Interesting guest post on the Jesus Creed blog. I'd be interested in your thoughts.
I know that for me, I require vast amounts of peace and quiet and space in order to function at my best. This is probably my biggest challenge in parenting small children. I was talking to a friend who asked, "Can you have alone time when Will naps?" Well, yes, but that is just a drop in the bucket compared to what I need. And that need can feel almost as strong as the need to sleep--it's hard to override. But if I'm not functioning at my best, it's only my family who realizes this. I wonder how much more of a struggle it is for people in a professional/ministry setting to feel like they need to operate in ways that are counter to their personalities?
I think the questions about how personality affects our spiritual practices are also very interesting!
