Good morning, I have been reading David Bentley Hart and Marcus Borg of late and there concept of God has really caught my imagination. They both seem to ascribe to a panentheistic theology rather than a Dad in the Sky view of God's nature. I've always kinds of fluctuated between the two if I'm honest, believing God is everywhere and knows and sees all things but that for my human mind, this feels a little bit abstract and therefore simplifying my view of God into a more singular figure helps me focus my prayers and let's be honest, it's probably the conception of God most of us are bought up with? I mean he is our father after all. I wanted to go a little deeper with this. Now I understand that in the modern climate, concepts of energies pervading all things and pluralism in religion is probably much more compelling to the modern mind that the bearded dad in the sky concept. But my issue is really around prayer and its role within a panentheistic theology. Prayer is generally intercessionary and spoken in a way that to anyone listening would believe we are certainly speaking to an individual, which we are thanking, asking for something, or just generally conversing. How does prayer work with a panentheistic view? What does one visualise or aim there prayers towards? Is prayer even supposed to be intercessionary in this perspective? I do believe that God is in all things, and closer to the panentheistic conception in reality but that its my human mind that needs to make him humanlike to be able to relate to him, and this is fine. But do any ofbyou have positions on this? Do you wrestle with these concepts of God? Does the Church have a clear position on this,? And what are your thoughts on prayer within a panentheistic paradigm?
