Topic

Henry Klippenstein gave the first of two talks entitled “How do we experience God?”  Since Peter suggested that we are to be “participants in the divine nature” (2 Peter 1:3-4) and since Jesus prayed in Gethsemane that it be possible for us to be one with God (John 17:16-23), just how do we experience our God and participate in ‘the divine nature’?  After the renowned scientist Pascal experienced God most vividly, he was convinced that we experience God more through the heart than through reason.  A scientist of our time, James Tour, also reported experiencing God in an intense way that was clearly life-changing.  Remembering that scripture teaches that we learn about God through experience and not by reading or creeds, Henry’s next talk (March 8, 2020) will explore two contrasting approaches to experiencing God.  [JEK]
