on preserving fellowship

17 . June . 2011

‘when a family lives close together
in a constricted space
and the individual does not have
the quietness he needs,
regular times of quiet
are absolutely necessary.

after a time of quiet
we meet others in a different and fresh way.

many a household fellowship will be
able to provide for the individual’s
need to be alone,
and thus preserve the fellowship itself
from injury,
only by adopting a regular order.
