“… prayer, rooted in Scripture, lights the way. It is a way of living, a spirituality that makes the humdrum holy and the daily the stuff of high happiness. It is a way of living that leads us to pursue life to the fullest. … the meaning of the human enterprise is for our taking if we will only follow this simple but profoundly life-altering way.”
