New Lutheran Quote of the Day
We do not worship alone in this time and this place and this language. We worship with every generation of the church in one unified liturgy where Jesus Christ and heaven itself are present in word and sacrament. For liturgy to become associated with a particular place in a particular time would seriously hinder the church's expression of the eschatological character of its worship. In every age, liturgy bespeaks a story that is transcultural and trans-temporal. The faithful tell a story in the liturgy which they did not invent but which they have made their own. - Arthur Just, The Devotional Life of the Pastor, in Teach Me Thy Way, O Lord, p. 95.
