The last way of thinking about God that we will be discussing in the series "What do we talk about, when we talk about God" is God as event.
So when an event takes place in your life, the way you see the world changes, in a sense, absolutely nothing has changed and yet absolutely nothing remains the same.
Usually it is prophets -or in the words of Jacques Lacan - symptoms that we must listen to that keeps on challenging us to these moments of change. For if you are caught up in your glory days, a nudge will be missed... The nudge is where God is, God is present in the event, when you love your neighbour, when you wash your enemies feet, when you forgive, when you change.
It is therefore of the utmost importance that we keep it real, keep on reforming , being born again, again, again and again.
God as Event. This Sunday at Alpine, 6pm.
