"There is always creative tension. The clay is just as important as the potter. Our relationship with God is dynamic, a dance; like the one between foot, hand, wheel, clay, and water. We find God in the process, in the relationship. Spiritual life is collaborative, God needs us active and working. God is our co-conspirator."

"The prayer is the beginning, action is what follows. Ask, yes. Then search, find, knock, open, receive, give. The words are not enough. Jesus didn’t just pray “your kingdom come on earth,” he lived it. He brought the kingdom of God to earth with each shared meal, each story, each act of mercy. He prayed, and taught, and lived."
