Sources of Faith

Sources of Faith

Life on Earth sings of creativity, multiplicity, abundance. Snowflakes… Soil… Fingerprints… Stars… Everything named “tree” differing from every other thing named “tree.” (Not only every tree, but every wonder-soaked leaf on the same tree. Completely unique.) How much more so for this very human creation called, “religion.” Maybe religion, like nature or nature’s God, abhors monotony. Maybe religion, like nature or nature’s God, ebbs and flows between unity and chaos in a cosmic dance of creativity, multiplicity, abundance. Perhaps faith, at its...

Balance & Emergence: Listen 2.0

Balance & Emergence: Listen 2.0

Human biology and neurology have confirmed what ancient wisdom (and, frankly, intuition) has always taught: Healthy individuality is impossible without community. Yet community demands conformity—with some communities demanding more conformity than others. This makes fully human life at best a balancing act. The March-April worship series “Listen 2.0” moves from a rich inner life cultivated by last series’ “Listening Within” to the necessary and more authentic life of “Listening to One Another.” It’s worship that offers the opportunity to...
