“When somebody asked one of our men, Peter, if he liked to pray, he said that he did. So the person continued and asked him what he did when he prayed. He replied: ‘I listen.’ Then the person asked what God says to him. Peter, a man with Down’s Syndrome, looked up and said: ‘He just says, ‘You are my beloved son.’”

-Jean Vanier, From Brokenness to Community

That quote and book remind me of one called "Reaching Out" by one of my favorite authors Henri J M Nouwen. Oh to listen more and talk less to Abba, eh? Hope all is well Mr. Robinson!
