As a Presbyterian elder (PCUSA) married to a Catholic, my perspective starts from a background grounded in scripture. It values intellectual understanding. Into that deep watering of the Word, has come hearing God. This Blog, is focused on both hearing God, & "deep" theological studies as we seek to understand the paradoxes of truth. Each path is infinite; never will I fully understand theology, or clearly hear God & be fully intimate with the infinite. Both journeys are important. Like walking a log, you can fall off either side.
Part of this blessed journey, is going to both Catholic & Presbyterian churches, (when we married, we agreed to both go to both churches). A liturgical Catholic church, often is a place I clearly hear God, since it gives space to listen. Some services can lack space to, "be still and know I am God". Although, one of my strangest encounters with God was at communion in a Presbytery meeting. A communion plate passed. I heard: "Turn aside and follow Me. See Me in the homeless man..." I tried to write down what I heard, & take communion. God has a sense of humor. Join me hearing poems from God. I just take dictation. Be still and listen.
