[At The Foundation Of The Christian Life, There Is A Kind Of Sacred Individuality, A Sort Of Holy Aloneness That Cries Out To Be Left Alone With God. This Isn't All Of The Christian Life. It Doesn't Erase Those Parts Of A Christian's Experience That Happen In The Context Of Relationships, But This Sacred Solitude Needs To Be Discovered, Respected, And Protected.It Is That Place Where We Most Irrefutably Hear God Tell Us That He Loves Us, And We Come To Know That, No Matter What Other People May Say About Us Or Do To Us, God Will Not Abandon Us. That Holy Solitude Is The Place Where We Find God's Spirit Changing Our Affections And Redirecting Our Identities. It Is, For Jesus-followers, Holy Ground.]

Quotes About Going Off The Grid

"Andras went through the Sortie doors and walked out into a city that no longer contained his brother. He walked on benumbed feet in the new black Oxfords his brother had brought him from Hungary. He didnt care who passed him on the street or where he was going. If he had stepped off the curb into the air instead of down into the gutter, if he had climbed the void above the cars and between the buildings until he was looking down at the rooftops with their red-clay chimney pots, their irregular curving grid, and if he had then kept climbing until he was wading through the slough of low-lying clouds in the winter sky, he would have felt no shock or joy, no wonder or surprise, just the same leaden dampness in his limbs." - Author: Julie Orringer
