Sacramenetal Prayer

This is a very mind altering quote from Richard Foster.

    “Over the centuries an unfortunate and…completely unnecessary division has arisen among Christians. On the one side are those who stress liturgy and sacrament and written prayer. On the other side are those who stress intimacy and informality and spontaneous prayer. And each group looks at the other in pious condescension. It is here that we need the holy conjunction ‘and.’ We need not be forced to choose on over another.” – Richard Foster, “Prayer” pg. 105.

I prayer that God shows us not to be so divided and judgmental.From the Quakers to the Catholics, and from the Baptist to the Anglicans, may you see each other as brothers and contributors to each others spiritual journey.
