Sunday June 5th: "Polydoxy" shared by Rich Ater
My Father's house has many mansions, if it were not so would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? John 14:2.
Polydoxy is a new movement in theology that combines theological study with quantum mechanics. It states that how one sees religious truth depends on where one is standing and changes as one observes it. Yet truth remains constant.
Rich Ater is a long time friend of the Interfaith Sanctuary and has been a student of Theology, Philosophy, and comparative religion for over 40 years. He is a Christian, a Theosophist, and a Druid who sweetens his path with Sufism and Hereticism.
In the Universal Worship, we turn toward the source of all spiritual revelation and let it shine into ourselves, our communities, and our world. Honoring all the wisdom traditions of humanity equally, we join in an ongoing cosmic celebration with all of creation, from the mineral to the angelic.
The Universal Worship recognizes that all religions originate in the same Truth. All of the great teachers and prophets have reflected this truth to humanity in their own way. The same power that inspired them continues to move through and guide our own lives. Read more here.
Messages, Music, Readings and Ritual for our Universal Worship services in 2016 will be focused upon the spiritual discernment of the year, Spiritual Permaculture: Coming into Deeper Relationship with Earth. Read more here.
