Living Spiritual Rhythms - March 16

Divine action may take place within the complexity of what is already given in the world in order to persuade us to be receptive to what is “actually possible.” A valid perception of DA is thus likely to be “seen” in broader patterns of potential God directions, rather than the specific details of what we assume as the “God acts” for us as individuals. The latter comprises a theological superstition, which often dominates in Christian circles when it comes to God’s “intervention” in our daily lives. This won’t do when it comes to formulating a legitimate account of DA. We simply need to do more work on this monumental issue, while embracing mystery, but not creating it when it’s not there.
