Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


More than a feeling

Easter Sunday at King of Peace

The most common mistake Christians make in worship today is seeking an experience, rather than seeking God. They look for a feeling, and if it happens, they conclude that they have worshipped. Wrong. In fact, God often removes our feelings so we won't depend on them.

Seeking a feeling, even the feeling of closeness to Christ, is not worship.

Rick Warren (1954- )

    Wow! This one really hit home for me, Frank! So often I'm looking for that "experience" instead of letting God in. Great food for thought.

    -your sister-in-law and sister in Christ,
