I learned to be more hospitable to other worldviews and religions.

My dear brother from Hoosier-land, Father Dave Denny, cofounder of the Desert Foundation, has offered us stripped-down insights that can come to someone only after years of daily contemplative practice:

“I love [the desert’s] physical characteristics, its ‘body,’ from canyons to cactus wrens and curve-billed thrashers, from saguaros to scorpions. Its ecosystem is ancient, raw, and elegantly intertwined. And what I love about the inner deserts is that they have taught me by depriving me of my narrow worldview, introducing me to unimaginable space and beauty. Hollowed out, I learned to be more hospitable to other worldviews and religions. Their is space.”
