Chapter 8 Friends with God

Sara Miles talks about learning about the saint for which the church she started going to was named after. 

"Supper with God. This was what had grabbed me - and it wasn't an accident. My year of questioning drew me to lift my head and look around, more thoughtfully, at the place I'd wandered into: Saint Gregory of Nyssa, named after a fourth-century married bishop from Cappadocia, in what is now Turkey. A mystic, universalist, and humanist, Gregory had proclaimed that "the only thing worthwhile is being God's friend."" (77)
