Hi Chuck. Greetings.
As I reflect on your question, ironically, contemplative spirituality reminds me of the prayer life that I experiences as a Muslim. I practices Islam for about a decade so the opportunity to return to a more regimented prayer life recalls my practice of Islam’s 5 daily prayers. Thus, practicing the Daily Office reminds me that the gifts of a daily call to prayer at regular intervals is available to us as Christians as well—which is refreshing and useful to me in this moment of national anxiety and uncertainty.
