9.0% "The difference between knowing God and knowing about Him. We would all do well to really try to understand Him - as the Person He is. And good point on trying to cultivate meditation in one's life, as opposed to just prayer: Meditation, thinking about God and yourself and considering His attributes. I should do that more often."

15.0% "God as an exalted king or statesman, a good comparison, which should make us pause to consider what a privilege it is to serve Him."

23.0% "I felt wonderfully willing to receive the instruction this time around, as I sat with R in the quiet of the bedroom. The lacking of truth and divine glory in images, the complex wonders of the Incarnation. All very worthwhile and wonderful. So nice to learn about God, not just how He relates to you. O glorious old fashioned Christianity!"
