Non Life-changing

I was listening to an interview with the new Poet Laureate, W. S. Merwin. He was discussing his new position, and he said, "I don't want it to change my life, but I do want to contribute what I can to it."

I think sometimes we approach church in the same way. We'll contribute to it, but we don't want it to change our life.

That's really not commitment -- it's participation. Do we want to participate in church, or do we want to commit our lives to God?
