Identify Your Theology:
We are turning our attention to our next question, today, 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, you might want to just listen to it right here...
Which God is Your God?
Now that you created god, in yesterday’s post, let’s talk about the one you may actually believe is real. What do you believe about the divine? Do you think of the divine as male or female? Or spirit?
"All the theologies ever imagined ~ no matter how beautiful, powerful, or complex ~ are only descriptions. They are not the reality itself. In other words, ideas about God are not God. ... Furthermore, people may not even be having the same experience of the Divine. Perhaps we each experience a different part or portion of the Divine, the part that speaks most deeply & personally to us alone." ~Joyce & River Higginbotham, Paganism: An Introduction to Earth-Centered Religions
"Deep down, there’s a place within each of us that is made for one thing—a relationship with God. No matter how hard we try to cover it up or fill it with something else, we will never be satisfied. Our hearts will remain restless until they find their home with God. That deep, hidden part of you is there, even if you haven’t realized it until now." ~In Touch Ministries
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 blow out our candle, close the retreat and see the journal questions and the blessing I’ve recorded for you.
