New Lutheran Quote of the Day
In our spiritual journey from the font to the grave, we walk before God the Father as beggars. Yet that is only half the story. We may be beggars, but, paradoxically, we also associate with the holy angels. This wonderful paradox is confessed most clearly in the Divine Service by the curious juxtaposition of the Kyrie, "Lord, have mercy," and the Gloria, "Glory to God in the highest." -- Dr. John Kleinig, *Grace upon Grace* p. 30.
