Cultivating the Contemplative
Why bother? Why cultivate contemplative spirituality in a demanding world with insatiable needs?
To sustain, not just to sustain, but to thrive in difficult vocations of hope we found that we need to nurture a deep spirituality.
We’re all interested in making the world a better place. But it’s not easy. Learning to develop contemplative practices that make room for silence, solitude, and stillness allows our inner life to impact the external world for good.
The world is in desperate need of healing. And we found that to the degree that we are healed, the world will be healed.
We need both. The contemplative and the active have to go hand in hand.
