Maybe I've just missed this or am incredibly dense. There is a generation gap in my congregation. In our understanding of who God is. Or there is a gap between the older (and a few younger) members and me (who only the 90 year olds would call young). The older members see God as a God who comforts, who makes life easier, who helps them through the difficult spots. I see God as a prod, a pusher, someone who challenges me and the church. My challenge now is to appreciate the God who comforts.
