Thanks to a very good conversation I've had with Kay (in the comments on these three posts: 1,2,3) starting with the brief mention of penetheism in Andrew's post, I'm starting to become more open to the possibility that I may be a panentheist... of sorts.
If it is possible that God's wholly-otherness is compatible with panentheism, then perhaps it's not panentheism that I have a problem with. Perhaps I merely take issue with certain stands therein. Perhaps my own views that God, who is radically separate from creation, also soaks his creation and has chosen to radically open himself up to creation, are actually at least pseudo-penentheistic in themselves. The confusion then is in the label. Can panentheism be defined as simply as "all in God"? If this is so, and if I can reject some of the deeper implications not least the eschatological ones that could arise, then I can probably take the title (although I generally avoid titles and labels). But if panentheism is so simple, then who isn't a panentheist? I know many who would not hesitate to say that God can be experienced in creation and through relationships but would be very hesitant to embrace panentheism for themselves.
As Dr. Okholm, my theology professor from APU, used to say, "labels are training wheels for the mind." Eventually we've got to function beyond them.
