"Those who live in celebration 'are concerned with questions of proper management and joyous celebration.' Instead of deliverance, they seek constancy and sustainability. 'The well-off do not expect their faith to begin in a cry, but rather in a song. They do not expect or need intrusion, but they rejoice in stability [and the] durability of a world and social order that have been beneficial to them.' Praise is the language of celebration."
