“The ‘narrow way’ [of Jesus] is one we travel together without fear. The narrow way is fits and starts. It’s running and walking and sometimes waiting. It’s mountains and valleys and darkness and light. It’s not being able to see the nose on our own faces and then things suddenly opening up into a magnificent vista. It’s sometimes hard, but adventures usually are. It’s not efficient; it’s a conversation. You’re more likely to go three miles an hour than seventy. You may feel alone but you’re not. God is there. And look around you: a great cloud of witnesses.” – from Slow Church by C. Christopher Smith and John Pattison
