Ascent 6


Book 3  The nights of hope and love in the active night of the spirit.  Response 6

3.1-3.23

We will follow your suggestions and have you read the original text.  Book 3 is more organized for the nights of hope and love and should be easier to follow the nights of hope and love since we just finished the night of faith.  Please read Book 3; ch1-23; pp. 267-309.  I will post reflections and questions as before but since I will be away for 10 days, I wanted you to get started on the reading.  Keep a journal or outline noting parts that particularly resonated with you and parts that you found difficult or confusing.  John is giving a lot of detail so try not to get lost in the details.  That is why I think an outline will help so you can see the parallels and keep your focus on the main ideas.  This is still the active night of the spirit.  Why do you think John dealt with the active night of faith first?
