'...the miracle they are waiting for is that he will not just say that God is present, because they have heard it said before, and it has made no great and lasting difference to them, will not just speak the word of joy, hope, comedy, because they have heard it spoken before too and have spoken it among themsleves, but that he will somehow make it real to them.They wait for him to make God real to them through the sacrament of words...'
Frederick Buechner, Telling the Truth, p.40.
