Sunday night we will again engage the DVD series Beyond Theology by watching "Episode 7: A Spirituality of Co-Creation". The term and concept "co-creation" are familiar to The Gathering as we often say we are co-creating with God. In this 25 minute dvd, we'll further explore this idea. Sister Joan Chittester begins the conversation by saying: "We need a new spirituality in our time -- not simply an intellectual spirituality, not simply a relational spirituality, not simply a contemplative spirituality, but a spirituality that emerges out of the concept of the responsibility to co-creation - meaning: God did not create this world finished; God left the world unfinished for us to do, to complete. That's how we understand the whole function of human science, human education, human charity, human spirituality".
The Beyond Theology series explores the evolution of consciousness and examines topics such as the challenges confronting humanity and the changing representations of God. Bill Moyers praises the series by saying, "This is an ambitious series with some of the most interesting voices in religion in America today. They take us beyond the current conflicts about religion and politics and show us a hopeful vision of faith based on the deepest longings of heart and mind."
Our offering will be designated for needs within The Gathering community as well as for Project Dignidad. Please bring canned/nonperishable food products or donate money for food to be bought. Every little bit makes a big difference.
