a pneumatology for the emergent age
The unseen, yet experienced, energy that animates every created thing in the universe. The Spirit is from God, is God, and was manifest in Jesus the Christ, fully animating his life. The Spirit is compassion and love permeating all that exists, and in which all things abide.
The Spirit's manifested and animating presence in living entities; that whole that is the Spirit's particular presence in all that lives.
the Ultimate Aim of God
The ultimate Aim of God to which all things are directed, or lured to, is compassion and love, through liberation, transformation and healing. The Spirit is the motivating attraction of God that lures souls toward this Aim. My soul is that in me which is attracted, drawn towards, lured to, God's ultimate Aim.
The continued cycle of God's luring, towards God's Ultimate Aim, through birth, growth, maturity, death, and birth again.
