Experiencing God's presence in the life of the church
Increasingly, for young people, no longer is God confined to a particular location—a church, a liturgy, even the sacraments or scripture; they no longer believe the pastorate or the priesthood is a higher more spiritual calling. Instead, God is found in the experiences of this world—a postmodern spirituality in which the sacred is intricately woven into creaturely life.
If we truly believe in God's providence through his continual action of creation, we have no choice but to be continually in awe. We should be so in awe that we can hardly stand it. The study of this ongoing activity of God is an opportunity to experience God.
