Forty years ago I was seeking a deeper walk with God; however, I was a failure at prayer. The lists and words were a burden. Then I heard teaching on contemplative prayer. I devoured it like a hungry lion. Finally, I knew how God had created me. Being involved in Christos was a coming home. Through the years I’ve been a teacher, director, pilgrim, worker, planner, and now board member. What stays constant is my delight at being a part of a ministry that strives to cultivate the inner life.
