Most of the learning is done, and most of the encounters occur on the margins; in the outskirts; in the dowdy forgotten provinces. And that, in Scripture and in life is where our hippie, non-mainstream, iconoclastic God is to be found. Don't look for him in constitutions or palaces, he loathes them. Look for him at the edge of the town, at the end of the days, at the center of a party so far off-center that your mother would be appalled.
Charles Foster, The Sacred Journey, p150)
