Liturgy as Hiding Place from God

"My friend Toby Sumpter, no enemy of robust liturgy, once wrote:  "When people come to our church 'for the liturgy' I think I will begin asking how frequently they use porn, yell at their wife, or tell lies."  On a related note, Mark Galli, in his defense of liturgy, noted that "it should not surprise us that the liturgy is also one of the best places to hide from God."  It sure is." - Wilson, Against the Church, p16.

Reminds me of the woman at the well, when confronted by Jesus about her sin, begins to discuss theology and liturgy ('where should we worship') with Him.
