These words are part of a Chinese proverb, which could relate seamlessly with Monastic Stability and Christian Disciplines. In our present situation of chaos and uncertainty, we need grounded, mature and faithful people to practice ‘sitting in the fire’ or in the whirlwind, able to listen to the still small voice of God. We can look at Patience, Persistence (or Perseverance) and various forms of Practice which can help us be a calming, still centre amid apparent confusion.
Patient Persistent Practice
