What has been your experience in your family hearing the name of God invoked? Did it have positive or negative connotations?

Do you believe it is good or necessary to invoke the name of Divinity in your everyday conversations? How often do you actually do it?

If the mention of God is not part of your daily conversation, try it for a few days and see how it feels. Use a name for Divinity that feels right to you, for example, Holy One, Beloved, Creator, Spirit. If it makes you uncomfortable or feels artificial, don't force it -- but strive to connect with Divinity silently in your own heart frequently throughout the day.
