Henri J. M. Nouwen said:
“The church is not an institution forcing us to follow its rules. It is a community of people inviting us to still our hunger and thirst at its tables.”
Nouwen’s comment is not a plot against the church we attend. We worship and adhere to the Christian teaching where we feel the most comfortable. No church is to be so rigid that it doesn’t first allow the hungering and the thirsting to be fed.
