What is God – Part 6 – God as a Metaphorical “Helper”

Before addressing this new topic, let’s take a moment to review where we have been. Some of you will see God as a purposive entity, one who monitors events in our lives and acts accordingly. I, and probably some of you, think of God as a metaphor to help us explain and, possibly act upon, our experiences of transcendent mystery. So far, we have talked about metaphors of God as “Creator,” Almighty, Shaddai, Source, Mind, Will. And we have explored images of God as “Holy,” Glory, Kavod, Harmony.
