My answer was that I hoped I could show that God was bigger than Christianity. I remembering writing that and feeling so comforted by the vision of God it gave me. It made so much sense that the richness and depth of our God couldn't even been expressed or realised in the vast variety of Humanity, let alone closing definitions of Christianity.
Now I'm finding that those closing definitions of my Protestant upbringing more and more are slowly falling off, whether that's defining in God by what he isn't, or learning that the sacraments are mysteries and not rituals, or that Heaven and Hell are in the same realm.
Many Christians may struggle with the idea that God is bigger than Christianity and believe that His Truth is only found in our definitions. But what I'm struggling with more now, is the idea that God might not be bigger than myself. I'm finding the limitations I put on God are more dangerous than Christianity's limitations on him. Now I pray I can live a life that shows that God is bigger than me - this doesn't comfort me nearly as much!
Right now it feels like I'm looking into water and seeing myself rather than the lake - maybe I need to lift my head...
