The Truth of God

This is a quote from Debra Dean Murphy in her book Teaching That Transforms: Worship as the Heart of Christian Education (a book I highly recommend and am reading again since two years ago):

The truth of God– what catechesis seeks to impart– is not a thing to be grasped but a way of life to be embodied. This way of life– living true to the cruciform pattern of Jesus’ own life– is a doxological practice, learned over time in the worshipping body gathered regularly for prayer and praise.

One thought on “The Truth of God

  1. I keep running across the same idea! Evangelical Christianity focuses on Salvation and salvation alone, but the communities I’ve been involved in have paid little attention to spiritual formation. cool quote!
