Unfortunately, in my experience it seems that Christians treat spiritual conversations like The Oregon Trail. When we reach a river that must be crossed, rather than taking the time to build a bridge, we either balk and turn back, or barge forward without thinking and end up drowning.
"Everyone is on a spiritual journey. We can’t help it. God created us that way...But here’s the key—while spiritual journeys are personal, they’re not private. We are designed as spiritual and relational beings. That means even a spiritual journey will be enhanced in relationship....The inescapable correlative of all this is rather simple: people need people in their spiritual journeys.”
