Tim asks about the immanence of God, as found in discovering the wonders of the universe. More often than not, when I read stories about the universe I get more impressed on how small we are in relation to it.
Dailykos had a piece on how about three quarters of the mass of the universe is literally a void, of matter and energy. That's a universe where much of the language about God as Tim has noted, has too often not been up to the task.
I do find the immanence of God through personal relationships, whether that of humans or of other animals. The loving care of communities, of relatives and friends, of pets. And examples of people who are making a difference in the lives of others.
Immanent language makes sense, when one thinks of how we are constituted by our personal relations. Transcendent language makes sense when we consider the kind of universe we live in. Immanent and transcendent, keeping them together is key I think.
