Conclusions from "God at 2000"

On the cover of the book "God at 2000" Marcus Borg writes that there were shared conclusions from the seven speakers. These were the beliefs that:

  • God, or the "sacred," is eneffable, beyond all words and concepts.
  • God is not "a being," but a non-material layer or level or dimension of reality that permeates everything, and at the same time is more than everything;
  • God can be experienced.
I go along with these three statements. They make sense and ring true in my experience.
