The New Blog, Explanations

I feel moved to create this new blog as a fresh start, after more than a year of hiatus from the Quaker blog-o-sphere. My first Quaker blog (http://quakerspeak.blogspot.com) still stands, but has been retired.

The title of this blog, "That God", will make more sense after the next post right after this, where I attempt to articulate what I mean by "God" in the first place.

Over the past few years I have been coming to realize more and more that to me, God is an experience, often a verb in my life. The URL of this blog comes from that, the idea of God as a verb - to God. It's humorous to think of it's actual use, "You got Godded!" or "I need to go God for awhile", for which I'm sure there could be a variety of interpretations. "God that" could also have a variety of interpretations, and I will leave it up to the reader to decide which seems most fitting. Perhaps it makes no sense at all, and that's ok too. If nothing else it is an attempt to introduce a new way of thinking about the concept of God.

I could explain more, but I will let my posts speak for themselves, whenever they occur.

Love and Light,
Claire

Hey Claire, welcome back to blogs, glad to see you. I've often thought about you this last year and what I know mostly second-hand about what you've been going through. Looking forward to more reading. Your friend, Martin the Quaker Ranter
