The Promise and Perplexities
My secular audiences tell me that I bring a unique perspective to the value of a human being, to the centrality of relationship, and to the priority of joy as a means of navigating the certainties and uncertainties of daily life. I owe that perspective to my experience with religious thought, as well as other disciplines, including philosophy, psychology, sociology, the neurosciences, and literature.
My religious audiences tell me that I bring a uniquely helpful perspective in overcoming the blindspots of religion. I owe much of that awareness to what I’ve learned from working with secular audiences and the disconnects that they experience with religion.
So, the posts on this blog will reflect my experience in working with both of these audiences and will, I hope, create a clearer picture of what it means to be fully human as we together explore what is common to us all.
