Nested, Emergent, Divine Nature, Rev. Kent Matthies

Our religion proclaims that we should all worship the earth, the sun, and the stars. More akin to Native American than traditional Christian theologies of the 1830’s, Unitarian Henry David Thoreau said we must not think of the planet as a “dead, inert mass”; rather we should fully acknowledge and celebrate her as an “organic body with spirit.”  How amazing to realize that like all our fellow animals and plants, within us are subatomic particles, which reside within atoms, which comprise molecules, cells, and organisms. We have the power to help channel this divine creativity to help save and protect our Blue Boat which we call Home. Happy Earth Day!
