The Divine Encounter #1
July 18, 1954
July 18, 1954. Running time: 31:25. Thurman discusses what people bring to their own religious experiences (a person brings their entire life). People distill their existence into what Thurman calls "the God residue" which gives greater significance to the things that are significant to them. God relates to people specifically at the places of greatest significance to them. Authentic feelings are needed in worship because the experience of worship helps individuals find that part of them that is most significant.
