Encounter with the Holy

“It can be helpful to imagine our human encounter with the Holy as life in a border country. It is a country in which, at privileged moments access, we find ourselves looking over from the everyday world into another, into a world that undergirds the everyday world, limits it, defines it, gives it coherence and meaning, drives it. Yet this hidden world is not another world, but the familiar world discovered afresh.”
-L. William Countryman, Living on the Border of the Holy
