What I have long thought and felt …

A reader writes:

I am a Catholic priest in a very conservative diocese who often feels frustrated. “We need a new way of talking, of being Christian,” I often say to friends. Your books (especially A New Kind of Christianity and Naked Spirituality) give expression to what I have long thought and felt! Your words give me hope and clarity. Thank you! God bless your work.

It’s fascinating to see resonance across traditions – both in the frustration of some and the resistance of others. What might that resonance tell us?
