Are you looking for "more" in your relationship with God and others but maybe are not too sure where to find it?
Are you concerned that others have that special set of instructions guaranteed to bring closeness with God?
Do you feel a bit left out, on the edge of the services and liturgies in your church?
There's no point telling you not to worry. If you have any desire for intimacy with God, of course you will be concerned. You want to feel God closer. At times, you might even experience your desire as an ache inside, something knawing at you in a place you don't seem to be able to reach.
In the midst of your concern, take some small comfort from the fact that you are definitely not on your own. In fact, you are in very good company. Many others like you, restless and unwilling to settle for what at the moment seems like a very limited experience of God's presence, are looking for more.
Far from being a sign of trouble, or an indication of a lack of faith, this searching is a healthy thing. God is amazing mystery: much of who God "is" will always be outside the range of our human intellect and senses. We may experience God's presence as warmth and love or, as many do, experience it fleetingly. However, deep down we know that God will always be beyond us. Our hearts will always be searching for the "more" of God.
So it seems, we are destined as humans to be always restless, always looking for the "more" of who God is. But that restlessness has purpose; that knawing ache within is your inner sat-nav. It will feed and fuel your search and will bring you to a different and deepening awareness of the experience of God's presence in your life; within you and in those with whom you meet.
As Christians, united in this Body of Christ, and thus not created to be working "solo"-there is one thing of which you can be sure, you are not to be left to find God on your own. He is looking for you . . .
. . . and human help and the consolation of some company are available along the way.
This site offers just that: some help and a bit of company. Grounded in scripture, rooted in Ignatian Spirituality and drawing on good teaching from a variety of Christian traditions, the site will enable you to become more familiar with the landscape of relationship with God, more aware of who God is and who you are. The site will help you grow in relationship with God as you find him in your own church, its people and its liturgies. It will help you to be at home with God as you find him in daily life and to realise his closeness, at home with you.
