God of the Humdrum

From the Lincolnshire Church newsletter:

If God is not in your typewriter as well as your hymnbook,
there is something wrong with your religion.

If God does not enter your kitchen,
there is something wrong with your kitchen.

If you can't take God into your recreation,
there is something wrong with your play.

If God for you does not smile,
there is something wrong with your idea of God.

We all believe in the God of the heroic.
What we need most these days is the God of the humdrum -
the commonplace, the everyday.

- Peter Marshall
