Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi

My brother-in-law Gabe has a good post up on casual evangelicalism, liturgy, and the majesty of God.

All of these things are grounded not in the details of a particular culture but in the details of human nature. To understand the wisdom of the liturgy is to understand that we are whole persons, that our bodies are part of us, and that what we do with them (kneeling, dressing them up, etc.) actually matters. It is to realize that the tradition and ritual of the church are grounded not in anachronistic legalisms but in living truths.

Read it.
