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.
