“Discernment is first of all a habit, a way of seeing that eventually permeates our whole life. It is the journey from spiritual blindness (not seeing God anywhere or seeing him only where we expect to see him) to spiritual sight (finding God everywhere, especially where we least expect it).”
Ruth Haley Barton, Sacred Rhythms: Arranging Our Lives for Spiritual Transformation

“The purpose of journeying together in spiritual friendship and spiritual community (whether there are just two of you or whether you are in a small group) is to listen to one another's desire for God, to nurture that desire in each other and to support one another in seeking a way of life that is consistent with that desire. ”
Ruth Haley Barton, Sacred Rhythms: Arranging Our Lives for Spiritual Transformation

Ruth Haley Barton, Sacred Rhythms: Arranging Our Lives for Spiritual Transformation
