Many people, without realizing, end up with two gods:

One god is an impersonal one, an all-encompassing, transcendent force.

But then, at times of trouble, they cry out to another, personal god, with whom they have an intimate relationship.

Our faith is all about knowing that these two are one. The same G‑d who is beyond all things, He is the same one who hears your cries and counts your tears. The same G‑d who is the force behind all existence and transcends even that, He is the same G‑d who cares about what is cooking in your kitchen and how you treat your fellow human being.

G‑d cannot be defined, even as transcendent. He is beyond all things and within them at once.
