TheoCenTriC Stumbling Toward Christ

Here, There, and Everywhere

H

We are born in union with God and we “live and move and have our being” in God throughout our lives (Acts 17:28). It is so essential to our being that we could not exist without it…

The problem for most of us is that we don’t realize how united we are with God. Except in rare moments of mystical experience, most of us don’t generally feel such intimacy with the Divine. Even if we believe devoutly that God is present with us, our usual experience is that we are “here” and God is “there,” loving and gracious perhaps, but irrevocably separate. “We just don’t understand ourselves,” says Teresa, “or know who we are.” [We prefer] the more comfortable, controllable world of “God and me,” rather than the vague, vulnerable realm of “God in me and I in God.”

After 24 years of pastoring, I continue to stumble toward Christ, and invite you to do the same. Prayerfully hoping the material on this site will aid you to this end. Grace and peace!
