Theoblogger Richard Beck has a beautiful post about his worship home, a small service called Freedom:
Another thing I like about Freedom: One of the church leaders and I have a running conversation (and he might have this conversation with more than just me). A few months ago he came up to me and asked, “Richard, do you know why we come to church?” “Why?” “So God can kick us in the ass.” Every week it’s a variation on that theme. “Richard, did God kick you in the ass today?”I smile and say yes.

And if you haven’t yet read Richard’s book, Unclean, do yourself a favor and pick it up.
