“…we are God’s creatures; we are a manifestation of the love of God.” ~ Elder Thaddeus of Vitovnica
REV DR DURRELL WATKINS
Holy seasons call us into deeper contemplation and spiritual living; so, we consider what we believe about the ultimate Reality we call God. The reason that is important is that we will never be better than what we believe God to be. If God is judging, punishing, exclusive, prejudiced, demanding or separate from us, we can never believe ourselves to be good, we will never feel loving or compassionate, and we certainly will never truly feel safe in the universe. We are made in the divine image, so what we believe about the divine is very important; our beliefs about the divine shape what we believe about ourselves.

Spirituality is both a personal and a shared experience; it is private and communal. The old religious dogmas, hierarchies, creeds, and antiquated vocabularies are increasingly irrelevant to 21st century seekers of truth; but the shared spiritual journey still has value.
Can we move beyond the irrelevance of outmoded religion and still form spiritual communities, embrace life enhancing rituals, enjoy sacred stories, and ask honest questions that may not have preapproved answers? One liberal minister thinks that such spiritual communities are possible and needed and he has devoted his life to creating such communities.
A humanistic spirituality can still embrace mystery and wonder, hope and peace, possibilities and wisdom, and as we offer such spirituality, a new generation may discover that houses of worship can still have meaning.
