God's beyond our names

To the Catholic Sentinel:

Theresa Bower shares her inspiration: “God is not a liberal!”

I agree with Theresa, but neither is God a “conservative.”

Nor is He any other human label (“male,” “Catholic”....) we assign Creator.
God is greater than human attributes theologians affix to Deity, but then, so are humans:
 
Liberal, conservative, gender, race, religious affiliation, athleticism, club memberships — these earthly distinctions that seem important are lost over time;  are all erased in final breaths.

We should not let human “labels” define or divide us; these are only a scaffolding of inner reality.

Joan Powers, Lake Oswego
