Slow Walking with Jesus

Consider this point made by W. E. Adams, C. S. Lewis' spiritual director for a season:

We can advance along the road to perfection only by walking closely with [Jesus]. And as we watch His way of dealing with the countless problems and troubles that beset His life, we achieve wisdom as to how to meet our own. But to walk with Jesus is to walk with a slow, unhurried pace. Hurry is the death of prayer and only impedes and soils our work. It never advances it.


Alan Fadling, An Unhurried Life (IVP, 2013), p. 93
