In an easy, anecdotal style, Rupp brings the accessibility of God to her listeners. She emphasizes that we need not wait for a "mountain top experience." We have only to look for God here and now in ordinary things and events; that creation bears the touch of God and to live with an awareness of the sacred in life.
