Conventional religion has often focused on God’s will, God’s plan and God’s rules. But the mystical core of the gospel is our personal experience of what has been called “the wanting-to-be of God in our lives.” What does it mean to re-imagine the focus of spiritual practice? Where do we understand the connection between God’s love for us and our desire to love God? How do we experience ‘new life’ and the heart of God rather than just obedience?
