The Strength of Solitude

For all of our piety and activity, we Christians are not always known for our kindness. Sometimes we are downright mean and judgmental. But most, if not all, of our meanness comes out of the places within us that have been unattended and untouched by God's love. Every broken place that has not been healed and transformed in God's presence is a hard edge of our personality that slices and dices other people when they bump up against it.
This article by Ruth Haley Barton, The Strength of Solitude, will help us see that learning to be with God in solitude allows us to be Godly in community.
