Dr. Nik Richers in an email: “I am still trying to decipher your stance on religion, humanism, and these sermons … Some day I hope to figure out the Book of Bob (BOB). :).” Nik and I haven’t met in the real world yet, only via electronic messaging. Some day we will tip a couple of pints and sort all of this out. In the meantime . . .
Here are links to two of the many talks I have given at the Nanaimo Unitarian Fellowship. (a very friendly place by the way)
- “One of the attractions of the UU approach to religion and life is caught in the assertion that divinity and spirit are to be found not through blind faith but through finding and sending down roots to the deepest part of one’s unique self. As is true in botany, those roots spread out into the wider community and can nourish us and give us a healthy life. How do we know when we are living in the best place for those roots to grow? In so much as we do indeed “grow a soul” we should consider carefully the garden in which that soul grows.”
