  1. God as warrior, God as midwife. What role does metaphor play in understanding and deepening our reading of biblical narrative, our relationship to God?
  2. In what ways does a prayer book acknowledge the various ways we come to know God? How is metaphor a gateway into prayer? Does it open or close a path to a personal God?
  3. Are words “incidental” to prayer?
  4. What assumptions do you bring to your encounters with text? How are those assumptions complicated by your secular experiences?
