Identify Your Theology:
We've been exploring spiritual belief questions about the divine this week. Yesterday, I asked about whether or not your god has feminine qualities and I shared about my own longing for a mother god.
Today, we'll turn our attention to our next question, but before we do, head on over to your retreat room so you can relax and let go of any of the day’s stress. Or listen to your meditation right here...
Tell me more about what your god (or goddess) is like.
Based on what you believe about the divine, how would you describe the divine’s qualities or attributes? Is the divine good? Kind?
"Growing up, I often wondered what God was like. For me, church was a wipeout experience that only left me with more questions than answers. So I often wondered, 'God, if you exist, what are you like? Who are you – really?'" ~Living on the Edge
"We often use the problem of evil to show a deity that is all powerful, all knowing, and all good/loving, to be illogical. But where do we get these definitions? Are they reasonable attributes of a deity? What traits/attributes/characteristics is a deity required to have? If a deity is required to have certain attributes, why?" ~Apprentice in DebatingChristianity.com
Now that you’ve read today’s question and a quote or two to get you thinking, head on back into the mini-retreat to close it and to see the journal questions and the blessing I’ve written for you.
