In these pages, I hope to converse with you, sharing some of what I have learned and experienced on a spiritual odyssey that began a long time ago. This book is an invitation to link your soul with mine, so that together we might explore the ways of the One who would have us think, listen, and love as Christ did and now does — not by imitation, but through a gradual inner transformation.
