Image via WikipediaMy view of G-d has changed immensely since the Sunday School days when I was taught G-d was a big, old (angry) man in the sky. Recently, someone asked me to define what I mean when I say "G-d". Wow. That is a very difficult task. He challenged me about saying I believe in G-d when I can't define G-d. Well, I do and I can't.
The closest I can come to describing the nature of G-d is a view called Panentheism. Panentheism is kind of a cross between the old image of G-d as purely transcendant- out there, separate from G-d's creation and pantheism which basically says that G-d is the universe (and nothing more). Panthentheism recognizes that G-d is both immanent and transcendent. Eastern religions have been criticized for "depersonifying" G-d and when Westerners begin saying things like G-d is "transpersonal" (I first heard Marcus Borg use this term), some think we mean G-d is less than personal.
This article comes very close to describing the way I view G-d. I hope you find it useful.
This article does the best job of describing Panentheism (and my view of G-d) that I have seen. Much better than I could have myself. I especially like the analogy where compared impersonal to personal and personal to transpersonal and used the example of how a rock is impersonal and we are so much more alive (personal) than a rock. Likewise, the transpersonal G-d is that much more alive and expressive than we are.
