Theosis 1.

God wishes to be in relationship with humanity.

He offers us a New Covenant.

So we should be about our Father's business.

And this is the business of theology.

One of the concepts of theology is theosis or union with God.

This is brought about gradually once we have established a relationship with God (traditionally through baptism) by purification (katharsis) and contemplation (theoria).

Questions about the nature of God and His relationship with humanity are foremost in Progressive Christianity.

We are experiencing a revolution in the way we see God and humankind.

Love purifies the heart.

And it is love that unites us with God.
