Could God be bigger and better than how you imagine God to be?

More than 60 years ago, an English clergyman by the name of J.B. Phillips published a little book that it is still widely read.  He titled it “Your God is Too Small”.  That title summarizes the message of the book very simply – God is far bigger and better than we imagine.  Recently I was reminded of J.B. Phillip’s book when I read quotations from two other writers.  One, a German mystic, who lived 700 years ago, and the other, a Canadian still living.   The first, Meister Eckart, prayed these words: To the logical mind, “God, rid me of god,”  […]
