The Ordinary


From Doug Ottati’s Reforming Protestantism: “What we should notice…is an impetus towards the sanctification of the ordinary and a correspondent, mundane disciplining of the spiritual. The spiritual is not a life apart, but rather, a quality of all living that both forms ordinary life and comes to expression in it….Properly understood and properly reformed, the ordinary is spiritual and the spiritual is ordinary. ‘There is no such thing as a profane or merely secular order from which God is absent, and in which God is not served.’”
