When we situate spirituality in ourselves and not God’s divine embrace, we feel responsible to nourish our own spirituality. . . . When we situate spirituality in God’s embrace, the church and its worship are seen as sources that nourish the spiritual life, not by what the church and its worship demand of us but by what they reveal to us.

-Robert E. Webber, The Divine Embrace: Recovering the Passionate Spiritual Life
(Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Books, 2006), 220.
