Three distinct experiences of God
We experience our graciously loving God as father, mother, parent, who gives us life and keeps us in existence, looks out for us, provides for us.
We experience our graciously loving God as brother, sister, who saves us from danger and death, reconciles us with our parent, shows us how to grow up and become responsible to others.
We experience our graciously loving God as friend, lover, companion, who lives within us in the most intimate relationship, draws us into community, makes us eager to tell others about Jesus and share Love with them.
At different times in our lives one of these experiences of God may appeal to us more than the other two, but every day we are swept into this Divine Circle of Love.
