Trading the Vibrant Life of Jesus for a Ritualistic Religion Called Christianity.

I stumbled across this great article today on the Franciscan ‘Companions of Jesus’ community website.

I have been contemplating recently the difference between an intellectual and an experiential, relational view of Christianity. I’m not sure where ritualism fits into that spectrum, but I can understand why people might be tempted to substitute ritualism for authentic experience, or to seek authentic experience by way of ritual.

“The life of Christian community isn’t found by sharing religion together, but by embracing a journey of growing relationship with him that transforms us by his grace and power.”
