We should weep for ourselves. For we have big things, know big things, yet our nights are filled with anxiety, our days with drudgery, and in the forest around us we see only trees.
We have big things – megachurches, multimedia resources, ministries that reach around the world. We know big things – the doctrines of the Bible, the differences between the denominations, the dateline of Armageddon.
But we don’t look into each other’s eyes.
And we’re hungry for quietness.
We are famished for experiences that are real, relationships that are deep, work that is meaningful.
