New Lutheran Quote of the Day

We do not invent spirituality for ourselves; we do not cobble it together to suit our desire for personal fulfillment.  Its power does not depend on us or on our performance.  Rather, we receive our spiritual life from others and are drawn into it, just as we are initiated into family life and marriage.  So I learned to pray and meditate by being taken to church and included in our family devotions. -- John Kleinig, *Grace upon Grace* p. 9.
