18 March 2015
There is a whole conversation held about understanding God and God’s purpose. How we change our understanding of God as we grow and develop. From a man with a beard on a throne, through to asking for specific items we know we need, to the Almighty and powerful deity who claims our very selves and forgives.
“In whatever way or state you understand Mister God, so you diminish his size. He becomes an understandable entity among other understandable entities. So Mister God keeps on shedding bits all the way through your life until the time comes when you admit freelyand honestly that you don’t understand Mister God at all. At this point you have let Mister God be his proper size – and wham! – there he is, laughing at you.”
Imagine God chuckles as we realise a ‘proper size’ unencumbered by even our imagination.
The Rev’d Canon Simon Moor – Vicar of Huddersfield Parish Church
Even in prophesy there is laughter!
The morning prayer reading from the Old Testament was from. Isaiah 28 – a section read thus and was repeated a second time:
Therefore the word of the Lord will be to them,
‘Precept upon precept, precept upon precept,
line upon line, line upon line,
here a little, there a little’;
The first time I smiled, the second time mirth was bubbling up. Old MacDonald had a farm and “Everywhere a little, little!” Well it Just jumped into my mind and out through my chuckle muscle.
Does God titter? Can spirituality laugh.
I hope so!
