister Marilyn Lacey's life--and the lives of countless refugees. In vivid prose, Sister Lacey narrates her twenty-five year spiritual journey of work with those displaced by conflict and disaster. In the spirit of Dead Man Walking, she invites us to solidarity with some of the world's most vulnerable.

Timely and engaging, This Flowing Toward Me offers fresh, personal insights into the world of refugees and international immigrants. More importantly, it stirs our hearts to remember the gospel mandate to welcome the stranger.

This Flowing Toward Me: A Story of God Arriving in Strangers
conveys with ener-getic wit and wisdom the surprising presence of God in the dailyness of life,with all its joys and sorrows, its fears and fancies, dreams and difficulties. Thestarting point is the author’s unexpected insertion into the world of refugees.The endpoint is nothing less than graced union with the God for whom weall yearn. Treat yourself to this book: It will surely change the way you thinkabout strangers and aliens—and quite possibly change your understanding of who God is and where God dwells and how you two could meet.
