Lenten Lessons: life as a quest

Image hosting by Photobucket
Walker Percy, the late novelist and metaphysician, once said in coversation, "I have learned that the most important difference between people is between those for whom life is a quest and those for whom it is not." The vision of a quest confers meaning on our lives. It enables us to see all that happens as moving us closer to or further from our goal, and to make distinctions between what helps and hinders us in our journey.
