Just Like It Always Was

This evening we watched a dvd that was a cross between a travelogue and a food show. It was a show about sandwiches across the nation. A month ago we watched a similar show about ice cream stands. Besides some majorly delicious looking sandwiches, one thing jumped out at me.

Over and over and over again, the customers at these popular little restaurants said things like, "This place hasn't changed a bit since I came here as a child." Or "What others restaurants around here have the same decor they had 50 years ago?" Or the owners would say, "We haven't changed the recipe one bit. This sandwich has been our secret for success for decades."

Nobody was looking for "improvements."
Doing the same old thing was cherished.

But we don't even have that much sense about the life-giving liturgy.
