How Do You Imagine God?
God in America and USA WEEKEND Magazine are partnering to explore Americans' images of God.

How do you imagine God? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator I don't think of God as some unified being, or gendered as a "he" or "she." I typically refer to it simply as "the Universe." The divine unknown. Whatever it is that makes the magic that is our world, our reality and our interwoven faiths all merge and flow together, albeit not always seamlessly. I don't think there's one right answer, one true religion or universal "Truth." I think God, the Divine, whatever you call it is exactly what you think it is-- it's whatever brings you peace when you pray, chant, or perform a ritual. It's what gives you courage when you're facing nigh impossible odds. It's what reminds us to be kind and loving to our fellow man, even when we disagree with them. God is the force that encourages us to do and remain good, and so long as that is our ultimate motivation, I don't see how any one way could be wrong. 5 people liked this
