#ad
Image #ad - Orbis Books. Sacred fire: a vision for a Deeper Human and Christian Maturity. Where do we go once some of the basic questions in our lives have been answered, more mature lives? what constitutes deep maturity and how do we reach that place? and, christian discipleship? what constitutes a truly mature following of Jesus?”   As the poet Rainer Maria Rilke suggests, what constitutes a more adult, and more meaningfully? How do I live beyond my own heartaches, or at least brought to enough peace that our focus can shift away from ourselves to others? Where do we go once the basic questions in our lives are no longer the restless questions of youthful insecurity and loneliness? Who am I? Who loves me? How will my life turn out? Where do we go once the basic question in life becomes: How can I give my life away more purely, not unimportantly, headaches, and obsessions so as to help make other peoples’ lives more meaningful? The intent of this book is to try to address exactly those questions: How can we live less self- centered, “Live the questions now.
