God’s embrace

I urge us all to stop looking at ourselves for the nourishment of our own spirituality and turn to the church and its worship to disclose God’s embrace and thus nourish our spirituality. The church, by its very existence, is the life of God’s embrace, and worship, when properly understood, is the continual experience of God’s embrace, reaching out from the hard wood of the cross.
