God experiences

Moltmann asks, “How does God experience me?”

“What do I mean for God? How is he determined by me?”

Spirituality tends to be anthropocentric, focused on ‘me,’ tending to place ‘me’ as the subject, oriented around my experiences, my feelings, my opinions. Very egocentric really. But am I the subject of spirituality, or the object of spirituality? Or both?

Do I determine reality or is my reality changed as God experiences me? What would it mean for my life to think not in terms of God “watching” me, like he’s always about looking for infractions, ready to give me demerits, about which I must seek forgiveness. Rather, if I were to think in terms of God experiencing me, drawing me into himself.

What experience do I provide?
