I think most everyone can relate to that, if you’re a stay-at-home mom or dad, or if you’re a CEO of a company, or if you’re a banker or a teacher. It’s like the work is never done, the needs are always before us. And so then how are we to respond? Contemplative spirituality has really helped me to find that anchor and that rootedness in the daily presence of God. It’s just not easy to be human.
