This Sunday…Last week’s talk on spirituality was ‘big-picture’ and a bit theological. All things are sustained and held together by God’s power (His Spirit), so our being (and the existence of all created things) depends totally and utterly on God. This is our starting point for what we are talking about when we talk about spiritual matters. (By the way, to say God is in all things is not to say all things are God, e.g. while God holds the trees together, the trees are not God.)
This week we will be asking, ‘if God is in all things, how might we expect to experience him?’ I intend to use less 'theological' language and speak to issues common to us all. I want to explore how God is at work through situations we know God has opinion on, but somehow forget that God is also conspiring within them to speak and shape and achieve his purposes.
