“We seek and we are found. We call and we are called. We give and we are given. We study, we form groups, we meditate. We pray. All this is good, but the heart of the matter lies elsewhere. There is only one universe, one search, one call, one love, one gift. Returning it in the form of the gift of ourselves, we recover not only what we have lost but the seed of the world yet to come. Then the way is clear and simple. Chosen from the foundation of the world, we are called ‘to the praise of the glory of his grace.’"— Christopher Bamford, “The Gift of the Call,” in The Best American Spiritual Writing 2005, edited by Philip Zaleski (2005)
