“Contemplation is waiting patiently for the gaps to be filled in, and it does not insist on quick closure or easy answers. It never rushes to judgment and in fact avoids making quick judgments because judgments have more to do with egoic, personal control than with a loving search for truth.”

“Sit with each italicized sentence and, if need be, read it again until you feel its impact, until . . . ‘the word becomes flesh’ for you!”

“Have you ever noticed that the expression ‘the light of the world’ is used to describe the Christ (John 8:12), but that Jesus also applies the same phrase to us? (Matthew 5:14, ‘You are the light of the world.’) Few preachers ever pointed that out to me.”
