I fleshed out our group’s “what” pages by giving credit to Richard Foster for the five areas of spiritual growth, and adding this quote:
We are a little like the gymnast who can excel in the floor exercise, the balance beam, and the parallel bars but who cannot compete on the high bar and the vaulting horse. Such a person is simply not very balanced in gymnastic skills. Likewise, we are imbalanced and ineffective if we excel in, say, evangelism and prayer but lack holiness of life and compassion for the poor. Each tradition — even our favorite one — will throw us out of balance if it is all we know. Balance comes when we strive to learn from all five, when we recognize their importance, and when we set out to make them a part of our lives.
