How do we relate to a God who hides?
This is the core question that I want to explore in my next book. I have been thinking about this topic for quite some time and I have started to sculpt the book’s first chapters.
Here is what I desire from you: I have come to a point where I need the infusion of new thoughts. I have been blessed with the most insightful and creative network of friends. Would you please offer below any half-baked, poorly written thoughts on this important topic?
Please share your ideas in the comments below.
- Why does God hide from us?
- Is God shy? Aloof? Disinterested? Busy?
- Why does God “show up” so unexpectedly when God does?
- What causes us to miss God?
I was taught to pretend in my religious upbringing. However, when most of the people I meet are given even a moment to get beyond their well-rehearsed religious answers, they quietly (and sometimes angrily) admit that 95% of their life (or 99%), it seems as if God is not tangibly present at all.
Why is that?
