Another interpretation I have heard used for the first chapter of the Gospel of St. John is using ‘conversation’ instead of the ‘Logos’ or ‘Word’.
This interpretation doesn’t give a complete translations but makes you think.
In the beginning was the Conversation, and the Conversation was with God, and the Conversation was God. The Conversation was with God in the beginning.
The Conversation became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
When we pray, we indeed become part of that conversation.
