"Were our hearts not buring within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?" (Luke 24:32)
"Deep reflection on the Scripture, not just reading or skimming through or even exegeting a text, can lead to a transforming personal encounter with Christ that catalyzes spiritual growth. It is this relationship of knowing God and being known by him that changes a person from the inside out."
--Katherine Johnson, Lectio Divina as a Catalyst for Spiritual Growth (Doctoral Research Project)
"Spiritual transformation comes from partnering with the Trinity for change. We bring our ache for change, our longing…our desperation…. Then we keep company with Jesus by making space for him through a spiritual discipline. Our part is to offer ourselves lovingly and obediently to God. God then works within us doing what he alone can do."
--Adele Calhoun, Spiritual Disciplines Handbook, 19.
