An active and robust spirituality is what many people I meet long for. They’re hurried and harried, fragmented and frustrated, and few have anyone to show them the way. Unfortunately, many are turned off and turned away from Christian churches. Churches too often meet those who seek God as too dogmatic and moralistic, oftentimes too concerned with church life to be much help to those seeking God. Many of those who remain in the churches long for more, but figure this is all there is—read the Bible, give money, go to church activities, sit and listen to the preacher. This is not what Christianity ultimately is. And no one needs to settle for a second-hand spirituality.
To those who’ve dismissed Christianity as irrelevant to their heart’s desire, and those whose Christian experience is dull and obligatory, I extend this invitation: join me in seeking a deep and continual experience of intimacy with God, awaken with me to the sacred in every day life, and to walk continually in it . . . revel in your sacred identity.
The interior life is the Way.
Deep within you’ll find God, and you’ll find the person you really are beneath the masks and charades, the wounds and busyness people like you and I use to prop up our aching selves.
This is what you’ll read about in these pages, and this is what I hope you’ll experience as you put into practice the invitation offered here.
