The radical liturgical thought for the day

Okay, so we acknowledge that the sanctuary where God meets with man is wherever His Church gathers, right? (At this point, I might throw in a reference to the single stem of the Old Covenant lampstand versus the seven stems of the lampstands in Revelation...but I won't.) We also acknowledge that God is infinite and that there's always more of Him to display, right? So, could it be that different local churches will tend to emphasize certain aspects of God in their liturgy? And, could it be that this is an intentional feature, rather than a bug? That, maybe, the mosaic of all the churches worshipping together is closer to being an adequate picture of God than any single church could be? And, therefore, could it be that we could all just back off a bit and be more patient and flexible with each other? Maybe?
