Aidan was forever reminding them that they could not talk about God if they did not talk to Him. Much of the schooling had to be directed to the Presence and not theories if Him. They had to deal with the reality of God in His world, and not in fantasy.Flame in my heart - St Aidan for today by David Adam
Powerful words indeed. We need to ensure that we have our own experience of the Presence... and not rely on the experiences of others. We should be shaped by this reality in our own individual lives... and not from the direction of others.
