The Issue of Evil
Yesterday Duncan and I drove to the local Universalist Unitarian church to check out their new lesbian minister, Reverend Myke Johnson (Duncan, of course, as always, volunteered to stay behind to guard the car).
Rev. Myke’s sermon was thought-provoking. She thinks perhaps the reason the liberal churches haven’t grown as fast as the fundies is because they’ve failed to address the issue of “evil.” Since this is a Goddess theology issue too, I stayed for the after-church coffee-and-discussion group. The discussion, however, was not about the sermon but about the upcoming fight between Maine fundies and Maine’s GLBT population. What an extraordinary church!
