What Do I Think When I Think God? I Try Not To. Here’s Why…

What do I think when I think God? I try not to. It makes sense to try not to think too much of God, does it not? I mean, how does one think of God except in ways that are limiting, loaded with ideas and assumptions that are incomplete at best and, most often, just […]

Knowing God: How to Know God

Knowing God: Is it Possible? There is no religious belief that, once you know it or say you believe it, will magically unlock the door to God. So, I would advise you to remember this: the impulse you feel to know God…that impulse IS God.  But, having said that, don’t get too attached even to […]

The Kingdom of God: What Is It?

“Seek first the kingdom,” counseled Jesus, “…and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33). When I read these words, I have several questions. 1. What is the Kingdom? 2. Why should the Kingdom be sought? 3. If I were so inclined, where would I seek the Kingdom? 4. What “things shall be […]

Know God – You Can, You Know

How to Know God Or, Making Room for More…of God Matthew 22:1-14; Philippians 4:1-9 How to know God. I get that question a lot. I’ve asked that question a lot. Jesus once told a parable of a Wedding Feast (Matthew 22:1-14). A king prepared a huge party…a wedding party…for his son. When the party was […]

You Are What You Seek…

Or, so said Saint Francis. Rumi, the Sufi poet put it slightly differently, “What you seek is seeking you.” And, Jesus said, “Seek first the Kingdom.” So, what is the Kingdom? It is not the Church. Not heaven either. Are you disappointed? Don’t be.  What the Kingdom actually is…is better than both. One day, when I […]

Each Creature Lives into Its Own Nature…

Mechthild of Magdeburg once said, “A fish cannot drown in water; a bird does not fall in air. Each creature God made must live in its own true nature.” Then that’s what the writers of Genesis meant, is it not? “And God breathed into human nostrils the breath of life, and humans became living beings” […]

Life’s Greatest Discovery…the Joy of Oneness

The Sufi poet, Ghalib, said, “For the raindrop, joy is entering the river.” When you and I first appear, this is how we arrive – in oneness with all there is.  Which is why, when you look into the eyes of an infant, you get this feeling you’re looking at the face of God. You […]

God…and this Moment…

I finished running around our neighborhood yesterday and, as I slowed to a brisk walk the final few hundred yards, I suddenly became present. That is to say, I became aware that I had just finished running nearly one hour in length and did so completely unaware of my surroundings. I was present and yet […]

Are You and God One?…

If Jesus and God were one, as he claimed they were (John 10:30). And, if Jesus prayed, as of course he did (John 17:21) that you and God would be one, too. Then, are you and God one? The implied answer is “Of course.” But how would you know? Is there some proof? The fact […]

How to Know God

“I want to know the mind of God,” said Einstein. Me, too. But, for much of my adult life, knowing God, knowing mind, or feeling connected to something grander than myself escaped me, eluded, even evaded me. Then, one day, something happened to me and I made a remarkable discovery. Meister Eckhart was right: “The […]

How To Know God

Religions have failed humanity. So has the religion, Christianity. While they start out right, they end up wrong. I’m a Christian theologian and much of what I see in the Christian church today, across all denominational lines, is nothing short of insane. If you want to know how to know God, the church is very […]
