Experience and Doctrine

When people encounter the living God in worship or through another aspect of our ministries, they hunger to know the God they have met. This inner urge to "know God" is what doctrine or theology addresses.

Experience, by itself, is like a river without banks. We call that a flood. Conversely, doctrine without experience is like the banks of a river without any water. We call that a drought.


-- Michael Foss in A Servant's Manual
