I remember going to seminary thinking that I would find God there. But I didn?t. I read people?s thoughts about God in books and wrote papers on their thoughts, but I never actually met God in seminary. Where I met God was in my encounters with the other people. Not really surprising when you stop to think of it. Of course, we are more apt to encounter God through other people because God incarnated as one of us in Jesus. The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth. Consequently, it is through other people that we are most likely to catch a glimpse of God just as others encountered God in Jesus. Throughout the years of my ministry and life, that has been my continuing experience. I have also met God through my own failures and losses, met God when I went through my divorce, even met God when I was in depression. God came to me through others who came to me and offered hope. But I never met God because of what someone else told me I should believe about God or in any doctrine about God.
