Breathe in, breathe out

In his book Ordinary Saints: An Introduction to the Christian Life, Robert Benne compares the Christian life to the natural act of breathing.  He writes, “The Christian life is like breathing in ( pulling our souls into the life-sustaining power of the Spirit) and breathing out (expending that life-giving power to others).  The Christian life cannot function without both actions.”  I met Professor Benne when I spent a semester at the Lutheran School of Theology in Chicago, IL.  He was a very hospitable and welcoming person.
