"Worship is primary theology. It is also home which, as the saying goes, is the place where they have to take you in. There is no one who is not welcome in God’s house, and no amount of human pettiness or pompous religiosity can alter that fact. ‘I work,’ God says in Isaiah 43, ‘and who can hinder it?’ When people come together to worship, they come as God knows them, with their differences, their wildly various experiences and perspectives. And by some miracle, they sing, and listen, and pray as one."
Kathleen Norris, Amazing Grace: A Vocabulary of Faith
"At the end of the day, when I am lying in bed and I know the chances of any of our theology being exactly right are a million to one, I need to know that God has things figured out, that if my math is wrong we are still going to be okay. And wonder is the feeling we get when we let go of our silly answers, our mapped out rules that we want God to follow. I don’t think there is any better worship than wonder."
Donald Miller, from Blue Like Jazz
