Each week I will blog about the upcoming discussion topic for the Staunton house church. Please let me know if you have any questions or if you would like to come on Sunday at 6:30pm. We will begin with dinner and then engage in discussion before having a creative jam/art session!
This week we are going to start with a simple, straightforward topic… God. Ha, just kidding. Well, not kidding about discussing the topic of God, just about God being a simple and straightforward topic. The idea of God is huge, expansive, confusing and overwhelming. We will begin our discussion by talking about different images we have for God. The Bible is full of different images, including God as spirit, God as mother hen, God as father, God as king, God as creator, God as lover, and many, many more. Some scholars and theologians also suggest that God can never be reduced to images or contained by our words.
On Sunday we will begin to tackle questions about God and how we can continue to be embarked on this journey together. Check out this awesome song by Gungor and begin to realize the ways you do and don’t imagine God.
