God in Public

The title of this blog came from a 7 yr old boy in a First Communion class who already knew that God did not live only in church. He wanted to know if he could talk about “God in public”. I have pondered his wisdom for many years, and now it has led to this…a blog about God in public.

I have given thought to having a blog for a long time; in fact I was still thinking about it and didn’t realize that is what I was signing up for until it appeared.

The questions within my reflections are now freed from years of wondering how I could possibly by-pass the rules that seemed in such a culture as this was in the past, to disallow, God in public. And while all of those “rules” are still in place as to the separation of this and that, they are no longer as clear or as strong as they once were.

So, for tonight, the first of my accidental posts…God shows up, “bidden or unbidden” .

Of course it is silly to say so, but some how God must use the www. to connect us in a way that only seemed possible in the Spirit in the past.

I will think more in the future before I blog.


About kathrynrickert

Possibly from watching the movie Bambie at the age of 6, I have had a life-long awareness that saying ONLY nice things, does not make the world just or kind. Thus, my 2009 doctoral dissertation..."Talking Back to God" , is one of the main aspects of the work I do. Always interdisciplinary, seeking connections across borders that are usually marked with DO NOT ENTER, I seek to pay attention, pray, think, create,and imagine using biblical laments, Christian worship texts, and the ordinary stuff of everyday life.
