Where are you on the God Idea Continuum?
Pretty comfortable with the God Idea and God-talk
Hmmm, God is a little more complicated
God -talk is a trigger for me
Nope, don’t buy it.
Our exploration of forgiveness requires us to take a deeper, bigger view of not only the F Word, but also this G Word. We need words and images to talk about anything, including what we refer to as “”God.” Can you recognize and honor the ways you necessarily box-in that 3rd strand whenever you put words and images to it? Can you also find ways to hold yourself accountable to a bigger, deeper perspective than the one you can have by yourself? No matter where you are at with the “concept” at a given moment?
Talk about this together! Ask someone about their responses and struggles with this and really listen.
