What Do We Do When Our God No Longer Fits?

God Box

I prepared this Reflective Question for a class I’m teaching on World Wisdom.

What Do We Do. . .When Our God No Longer Fits?

In a Brain (a concept, idea, worldview)

In a Box (a holy place, sacred address)

In a Book (a scripture)

In a Belief (a religion)

In a Boundary or Border (cultural, national, geographical, gender)

Does Your God. . .

~Grow Bigger?

~Get Smaller?

~Dissolve or Get Absorbed into the Cosmos?

~Evaporate into Air or Thought?

~Disappear and/or Re-Appear someplace else, as something or someone else?

When Your God No Longer Fits and These Questions Arise, Are You:

~Afraid?

~Defensive?

~Uncertain?

~Lost?

~Open to Wonder?

~Exhilarated?
