Walking the Apophatic Way

Talk to the hand | Real Live Preacher.

I discovered Real Live Preacher a few months ago, and popped him into my blog reader.  I was surprised and delighted today to find him using the burning bush story in the same way I did a few weeks ago.  And there were positive comments from others with the same experience.

We’re followers of the apophatic way, the way of negation.  We’re the ones who take knives to the many almost-names encrusting experience, saying, “No, that’s not quite it.”  We’re the idol-burners.  The iconoclasts.

The way of negation is one half of a double helix, always twisting, dancing with the way of affirmation, the kataphatic way, the way of many names.
