I have only just discovered this group though I am a long time user of CCEL. Although not of a religious family background, just after I became a Christian at 21 I moved to live in the desert in the middle of Australia for 4 years. 3000km2 and 6 people. I had a Bible, a set of theological dictionaries and the book of common prayer. This time shaped my relationship with God and also with the churches. On returning to civilisation I found that the mystics were the only people who could really speak to my experience of God, prayer, people, life. I took them as my mentors and have acquired a large collection of texts. I am really looking forward to seeing how other people respond in order to learn and understand more.
