I had many chances to meet Brennan Manning.  I was scared of what he would be like.  He was an insightful troubled follower of Jesus.  Drug and alcohol addiction were only two of the scary things about him.

I am meeting him now through one of his books “The Ragamuffin Gospel” I wish I had taken the chance and met him in person.  He is waiting for us.

“In essence, there is only one thing God asks of us-that we be men and women of prayer, people who live close to God,

people for whom God is everything and for whom God is enough.

That is the root of peace.  

We have that peace when the gracious God is all we seek.”
