Hear the still small knock

'Behold I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me'. This is a very unusual Scripture to use at a convention. But, you know, God is unusual. And He does things in an unusual way. We become so earth bound with our finite way of thinking to His great, infinite mind till we just get one, little course set up, and we feel like we're just going fine; but if we could only look and see as God sees, how much different things would look and be to us.
And the Bible says that God works in mysterious ways, His wonders to perform.

I came to the same

I came to the same conclusion years ago and it was a turning point in my spiritual life: God is indeed unusual and works in mysterious ways, and therefore, organized religions cannot really represent Him or His ways. If someone really wants to follow God, he/she must eject themselves from the spiritual laziness, from the reliance on old religious institutions that by their nature distort the concept of God to something so usual and so non mysterious.
