Opinion - Learning the ropes

As we mature in our spirituality, we learn that there is more to our relationship with God than the rote prayers of our childhood in which we talked to/at God. We discover that we need to listen to God in an open expectant way and respond to God’s invitation to build a relationship. If we are honest with ourselves and persevere with building a relationship with God, God may allow us to reach that state Gregory of Nyssa describes in which ‘God is experienced but never finally known’. - Cecily McNeill, Wel-com
