B5 Pictures of God

All language about the Divine is metaphorical. Various pictures or metaphors are found in the teachings and traditions of Christianity (or any other religion). Which "pictures of God" fill your mind? This makes a tremendous difference in how you feel about the Divine and about how you treat yourself, other people, and the world. We will look at several ways of picturing the Divine and see how each of these influences our lives. This course is presented from a Christian perspective, but people of any religious tradition (or none) are welcome. The recent book The Divine Dance by Richard Rohr is one of the inspirations for this course.
