The Spiritual Life, Living Between Mountains of Truth:
“The spiritual life is lived in the tension between opposites. For example, we must be confident enough to be humble, wise enough to know we are foolish, strong enough to see our weakness.
Keeping a sense of balance between these end points keeps us alert. It requires daily practice. We study, we pray, we give, we receive.
Every day is a lesson in itself. Let us be mindful of what we have learned. We would not know peace without struggle, gain without loss, faith without doubt.
We do not live on a flat earth of the spirit, but between mountains of truth.”
~ The Rt. Rev. Steven Charleston, Choctaw
How then do we apply what we learn in our spiritual lives for how to live in the world?
