Looking for God is intensely personal and yielding to God is often surprising. Fisher says, "Confronting the genuine joys we experience and the agony and sorrows we endure, we reach out to connect our lives with a source of meaning, an object of devotion that will anchor our lives in something more lasting than ourselves." The Good News is that God is there for us even before we seek God, because God loves us. We respond by seeing what God offers, because in so doing, we will have a deeper understanding of what is real, what true, and what matters. Fisher says that faith is embedded in a community of faith that nourishes, refines, and confirms this Good News in daily practices of Christian living.
