This is a bit self-promotional, but it may give you more insight into the spirituality behind the ideas you read here.

A kindred spirit, Lauri Lumby of Authentic Freedom Ministries, recently honored me with an invitation to submit a guest post to her blog. In response, I sent her “Living the Monk’s Life in the Real World,” which briefly describes my experience as a monastic associate—and the impact it has on my life. Because the “work of the soul” is a key component of my approach to dialogue, I thought you might like to read more about this work. Your comments, as always, are welcome, either there or here. Happy reading. (If you like what you see on Lauri’s blog, I suggest you subscribe. Her approach to spirituality resonates deeply with mine, and she communicates it with love and gentleness toward her readers.)
