It is one of the strange things about our culture that we are one of the few groups of people in history who find it hard to believe in God. There are many reasons for this, but one is that we have inherited a very narrow understanding of what it means to experience God, and what God is like. In our series at St. Mark’s on the Song of Songs we come this week to a passage that considers the incredible range of things to enjoy in the world. Love, the beauty of nature, food, smells, recreation, rest, and so much more. Each one of these is a gift of God, as are the many sensitive capacities that we have to experience all these different pleasures and joys. The question becomes not how we could possibly experience God, but how we could avoid it! So where will you experience God today?
