Life is funny. At times it is so good; just can’t get enough. At other times, the oncoming train looks like an inviting out. We all swing about in our moods and attitudes. This is true with almost everything; including God.
God is not visible. Ignoring God is possible. Good things can happen without any known reference to God. It seems as if it is possible to live without God. But it’s not. Avoiding God is only temporary. We all come back to the gnawing questions of meaning for now, questions about where did we come from, questions about what matters and where are we headed. The question of God seems inescapable. We can’t seem to live without Him.
But most people, particulary university students, are not all that focused on God. It is hard to live with God. There are problems with having someone to whom we should submit. We are learning how to take charge of our own thoughts, our own choices. God over us seems to get in the way. And then there is the partying issue. How can I be focused on God and available for a really exciting relationship or party or whatever? It’s just so hard to live with God.
Can’t live with Him, can’t live without Him. I guess it is easiest just to postpone the God question when it pops up and get on with life.
But maybe easy doesn’t equal best. Maybe there is an understanding of God that incorporates the difficulties of integrating life experiences such that we can live with God. Maybe I should not avoid God but should be intentional about considering God even if it seems hard.
This site is intended to explore that possibility.
