The Spiritual Question

The spiritual question is not about "Mine is the only true map" but "does my life give any evidence of an encounter with God?" Does this encounter bring about in you any of the things that Paul describes as "fruits of the Spirit: love, joy peace, patience, kindness, goodness, truthfulness, gentleness, self-control?" (Galatians 5:22) Is the person or the group after this encounter different from its surroundings, or does it follow the predictable cultural values and biases of its group?

When there is not too much to enjoy from the inside, all you can do is to keep yourself above and apart from others." (Richard Rohr, Immortal Diamond,p.109)
