Christian philosopher Dallas Willard described intimacy as “shared experience.”
He meant that our lives are more than flesh and blood. They’re a series of experiences. The birth of a child. A great conversation. A hike up a mountain trail. A great piece of music. Intimacy is simply inviting someone to share in the experience that you’re having.
We do that with God and with other people every day. But some days it doesn’t seem so simple, does it?
