“We are physical creatures, and creatures of routine. A specific daily schedule should be established. The day should be divided so that there is time for meditation or prayer, time for meals and relationships, time for labor, time for learning, and time for rest. Time for labor and for rest will consume two-thirds of our hours. But eight hours a day remain remain for study, meals, sharing, and prayer. It is the wise use of these eight hours that is most often neglected.”
Always We Begin Again by John McQuiston (Morehouse Publishing, 1996), p.47.
