I bought a copy of “Blue Like Jazz” by Donald Miller. Nashville: Thomas Nelson, 2003. I read it some time ago but this quote from the author’s note has stuck with me:

I never liked jazz music because jazz music doesn’t resolve. But I was outside the Bagdad Theater in Portland one night when I saw a man playing the saxaphone. I stood there for fifteen minutes, and he never opened his eyes. After that I liked jazz music. Sometimes you have to watch somebody love something before you can love it yourself. It is as if they are showing you the way.

Some years ago I was blessed to be in a church where people who loved God also knew how to worship him. They showed me the way.
