The Desert Journey – Christine Valters Paintner

November 12, 2018

The desert journey isn’t about embarking on a long and arduous struggle to find God at the end of the road.  Desert spirituality is about looking for God right in the very midst of wrestling with ourselves. . . . God loves us and stays with us no matter who we are or what we are doing.  We are loved in the middle of life’s messiness, in the wounded places.”

 — Christine Valters Paintner, PhD  Desert Mothers and Fathers: Early Christian Wisdom Sayings Annotated and Explained
