Former pastor David Hayward shares his walk with God over the years:
Hayward writes about the phases of God that he went through:
It was the “God” in my mind that eventually and gradually let me go. It took, as I said, so many stages and so many decades for my idea of “God” to get to a place where I rest in Reality, what is True. I went from believing in a jealous God to a completely open idea of What-Is that is joyfully all-inclusive.
I suspect many of us had a similar journey, slowly walking away from the definition of God with which we were raised… to the point that it’s unrecognizable to the believers we began the journey with.
