New Book for the New Year

TED-Grounded

2nd & 4th Tuesdays | 6:00pm | Heritage Room | childcare provided

The Tuesday Evening Dialogue (TED) continues their tradition of study and fellowship on January 12 with the latest from Diana Butler Bass: Grounded—Finding God in the World. 

“The headlines are clear: religion is on the decline in America as many people leave behind traditional religious practices. Diana Butler Bass, leading commentator on religion, politics, and culture, follows up her acclaimed book Christianity After Religion by arguing that what appears to be a decline actually signals a major transformation in how people understand and experience God. The distant God of conventional religion has given way to a more intimate sense of the sacred that is with us in the world. This shift, from a vertical understanding of God to a God found on the horizons of nature and human community, is at the heart of a spiritual revolution that surrounds us – and that is challenging not only religious institutions but political and social ones as well.”
