Read this passage today on one of the blogs that I follow:
Christians are engaged in a whole set of revolutionary, subversive practices, while failing to notice their significance. Simply to say that Christians are those who always go to church on Sundays may be a more significant practice than we realize… In a world where work is integral to worth, where the majority of our neighbors see Sunday morning as a time to go to the lake or to mow their grass, just getting up, getting dressed, and going to church becomes a sort of non-violent protest, a way of saying, ‘We want a different world than the one you serve.’ Just teaching our children that we go to church, without being able to explain the ‘deeper significance,’ might have immense political significance.
