Leaving Earth: Trajectory and Projections

Sunday Services are at 9:15 & 11:00 am
Like the first sea creatures to crawl out of the primordial oceans onto land, life on Earth is now crawling into outer space. In this sermon I’ll consider what this means for our species and for life itself in the near and distant future.

Getting Our House in Order: Economics, Universal Basic Income, and Guaranteeing a Basic Quality of Life

Sunday Services are at 9:15 & 11:00 am
When reducing our concept of economics to money, we reduce the solutions to society’s biggest challenges to having more money. In this sermon I’ll challenge this presumption by exploring a broader definition of economics, the limitations of money, and better ways to tackle our problems and fashion a society that works for everyone.

Human Nature: The Animal that Thinks it’s Not

Sunday Services are at 9:15 & 11:00 am
Humanism is the opposite of the Doctrine of Original Sin because it doesn’t believe in human depravity, the notion that human nature is inherently evil. Yet this doctrine has been with us so long that many who may no longer believe in it still accept there’s something innately wrong with human nature. In this sermon I’ll argue that human nature, like that of all animals, is an expression of nature and we are no less a part of our Earth than any of our fellow creatures.
