Without solitude it is virtually impossible to live a spiritual life. Solitude begins with a time and place for God, and him alone. If we really believe that God exists but also that he is actively present in our lives—healing, teaching, and guiding—we need to set aside a time and space to give him our undivided attention.
~Henri Nouwen, from Making All Things New.
Paul has a strong foundation for understanding and entering into the comprehensive ways in which God is God: the ways in which God reveals himself as Father (the glories of creation and covenant); the ways in which God makes himself known as Son (the salvation accomplished in Jesus and the salvation community which is the church); the ways in which God is present with us as Spirit (the very life of God has given to us as a profusion of gifts empowering us to live the life of God)…. All the ways that God is God are implicit in all that God is and speaks and does…. The life of God and human life are not separate subjects. The primary way in which we participate in who God is in all the particularities of our actual living, deeply, personally, and inextricably in relationship, in the way of the Holy Spirit. It is because of God’s way with us as Spirit that we know that everything in and about God is livable—God bringing us into participation with God. Father, Son and Holy Spirit are not merely truths to be learned and believed. They are to be lived. The church is not primarily a place for education. It is a place, a playing field if you will, to practice God, to practice resurrection.
