Season 3: Divine Mirror

"God is beyond the realm of opposites." As our season-long exploration of aspects of the divine approaches its end, Rev. Peggy and Rev. Sarah spend time today discussing the complicated, cyclical, always-in-process relationship between humans and the divine. Beginning with a discussion of human gender binaries and how they have been projected onto the divine through time, this episode explores how humans see themselves in God -- and, perhaps, vice-versa. This episode references a few external concepts and resources you might be interested to explore: Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer (Rev. Peggy recommends the audiobook!): https://milkweed.org/book/braiding-sweetgrass Process and Reality by Alfred North Whitehead: https://bookshop.org/books/process-and-reality In Face of Mystery by Gordon Kaufman: https://bookshop.org/books/in-face-of-mystery-a-constructive-theology In The Beginning...Creativity by Gordon Kaufman https://bookshop.org/books/in-the-beginning-paper/ The Apocryphon of John (Gnostic Gospel): http://www.gnosis.org/naghamm/nhl_sbj.htm This episode is also available on YouTube at youtube.com/c/ccnyuu.
