Quote for the Day

The prophetic voice and the spirit of inner prayer are not two alternative ways of Christian witness: they are inseparable in a healthy Christian life, and history shows that where they are not held together, both decay.

  1. The gift of this quote, for me Carl, lies within the ‘healthy’ rhythmic weaving between impure inner prayer and impure prophetic voice…..where all claim ‘to know’ is graciously brought to its knees…..where we are lovingly bathed in the fragrant delights of unknowingness, laden with mystical gifts of radiant clarity. In rising, all is lost and it was never found.
