Christianity is a Process

“Christianity is not something to be attained.  It is something to be obtained.  And here it is – ready and waiting for you this very day.  And yet, you must not expect any cut and dried formula or set of rules about how to become a Christian, or how to feel the reality of God’s presence in your life.  It’s not like the recipe for baking a cake.  It’s more like being born – or falling in love.  It’s a process – a growing thing – unfolding, continuing.  You don’t arrive all at once – But you do get on the right road – and then keep going.”

– Peter Marshall, Mr Jones, Meet the Master (1959: Peter Davies, London), pp. 164-5
