Reality is our God,

Evidence is our scripture

Big history is our creation story

Ecology is our theology

Integrity is our spirituality

Ensuring a healthy future is our mission

Please join us for this evolutionary look at spirituality, science, and our part in “making all things new.”

Rev Michael Dowd 2Given our impact on Earth’s climate, the seas, and other species, humanity is about to experience what could be called, The Great Reckoning. The good news is that this may also be, The Great Homecoming. A worldwide meta-religious movement has been emerging for decades, largely unnoticed, at the nexus of science, inspiration, and sustainability. Beliefs are secondary. What unites us are a pool of common values, priorities, and commitments regarding the importance of living in right relationship to Reality/Nature/Time and working together in service of a just and thriving future for humanity and the larger body of life. Voiced mythically: Reality is our God, evidence is our scripture, big history is our creation story, ecology is our theology, integrity is our spirituality, and ensuring a healthy future is our mission.
