Really excited to announce another guest post - check out the Missio Alliance blog for my first contribution to their writing collective. Here's an excerpt:
While the mystics make a lifestyle out of deeper internal understanding and knowledge, the other camp insists that true holiness and knowledge of God can only be found outside ourselves.
What if these two positions aren’t mutually exclusive?
We are both basically good and basically evil. Our human heart, left to its own devices, may in fact be desperately wicked. But none of us are left to our own devices! We are all image-bearers of God, infused with God’s divine spark and called to develop and share that spark.
