Many Progressive Christians say that they can no longer pray to God because they no longer think of God as a person.
The reason for this goes back to our scientific education.
We have been trained to think of the universe out there as atoms, and force, and energy.
Therefore when we try to fit God into this picture He becomes an impersonal force or energy.
You cannot pray to an impersonal force or energy.
What we are forgetting is that animals and humans are also part of the universe.
And if God is everything and more then He is also being and consciousness and intelligence.
We can pray to a God that has being and consciousness and intelligence.
God also has a heart.
And it is when we realize this that we are able to love God as He loves us.
