Mark Lanier: Your God is Still Too Small - Bio-linguistics & the Communicating God
Talks on challenging how we think of the one true God, Yaweh. Starting with the 1952, Christian classic 'Your God is Too Small' by British clergyman J. B. Phillips, Mark Lanier explores the destructive ideas of God, so many of us hold to.
Summary: If we are not hearing from God, it is not his fault! Words form the basis of how we think as well as how we interact with others. Accordingly, it is fair to ask questions of how language and communication figure into our understanding of and interactions with God. We can examine our own interactive communications with God, both as recipient of his messages as well as senders of our own. We are recipients when we hear from God. We offer feedback and are also senders as we pray to him. We examine our faith in this area to see whether our God is still too small.
