This post from May 2007 by Steven Wedgeworth is among my all time favorite blog posts. It is a nice summary of God's purpose for the world.
"Christianity is a comedy, whereas all false religions are tragic. This means that Christianity moves. Christians smile and laugh, as we follow after the God who dances. Our God sings too, as the Word is enveloped in Breath. Breath is moving air, song: glorified speech. The Holy Spirit glorifies Jesus who pictures the Father.Read the whole thing.
To be like God is our telos, and so Man sings and dances. He stumbles at first and hits flat notes, but this is but the beginning. There’s 30,000 years to go after all. Infinity knows no ceiling, and thus we practice on. We sing about creation. We sing about the exodus. We glorify the Torah in the Psalms. And the Bible continues still."
