My Devotion Time

“And scripture that doesn’t in some way dislocate our imaginings of success, victory, terror, goodness, and beauty is scripture that has yet to be read properly. Scripture calls us out of Egypt and every form of enslaving culture. But when we’ve reduced its liberating word to our own terms, our own idolatries, we fail to apprehend its summons to freedom” (David Dark, The Gospel According to America: A Meditation on a God-blessed, Christ-haunted Idea (Louisville, KY: Westminster John Knox Press, 2005), 147).
