A Playful God of Surprises Disrupts Excessive Order, Is that your Experience?

I think this quote sums up the playfulness of the God of Surprises. Is this your experience? It is mine! "Religion degenerates into religiousity when God is absolutized...when fixed structures cannot adapt to changing circumstances. Excessive order paradoxically drifts towards chaos. which unexpectedly creates the conditions for the creative emergence of new patterns of order. The livingness of God disrupts and disfigures every stablizing structure, thereby keeping the playful whole in movement. Just when we think we have certainty of God, divinity will slip out from our evolutionary feet, and like the speed of light elude our grasp to become for us the power of the future." Sister Illia Delio in The Unbearable Wholeness of Being
