Your physical body needs oxygen in order to survive. Inhale, exhale...one leads naturally to the other. Inhale too long, and you feel as if your lungs will burst. Exhale too long, and you get light-headed.
The same rhythm is essential in the life of faith. You inhale life-giving strength from God through things like prayer, study, solitude, and silence. You exhale generosity, hospitality, and service to the poor. If you try to do one without the other, you won't last very long.
This fresh perspective on the classic disciplines of the faith will empower you to process the oxygen of the Spirit. Discover how you can develop a balanced spirituality that reflects the life of Jesus and keeps your faith growing strong. Book jacket.
