What does God look like?

  1. Great question!! When I was about 2 or 3 years old, I used to picture God as a huge mermaid. I have no idea why, but the idea still interests me. Your closing line is compelling…beautifully said & something to reflect on.

  2. Picturing God raises a similar question. We strive to find God in the world around us, so children and adults, the rich and the poor, can all point us toward encounters with the divine.

    I agree with Jade that your closing line is compelling.

  3. It seems there are so many answers to this question, depending on the person, the life lived, the situations. The image can range from a sunset to an expression in someone’s eyes, to a feeling that merely gives us perspective. Interesting contemplation this Thursday.

  4. Godde for me looks like the Beloved. But when I was five years old, he looked like Moses on a throne in heaven.
    This is a lovely post, Andie. Thank you. Godde is also undoubtedly in everyone. I find her most easily among marginals. I just have to remind myself that She is also in the rich 🙂

  5. This is such an honest question. I would like to know, wouldn’t you? I love the Jewish tradition of Midrash that teaches to ask questions this way. We have a children’s book written by a rabbi called, Does God have a Big Toe? the Bible stories in it are kind of written that way…weird answers to our questions. It’s a lot of fun.

    Enjoy your day!
