New Lutheran Quote of the Day

[The song of praise] is not only performed in the presence of the Triune God but also involves the three persons of the holy Trinity.  It is an alien, counter-cultural activity, which is at home in no particular cultural setting here on earth.  Rather, it is heavenly in its origin and orientation, for it involves our participation with the angels in the heavenly liturgy. -- Dr. John Kleinig, "Singing with Grace in our Hearts" Teach Me Thy Way, O Lord, pp. 108, 9.
