The Case For God

I’ll be in the pulpit again next Sunday, this time at my own church.  Here’s the blurb I sent to Moonlady News…

Many religious liberals are attracted to the New Atheists’ critique of fundamentalism and biblical literalism. Much of what they say makes good sense, and we love hearing them tell the fundamentalist emperors they have no clothes. At the same time, the New Atheists’ claim that “religion poisons everything” doesn’t match our own experiences of wonder and awe, and ignores the value of the loving communities we have built.

This Sunday, August 15, John Beckett will be the lay speaker at the Denton Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. In this service inspired by Karen Armstrong’s book of the same title, we’ll look at where we are, how we got here and how we can move forward in both faith and reason.

The service begins at 10:30 AM and everyone is welcome.

About John Beckett

I’m a Druid in the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids. I’m an ordained priest in the Universal Gnostic Fellowship. I’m the Coordinating Officer of the Denton, Texas Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans. This year I’m also serving as a member of the Board of Trustees of CUUPS National. I’m a member of the Denton Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.

I write as a spiritual practice. It helps me organize my thoughts and work through ideas and concepts. It helps me evaluate my beliefs and practices against my core values and against what I know (or at least, what I think I know) to be true. It helps me interpret my experiences (religious and otherwise) in ways that are both meaningful and honest.
