Many critical definitions of Deism describe a watchmaker God who abandoned His creation. Many, perhaps most, Deists feel that God designed His creation with enough precision that further intervention is unnecessary. And an intervening God raises the question of evil. If God does intervene in His creation, why does He allow suffering to exist? For some Deists there is a reasonable middle path. Creation is not necessarily an event that took place billions of years ago. We can also look at creation as a process that is still unfolding. We may not see evidence that God is intervening, i.e. stopping or changing the process of creation, but this opens up the possibility that God is still interacting with his creation. If God or God's spirit is still present in the creation, we may experience interaction with His spirit. This is spirituality at its root. Join us Saturday, February 19th as we explore the notion of a non-interfering Deist God and the possibility of interacting with God and God's creation. Come spend 30 minutes with us beginning at 4:00 PM Central, 5:00 Eastern, 10:00 in the UK, 11:00 in Germany and 9:00 AM Sunday in Australia. This is interaction week. Don't miss it!
