Just started reading Donald Miller’s Searching for God Knows What. I’m only through two chapters so far, but it’ a really good read.Here’s a noteworthy quote that could possibly simplify so many things we make difficult:
Some would say formulas are how we interact with God, that going through motions and jumping through hoops are how a person acts out his spirituality. This method of interaction, however, seems odd to me, because if I want to hang out with my friend Tuck, I don’t stomp my foot three times, turn around, and say his name over and over like a mantra, lighting candles and getting myself in a certain mood. I just call him. In this way, formulas presuppose God is more a computer or a circus monkey than an intelligent Being. I realize that sounds harsh, but it’s true.
I want to just talk with God.
