June 29, 2017 (Tallahassee): Lloyd Geering writes: "The very great difference...between the emerging global world and the many traditional worlds it is undermining and threatening to supersede is that they were meaningful worlds and the global world is not, or at least not yet...All the worlds which humans had constructed prior to modernity had been …

Russian doll of religion

March 14, 2017 (Nairobi): In Judaism, Yahweh was the god of a single ethnic group: the Hebrews. God's promise to them was Canaan, a physical place, and their 'heaven' was to be a kingdom set up on this earth, in Israel. And their holy book was the Torah, and their holy men were Abraham, Moses, …

Human manifesto

March 13, 2017 (Nairobi): The question has come up recently as to whether I am still a Christian or not. Well, if being a 'Christian' means that I believe that: Jesus Christ was the sole and final human embodiment of God, born of a virgin, who lived divinely without sin or error of any kind, …

Human hypercluster

"Human beings, as other organisms at higher rungs of biological evolution, are hyperclusters of wave interference patterns, oscillating across a broad range of frequencies." - Ervin Laszlo January 26, 2017 (Nairobi): In December I read a mind-blowing book by Ervin Laszlo (and others) called What is Reality?: The New Map of Cosmos, Consciousness, and Existence. …

Heal the human

October 5, 2016 (Kampala): It struck me yesterday while reading The Whole-Brained Child that the universe is like a brain.

Linguistic cosmology

August 11, 2016 (Kampala): Let me try to express - at this moment just prior to our departure from East Africa - what I now envision as the next permutation of the my life's work: Ultimately, I want to help, to do my unique part in 'building the Kingdom of God', 'bringing heaven to earth' …

Cosmic sexuality

Today one of my sisters-in-law is expected to give birth to her first child. I'll write this post in honor of that momentous event. Yesterday I watched videos by Teal Swan on the psychological split within women and men. Her words seeded my mind, and this post is a birth of verbal expression. Sexuality isn't …

Body of God

July 19, 2016 (Kampala): I've started reading Sallie McFague's book The Body of God: An Ecological Theology...It's an amazing book; I keep asking myself why I waited so long to read it! She is presenting an 'organic' model of God-in-the-World, a theological cosmology that centers on bodies and embodiment. She's preaching to the choir as …

Cosmic properties

May 25, 2016 (Kampala): The beliefs and experiences we assume to be the province of Christianity do not, in fact, belong to Christianity alone: The inspiration of texts that we attribute solely to the Bible is not a property of the Bible alone. It is a property of the Cosmos. The joy, peace, hope, and …
