Are we pursuing God, or is God pursuing us?
And what does it matter if we reverse the emphasis?
With special guest Joshua Ryan Butler, Geoff and Dave discuss talk about God’s pursuit of us.
Evangelicals of the contemplative lean or activist bent have their own set of practices they feel helps them pursue God. But often these lead to a dead end or burn out. Can we understand life with God as God’s pursuit of us, and what might this mean for our understanding of the atonement and the church, and even the uniqueness of Jesus. We end by talking about the different practices of being “found” by God.
